Love Takes Flight: Katie and Amol’s Whimsical Wisconsin Wedding
In the charming town of Menasha, Wisconsin, physicians Katie and Amol Kamat embarked on a journey of love that culminated in a whimsical wedding at the Kasper family home. With an intimate setting, their wedding was a celebration of love, friendship, and the extraordinary moments that bind two souls. Katie and Amol’s story began as medical students competing for coveted spots at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth. What started as a professional connection blossomed into a deep friendship, and eventually, a romance. Faced with the prospect of geographical separation, they made a pact to stay together, navigating the challenges of long-distance love. Amol’s proposal unfolded on the S.S. Badger, a ship crossing Lake Michigan. Amidst the waves, he popped the question, solidifying their commitment before Katie’s departure to Japan. Determined to be close, they married in September 2018, marking the beginning of their shared life. The couple wisely enlisted the help of a wedding consultant, a decision they wholeheartedly recommend. With the Kasper home in Menasha as both the wedding and reception venue, the planning process was a heartfelt collaboration. Katie’s roots in the neighboring city of Neenah made the locale even more special.
