About Us

In the beginning

Daniel and Kathie met in 2013 while they were living in the Bay Area doing typical San Francisco things. Daniel was starting his first company and Kathie was pursuing a graduate degree in the Department of Architecture at UC Berkeley. She asked him out first, but he was too busy. Fortunately for both of them, Kathie did not take no for an answer.

“When is a door not a door?”

“When it’s ajar!” 

— Daniel and Kathie’s first recorded words to each other



Over the next couple years, they changed jobs a couple times and moved around, from San Francisco to Austin to L.A. and finally, to Seattle, WA.

Say yes!! Say yes!!

On a chilly northwestern January morning in Port Angeles, WA, Daniel got down on one knee in front of a waterfall. It was a beautiful and understated location with moss adorned trees and slippery rocks. Charlie the Dog was present for the glorious moment and definitely didn’t grasp the magnitude of the occasion.



Kathie said Yes and the rest will go down in history.
