Wedding Feature: Katie & Max

Katie & Max’s wedding day at Exelsior Lancaster was beautiful, and it was such an honor to be a part of their special day. We wanted to feature them because of how much fun we had performing for them and their guests, and how beautifully Cait Kramer captured their memories.

“Katie and Max actually met on Bumble! They realized they grew up in the same hometown, knew a ton of the same people, went to the same undergrad, and lived just a few blocks from each other in DC! How had they never met before?! They meshed almost immediately, and the rest was history! They were engaged on Thanksgiving in 2020. Max says he knew he wanted to marry Katie when they were in Europe in early 2020 (Which just so happened to be the week of the travel-ban! If you can survive a vacation like that as a couple, you can say it’s meant to be!). Max was hoping to propose later in the year when they could visit Seattle, a city these two visited together and absolutely loved, but 2020 had other plans!”

“Max decided to propose at Thanksgiving with both of their immediate families there to celebrate! Katie and Max were hosting Thanksgiving for the first time, and Katie was so nervous! She was cooking all morning with Max’s mom and refused to leave the kitchen, hoping to get dinner together perfectly. Max’s dad insisted on making a toast, and Max took over about halfway and proposed to Katie! Max jokes that he didn’t even feel nervous because Katie was so adamant that they start the wedding planning process soon!”

Their guests were READY to party! One of my favorite parts of the day was seeing just how BIG both Katie and Max’s smiles were out on the dance floor. It was such a joy to see just how much fun they were having celebrating with their favorite people.
