Join us as we journey through the enchanting celebration of Katie and Drake’s love, set against the backdrop of a crisp day for this fall wedding at The Austin. Every detail of their wedding reflects not only their beautiful story but also the deep connection they share. As you step into their world, you’ll be greeted by the rich colors of the maroon bridesmaid dresses, perfectly complemented by delicate light florals that adorn every corner of the venue.


WEDDING DATE: October 8, 2022

HOW THEY MET: Katie was in search for a date to her sorority party when a mutual friend suggested Drake. The two connected on Instagram and officially met at a game-day tailgate a few days later.

THE PROPOSAL: Drake treated Katie to a day filled with all of her favorite Kansas City things to do and then dropped to one knee at a bench in front of Union Station as friends and family watched the proposal from the skywalk.

A SPECIAL TOUCH: The flowers in Katie’s dress and the orchids in her floral arrangements were a representation and ode to her Hawaiian heritage.
