Kate and Del’s Love Story

They met Labor Day weekend at a local coffee shop where they engaged in a brief conversation that left a lasting impression in Del’s mind. ” I could instantly tell that she was different. She was so beautiful and I loved her aura,” Del recalled as he reflected on the day they first met. The couple had a whirlwind romance that got serious rather quickly. Together they love to cook, travel, visiting beautiful parks, and basking in scenic views.

The day Del asked Kate to be his wife will be a day they’ll always remember. Del proposed at a place that was sentimental to both of them. He asked her to marry him at the Kennedy Center which is where the couple shared their first kiss. Kate describes it as the best day of her life.
Kate and Del wasted no time in planning their wedding. However, due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, the couple decided to have a small and intimate wedding. They desire to have a unique wedding that was authentic to who they are which is why they decided to have the wedding ceremony at Great Falls Virginia which is one of the most popular outdoor spaces in the Washington D.C. area. The dramatic waterfalls, the calming never-ending flow of the Potomac River, and the sweeping view of the mountains make Great Falls a beautiful place to elope.
