Here are a few words from Catherine on how they met!
We met playing trumpet in our company’s music room. Since we are both trumpet players we decided to start playing duets together regularly. Our friendship grew out of that and eventually into something more.
The engagement: Catherine went to Hawaii on a last minute work trip in May of 2016, which left Christopher alone in Madison for two weeks. This gave him the perfect opportunity to buy a ring. He then tricked Catherine into planning her own engagement by having her plan his birthday party. They started the day with a round of golf, then parted ways to get ready for their fancy dinner with friends. Once everyone had arrived at the restaurant, Christopher stood up and gave a speech. At the end of it, he got down on one knee and asked Catherine if she would do him the honor of marrying him. She said she would.
