Big News!

Happy Monday!

We're excited to announce a new blog series here at Calligraphy Katrina! As you may or may not know, our very own Katrina is engaged!

Tony Nguyen and Katrina Centeno
Every week, we'll be sharing Katrina's journey along the road to her wedding day. You'll get to see what she's planning for not just one wedding, but two! That's right, Katrina will be having one wedding here in Los Angeles and her second in the Philippines in 2015. For all you future brides out there, this is the perfect opportunity for you to relate because we all know that planning a wedding is not easy! For Katrina, working in the wedding industry can be quite exciting but hectic, now adding hers to the mix is going to be quite the roller coaster. So we hope you join us for the ride!

For today's first post, we're going to share the magical day when Tony proposed...

The gorgeous ring with blue sapphires!
Kat and Tony met on the 26th of December, 2006 with the intention to casually date.  By around Valentine's Day, 2007, they knew they wanted to commit to each other after a night drive to Palos Verdes.  They have been inseparable since.  Fast forward 7 years, on Valentine's Day 2014, Tony had the ultimate plan.  The night before, he made her a floral arrangement.  Valentine's Day started with brunch at Joan's on Third in West Los Angeles followed by a stroll around the Norton Simon Museum Pasadena.  Before dinner, Tony adamantly requested for Kat to wear a pair of Sapphire earrings he presented as a gift.  They dined at The Royce Restaurant in the Langham Hotel and went for a night drive to Palos Verdes.  On the same spot, at Abalone Beach, they started talking about the same things they did 7 years ago.  Tony finally said, "You know I love you, right?  Thank you for being so patient."  He then goes down one knee, and the rest is history!

Thanks for joining us on day one! Please stay tuned because Katrina has a lot to share with you all.
Countdown to the weddings:
