happily ever after!

K&K pizza-making

After 9 1/2 years of going steady, we are ready to make it official! We are so excited to welcome our nearest and dearest to Katie’s home turf of Sonoma County this summer to celebrate our union and throw an unforgettable party – start getting excited NOW!

We first met in 1998 living in the same dormitory at UC Berkeley, and rekindled our friendship in 2002 shortly after Kurtis graduated with his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. A year or so of friendly lunch dates followed while Katie finished her studies and Kurtis worked as an engineer at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. After Katie earned her B.A. in Integrative Biology and was literally getting her feet wet in the Sonoma County wine industry, Kurtis rode his motorbike north for a visit, and Katie shared the beauty of the west county with him on a sunset ride. awwwwww….

It was the beginning of the best adventure of our lives: camping, climbing, traveling, hang gliding and spending time with our growing pool of awesome friends and the families we were destined to join – yea!!

With our cats Cotswold and Trudy, we are making our home in Sonoma County, where Katie puts in long harvest hours as the Assistant Winemaker at De Loach Vineyards and Kurtis slaves away as a solutions sales engineer for an enterprise software firm. Please come visit us anytime, and often!
