Catherine wasn’t looking for love. She was a young ambitious summer associate a few weeks shy of finishing her summer job before heading back home to North Carolina, when she decided to take a chance and ask the handsome public defender Hayden if he would be a “tour guide” and show her around San Francisco. Sparks flew during their city adventure and they knew their connection was special. Despite only dating for a few weeks, they continued their relationship long distance. Catherine eventually returned to the San Francisco Bay Area and they have enjoyed exploring the area and making a life together.
For their wedding, they chose to get married at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers, set in the heart of the city in Golden Gate Park. Catherine’s father and Hayden’s sister officiated the outdoor ceremony while their close friends and family, as well as many park passerby’s, watched them become husband and wife. After the ceremony, they invited their guests into the greenhouses for cocktails, appetizers and toasts.
