Friends Know Best
Catrina, a Sr. Research Compliance Specialist at UTHealth, and Cory, a professional baseball player, had mutual high school friends but their paths never crossed. When they met at one of their friend’s birthday party, they knew they were meant to be together. Cory’s a left-handed pitcher and needed a right-handed. They got engaged nine months later at the museum.
Catrina’s mother suggested Safari Texas Ranch in Richmond, TX for the ceremony and Catrina and Cory fell in love with the Rose Chapel on the property. Catrina walked down the aisle in a beautiful trumpet gown by Matthew Christopher. The six tier, three-flavor cake was topped with original art of their new family, bride, groom and dogs, and was created by Gwen Garba of the Concarta Design Studio in Los Angeles, CA. In place of the traditional guestbook, ten of their favorite albums were signed; they are now framed and hanging on a wall in their home. They honeymooned at Matachica Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize.
