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.

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.
