Katie and Colman met in August 2005, during training for Goldman Sachs's First Year Analyst Program. Over 700 people attended, but Colman ended up sitting next to Katie. He offered her some candy (tempting her sweet tooth), and the rest is history.
Katie, a native of Philadelphia's suburbs, and Colman, a Londoner who attended boarding school in the states, chose Long Beach Island, in New Jersey, for their wedding location. Katie's family vacationed there during her childhood, and Colman came to love it while spending summer weekends there with her.
