Massachusetts Urban Engagement Session: Kate & Ayn
Kate & Ayn first met at a Bikram yoga class, keeping in touch through mutual friends. They developed a crush, and their friends took the initiative to push them towards making a first move.
Ayn proposed to Kate on the floor of their kitchen where they’d constructed a winter picnic to celebrate their three-year anniversary and upcoming Valentine’s Day. Along with the ring, Ayn gave Kate a carabiner to attach the ring when she took it off at the beach or gym!
Planning a wedding has been like planning the biggest party of Kate and Ayn’s lives. They get so excited thinking about having everyone they love in one place, and making a long weekend of it. They can’t wait to refer to each other as “my wife!”
To other same-sex couples, Kate and Ayn emphasize that there are no rules. They advise, “choose which traditions appeal to you and leave out the ones that don’t,” adding, “you also might find that there are people in your life with valuable skills and a willingness to help.”
