It was absolutely THE hottest day of the summer!! Sweat dripping everywhere, and I'm not kidding! BUT, Katelyn & PJ brought the heat... making it even hotter!

Katelyn had a dream, of a fairytale wedding! And she certainly got it! Despite the heat, Katelyn looked absolutely ravishing in her Watters gown and beautiful Tangles inspired hair by Unbridaled Beauty. PJ couldn't compose himself and continuously declared how lucky he is to have such an amazing woman by his side. The way he looks at her... wow, any woman would be lucky to have that! The two of them are utterly inspiring to love everywhere!

Continue on for their story and amazing photos of their special day!

A little about the couple...

"Our story begins on August 1, 2015. On a beautiful summer night, we met through mutual friends at a bar in Hoboken. Somehow we ended up sitting next to each other at the dinner table, and once PJ sparked up a conversation, we just couldn’t stop talking!! We both felt a strong connection right away. The next 24 hours consisted of PJ serenading me with John Mayor songs on his guitar, and belly-aching laughter on his rooftop while gazing at the stars. The next day was his grandmas birthday and when he called to wish her a happy birthday, he told her he met the girl of his dreams.

Our first “official” date was a few days later in Hoboken, out for dinner and drinks... PJ was so nervous he couldn’t stop winking at me!!!!! We have been inseparable since day ONE.

In May 2019, we planned a trip to Montreal for my birthday weekend, a City I’ve always wanted to visit. Pj told me he wanted to watch the sunrise together, on the famous Mont Royal lookout. We used to wake up for sunrises in Hoboken so this was not unusual. I was about to roll out of bed in my pajamas for the sunrise but PJ told me he had a birthday surprise for me afterward (thank god he's so smart). So, I got dressed up assuming we would go to brunch.

We get to the lookout at 5:30 AM and it’s beautiful. We are enjoying the view when PJ turns to me, asking if I remember when he went on a work trip in January, and then tells me he lied to me about it... I think I turned white as a ghost, no idea where he was going with this! Then he says, "I actually drove to your parents house and asked them if I could marry you.. and I was going to do it later in the summer, but I cannot wait another minute!" So there, he gets down on one knee, and pulls out a SOCK from inside his pants! Inside the sock is a ring box holding my beautiful ring. I immediately started crying after saying the easiest YES of my life! "
