Adam and Katina met 24 years ago at a Muscular Dystrophy Summer Camp in Michigan. They became friends and through many years and many adventures, their friendship turned into love. Both avid hikers they traveled to Sedona and while hiking around the popular Bell Rock (and getting a bit lost) Katina made a joke about the two of them being "Team Tortoise". The nickname stuck and Adam not only designed a Team Tortoise patch for their hiking bags, he took it one step further and contacted a company to create a stuffed animal (Sheldon the Tortoise) from his illustration. He then used Sheldon to propose to Katina while sitting on a bench overlooking La Jolla Beach. Team Tortoise was definitely apparent throughout their reception <3
They married 24 years to the date that they met at the beautiful Sky Ranch Lodge in Sedona, AZ. They were surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends that stuck around until the final dance. It was eccentric, beautiful, non traditional and absolutely perfect. Thank you to Adam and Katina for asking me to document your amazing day. I wish you many, many years of happiness filled with Sedona hikes, board games and awesome brews!!
