Katherine wore a lacy, mermaid-shaped gown from Panache Bridal Beverly Hills with a matching cathedral lace veil.

The couple had a traditional Catholic ceremony.

A single white rose topped every place setting.

Each stack of the four-layer cake featured a different flavor.

Guests dined under the stars on prime beef and pan-seared sea bass.

The Couple
While at dinner on St. Patrick’s Day in 2011, Mark noticed Katherine’s glowing smile and worked up the courage to ask her on a date. By summer 2012, he was on one knee, proposing at The St. Regis in Kauai.

The Details
Katherine wanted the Spanish-style dwellings to drip with romance, so she adorned the space with vessels of floating candles and twinkling lights. Romance certainly did fill the room: One couple got engaged during the wedding, and another welcomed a baby nine months later.

The Party
The newlyweds’ first dance was to Coldplay’s “Green Eyes,” the song Mark played for Katherine on guitar when they first started dating.
