Like so many love stories, Meredith and Kathleen’s didn’t start with love at all. After an introduction by a mutual friend, these two spent the first part of their relationship as friends. Meredith was actually in a relationship at the time of their introduction so the early days were strictly platonic, and it wasn’t until several years later, when they both happened to be single that they decided to give love a try.
Their first date was the cliche dinner and a movie. Dinner was chinese where they got fortune cookies. Meredith’s said “tonight will be a night for love and affection” and Kathleen’s said “a special relationship will become permanent.” The rest has been history.
When Meredith what makes her and Kathleen work she said “We have lots in common, sports and sense of honor, love for our family and getting out and enjoying life. In literally every other way we are polar opposites. Yes we pick on each other all the time for it. She’s logical and practical I’m emotional, silly and creative. She’s amazing with math and directions. I still add on my fingers and couldn’t find my way out of a paper bag. It’s actually what makes us a great couple. I see a fun project for the house and write down and draw out how I want it to look and she gets out the nails and the hammer and together we make it happen. We are a really great team that way.” Its been this ying and yang that has kept things fun and exciting over the years.
Meredith and Kathleen, or MerKat, as they are lovingly referred to collectively by their friends, were married in the sweetest ceremony in High Point, NC. Surrounded by their closest friends and family the wed in a love wins, lavender and red ceremony and danced the night away to lots of Justin Bieber (Meredith’s favorite artist).
