We heard from Katrina & Jon for the first time not much more than a month before their wedding. You see they had a big wedding all planned for later this year that was quite joyfully moved up a few months when Katrina & Jon found out they would be expecting their first child :)
Their story all starts about 8 years ago when they first met at Sacred Heart University, he was a Sophomore and she was a freshman, he played football and she was a cheerleader. A few years down the road and they move to Delaware for Jon’s work are engaged for almost two years and suddenly their world is changing….and so is their wedding date!
They chose to have their wedding at the lovely Chesapeake Inn because it is one of their favorite local places to go in the summer. Katrina actually worked at their sister restaurant and checked with them right away when their wedding plans changed. They were thrilled when the venue was open for their new date and then focused their plans on having everything ready to celebrate with all of their closest friends and family in one place!
Their day was filled with beauty! Elegance and romance just followed them around all day. From the gold and plum colors, to their constant smiles and laughter, this couple had an incredible day to commit their lives to one another :)

Katrina’s sister, matron of honor, hairdresser extraordinaire and one of the hands behind the wedding florals is a little further along than Katrina but was an incredible support to the couple throughout this whole change of plans. The babies are saying hi I think in this picture.
