SOPHIA + TOM

DATE TO REMEMBER
Walking down the aisle to traditional Greek Orthodox chanting, Sophia Katos’ groom Tom Baum was overcome with emotion. “I’ll never forget his face,” she says. The actress wore a whimsical dress full of dramatic detail and spent the entire occasion by her husband’s side to ensure their memories of January 16, 2016 were created together. And after a night of dancing, they shared gelato under the stars.

LOVE STORY
Sophia and Tom met as teenagers when they were locked in a room together by friends at a party. After seven years as a couple, Tom masterminded a proposal which spanned a further two years. On special occasions, Sophia would receive engraved keys. These eventually opened a box containing the ring. During speeches at the reception, a final gold key was lowered from a hanging floral installation made by her aerospace engineering husband, who also built the photobooth backdrop out of a hedge from the family farm. “Our wedding was a reflection of our personalities and that’s what made it really special for us and our guests,” he says.
