I love that every couple’s love story has a unique and interesting twist. For Kate and Randy, it was distance.
Katelyn and Randy met through Match.com while Katelyn was working in Omaha, Nebraska and Randy was posted in Tanzania. After several patient messages spaced across many time zones, a Skype date was arranged on Valentine’s Day 2016, and messages and Skype meet ups became more commonplace over the next year.
Katelyn and Randy were rushing to prepare themselves for their upcoming move to Nashville. Katelyn was busy completing exams and projects for work while simultaneously readying herself for her trip to Australia that was three years in the making. Randy was preparing for final exams at UNO and applying for colleges in Tennessee. However, they did find a quiet night to dress up and sneak off to see “The Phantom of the Opera” live at the Orpheum theater in late November 2018.
As Kate and Randy exclaimed, “The show was fantastic! There was much to discuss after the show.”
Favorite moments of the musical were sang aloud and the couple discussed their plans of what would come of their new lives in Nashville as they went to once again view the Christmas lights sprinkled around downtown Omaha. Despite the bitter cold, they braved a quick stroll through the twinkling string light decorated Turner Park at Midtown Crossing. One lap through and just before teeth were chattering, Randy found himself on one knee, ring in hand. She said “ABSOLUTELY.”
I loved getting to know these two better over photographs and motorcycle rides. You heard that right! When these two aren’t busy planning their wedding, they enjoy hanging out with their 15 year old pup, Lady, and riding their Harley!
I seriously enjoy these Long Hunter views! If you are planning to get married in Nashville and need a photographer, I am your gal! <3
