The last person Katrina expected to meet at her friend’s 70's-themed birthday party was her future husband. She actually approached him to talk business, not pleasure. Reggie was the sexy DJ spinning tunes across the room, and Katrina was in search of good entertainment for her sister’s upcoming wedding. She asked him for his business card and then walked off.

One evening, after seeing a theater show with her parents, Katrina was riding up Peachtree Street and Reggie sent her a text message that said to pull over wherever she was and wait for him. She quickly told her father to stop ahead. Reggie pulled up in a brand new Porsche Turbo and proposed to Katrina on bended knee right there beneath the streets lights in midtown Atlanta. Onlookers cheered for the happy couple and her mother cried tears of joy. Wedding plans soon followed, and now the happy couple eagerly anticipate their big
Help us wish Katrina and Reggie the very best on their wedding day. Can you feel the love?
