Where are they now?
Couple of the Year: Katherine and Dimitri 2006

Katherine and Dimitri's engagement photos were shot in Napa Valley.

Katherine and Dimitri were married in October 2005 in San Francisco. Of the 360 invited guests 315 attended this big Russian wedding. Today Dimitri is continuing his job as a teacher and wrestling coach, while Katherine will go back to school for her nursing degree.

Katherine loves event planning. As soon as the couple got engaged she began booking event professionals. She did all the planning herself. While she had a specific theme in mind, she took advantage of the creativity and experience of the professionals. Each month she confirmed all the details with the professionals via email. On the day of the wedding each event professional and wedding party member had an exact timeline of the day's events. Dimitri helped his fianc├ęe by taking the groomsmen under his wings.

What would they have done different?

Katherine recommends that the bride and groom discuss the budget details with their parents. In retrospect she might have invited only those friends, with whom she had been in touch  for the past two years. One small mishap occurred. The Conservatory of Flowers, which they had chosen as the background for their formal portraits, was in the process of replanting their flowers at the time of the photo shoot, so they had to find a different location.

Everything else went perfectly. Katherine had planned the wedding so well that she could enjoy it to the fullest.
