Dave and Katie came from a long line of Depauw alum and the University meant a lot not only to both of their families, but also to their relationship. They met there and spent many nights at the best local bars and eats, so it only made since to tie the knot in Meharry Hall on campus. For this couple, their love was bigger than DePauw’s rivalry to Wabash College.
Surrounded by memories, the couple invited all their college friends back to their alma mater to celebrate - with a few extra surprise appearances. Their favorite bartender from the college watering hole, The Fluttering Duck, was their celebrity bartender for the evening. Although it was complete happenstance, it just reinforced everything was meant to be! Those late night dancing guests were then fueled by DePauw’s famed late snack snack of Marvin’s GCB (aka garlic cheeseburgers).
If there is anything this couple can teach all the other brides and grooms out there, it’s to keep the humor alive, remember where you came from, look forward to where you're going and to always root for your alma mater!
