Covid Update

We would absolutely love each of you to be with us on our special day. Nevertheless, we completely and whole-heartedly understand if you feel uncomfortable attending. To that end, we have arranged for our wedding to be live-streamed for everyone unable to attend who would like to watch the ceremony from the comfort of their home. The live-stream link will be provided below.

If you do choose to join us, we want to ensure you that we are doing our best to provide a safe event. All event staff will wear masks and gloves and will sanitize the venue (in high contact areas especially) throughout the event. We also ask that guests wear masks whenever possible, and will have masks and hand sanitizers readily available. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Story


How They Met

During their first year at UF law, Katarina & Ted knew each other by name alone. The first real conversation they ever had was the following fall semester about Trump being elected president. As you may know, they have wildly different views on the subject, so what happened several months later was unexpected.

When They Started Dating

Finding themselves working as teaching assistants to the same professor and with virtually identical schedules that second semester, Katarina & Ted found themselves spending more and more time together. Katarina went home for winter break, and on New Year’s Eve, Ted bought a one-way ticket up to Northern Virginia to come visit Katarina and make the 12-hour drive back to Gainesville with her for the final semester of law school. They’ve been together ever since.

How He Proposed

Ted joined Katarina’s family at the family reunion in Ormond Beach, Florida. They took their puppy to see the ocean for the first time. While Katarina was laughing at Cooper attempting to eat sand, Ted got down on one knee and said “Cooper hang on a second, I have to ask your mom a question.” And she said yes!


This is an adult only event and please contact us if you have any questions about that.
