Katie and Michael met on Bumble in 2015, bonded over both being high school educators, and agreed to a date! Michael took Katie to a dive bar in Davis Square, and they both showed up wearing matching grey Patagonia sweaters. You could say it was definitely fate! After a few years of dating, many many cocktails, good meals, and bicycle rides later, Michael proposed in Hawaii!
They planned a local Cambridge wedding at Oleana restaurant in May 2020, until COVID-19 got in the way of those plans. They decided to elope on their original date in Somerville with immediate family and friends and save the party for 2021 instead. Katie’s mom cried throughout the ceremony, and Michael’s parents joined via FaceTime. It was socially distanced, but still romantic and intimate as can be! Katie’s aunt handmade masks for the happy couple, who sported them to stay super safe. We can’t wait to keep the good times rolling for their reception! Congrats Katie and Michael!
