This is us, out in Oklahoma City at a ballgame, not long ago. We'll be dressed much more formally soon.
Nov. 8, 2008.
Ceremony: St. Luke the Evangelist Church, Glenside, Pennsylvania.
Reception: Warrington Country Club, Warrington, Pennsylvania.
Dustin Hughes splits his time between the burgs of Broken Arrow and Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Katie Koch lives in West Chester Pennsylvania.
We got engaged on October 4, 2007 and are headed for a wedding on November 8, 2008. We're glad you came on this page, and stay tuned for more information as we get it.
How we met:
Dustin: Well, we met over the Internet, sort of. It wasn't a dating site -- instead a site for people who like to backpack, hike, and camp out. We got to chatting, and found we had a lot in common: for example, I liked the Dallas Cowboys, she didn't. In 2005, I thought the Cowboys would beat her beloved Philadelphia Eagles, and we bet a trip on it.
Turns out, I wound up in Philadelphia in Feb. 2006. We toured Gettysburg, Philadelphia, hiked on the Appalachian Trail.
Two years later, Katie came out to Oklahoma for vacation. One camping trip in the Wichita Mountains, and one well-timed thunderstorm, and we fell in love. It was inevitable. We were meant to be.
Katie makes me better. I can't wait to marry her.
