Katie & Jon

July 9, 2016

Bride’s name: Katie Sears

Groom’s name: Jon Schulz

Occupations: Katie is a dental hygienist and Jon is a graphic designer.

How they met: Katie and Jon were set up by mutual friends.

The proposal: “We went on a day trip to Denali after everything had closed down for the season. Jon got down on one knee in the pouring rain and pulled out a ring. I cried tears of happiness as he asked me to marry him.”

Number of guests: 125

Wedding colors: Blush pink and metallics

Most memorable moment…

For her: “Being so happy to finally be married and excitement about starting our married life together.”

For him: “The first look.”

Unique aspects of the day: “I love that my entire family helped with everything: flowers, decorations, desserts, praying and special readings during the ceremony, helping me with my dress, and so much more,” recalls Katie. “I've never felt so loved.”

Funniest moment: “My dress was tight and I wanted to relax and breathe before the ceremony. I didn't want to wrinkle my dress, so I sat on the floor in the middle of the dressing room with my dress unzipped and my huge tulle skirt spread over the entire floor. I just chatted with my bridesmaids and waited for the ceremony to start.”

Three words that best describe their day: “Elegant, sweet, vintage.”

What Katie loves most about her husband: “He is so compassionate and is always thinking of others.”

What Jon loves most about his wife: “Her sweet personality.”

Best advice for a couple planning their wedding: “Don't stress out trying to make everyone happy. Relax and enjoy the planning! Everything truly does come together in the end and your guests will have a great time.”
