They met while working the surgical trauma ICU together, and from there, they started their adventures. Cat and Zach have had many date and wine nights here in Cincinnati, traveled the globe together, got engaged in Paris, and got married in Mexico. Of everything I’ve loved about getting to know them, though (besides how sweet they both are and our shared love for travel), by far my favorite is that when they do something, they are in it together – they are always thinking of the other and making decisions with the other in mind. They’ve spent their time growing together. It’s a beautiful, unselfish love. The first month they were dating was the first year Cat had to celebrate her sister’s birthday since she’d passed. Zach sent her flowers “to Liz” just because he knew it would mean the world to Cat. That’s just one small sampling of the many stories I’ve heard about the two of them, and after getting to know them over the last year, I just know they are going to be so happy in their life together.
Photographing their wedding at Unico 2087 Hotel and Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico was like dream. Catherine and Zach have impeccable taste, and treating their guests to a good time while there was important to them. The picturesque, tropical landscape served as the relaxing spot for their 60-some guests, and not only was the resort absolutely perfect, I was treated like family. Their family and friends were so welcoming and loving, and the day of the wedding came and went like a breeze. It was a sweet, emotion-filled day with tears from everyone (including me) and it could not have been more perfect. Enjoy a peek into their day – Congrats C & Z!
