COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Kathryn and Greg


We always love to hear the fun and unique stories behind how our Lighthouse couples met (which probably explains why our Couple's Spotlight feature is one of our faves), and this next featured couple is no exception.

We couldn't stop smiling when we got the photos in our inbox from this picture perfect pair who, in just a few short weeks, will be sharing their vows and tying the knot here at The Lighthouse! Below, Kathryn shares the story of how she met Greg and how he proposed. Oh, and did we mention the sweet sentiments she shares about our venue? Stop Kathryn, you're making us blush! ;)

1) How did you and Greg meet?

(By Kathryn)

We initially met online.  After exchanging a few messages, I learned that Greg was a frequent gym-goer.  Unbeknownst to either of us, we had been working out at the same gym for over a year.  One day shortly after meeting online, I was at the gym and I happened to see Greg and recognized him from his online profile photo, so I introduced myself.  We made arrangements to go out on our first date that next weekend and the rest is history. 

2) What's the proposal story? 

Greg proposed to me while we were on vacation in Hawaii.  We went to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner the first night were there.  Afterwards, we walked out on the beach.  Greg said he had something he wanted to read me.  He began to read me a poem he wrote.  He is known for writing me funny quirky poems, so I just thought it was another one of his poems.  As the poem progressed, I realized this was something much more and it concluded with him down on one knee asking me to be his wife. 

3) What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day? 

We had looked at a few wedding venues, but nothing felt right. My caterer recommended that I check out the Lighthouse. Marie was able to set Greg and I up with a tour right away. As soon as we saw The Lighthouse, we knew it was for us. The venue is so beautiful and charming. We love everything - the succulents, large lawns (perfect for our lawn games!), palm trees, modern banquet room, the inn upstairs, and of course the view of the marina and surrounding waters. The customer service from day one has been amazing!

4) What are you most looking forward to about your wedding? 

Celebrating with all of our loved ones from near and far!

Aside from the beauty of our property here at The Lighthouse, we always strive for great customer service and are so happy to hear from our clients when our hard work comes through! Thanks so much, Kathryn and Greg - we cannot wait to see how you two transform our space and all the amazingness you have up your sleeves for next month!
