Katie and Mike tied the knot in one of Manhattan's trendiest neighborhoods with a bash bursting with urban character.
New York City played a compelling role in the couple’s love story: It’s where they met 10 years ago, so it was no question the nuptials would be held in the place where it all began.
On an unseasonably warm Sunday in October, Mike convinced Katie to take a stroll through Tompkins Square Park, a local gem just steps from their East Village, Manhattan apartment. An acoustic rendition of “Here Comes the Sun” hummed in the background via a fellow park-goer as Mike popped the question to Katie.

Katie said, “It sounds cheesy but all you really need is love.”
