A Little Bit About the Bride & Groom

Chances are you know either Katie, or either Charlie…or if you’re lucky, both! For those of you who may not know one or the other, here’s a bit about us, told from the other’s perspective:

 

 

About Charlie Ferraro — by Katie Clark

Charlie and I met courtesy of a mutual friend and fellow dietitian, the dynamic Wendy Jo Peterson. Wendy Jo, who is from Texas and partial to Texans, described Charlie as “a quiet type” who “might be worth checking out.”

 

After a number of encounters where Charlie didn’t utter one word to me, he found himself left with no other option but to strike up a conversation at a concert at Winston’s in Ocean Beach. Afterwards, he asked me to go to dinner a few days later (but made me pick the place, Café Sevilla obviously — small plates, portion control).

 

When Charlie picked me up at my house for our first date, he asked me out to an event for a second date for the following night. I thought, “Well, that’s awfully presumptuous considering we haven’t even done the first date thing,” but I realized it was probably a good sign.

 

Our first date was a smashing success and our second wasn’t half-bad either. Since those first dates, Charlie and I have been pretty much inseparable. We have had wonderful opportunities to travel extensively (he says expensively), get to know each others families and to learn more about one another and our wildly different outtakes on life.

 

Charlie is an excellent listener, whereas I excel only at talking. He is as tolerant as I am impatient. He likes encased meat products, I favor vegetables. But at the end of the day, we see the big things the same way. And I am glad he finally saw things my way and that we are getting married!

 

 

About Katie Clark — by Charlie Ferraro

Upon arriving in San Diego, I set out to meet myself a young, poorly adjusted gold-digging chick with baggage. When that didn’t happen, my friend Larry from Oklahoma introduced me to his friend’s wife Wendy Jo, a notorious matchmaking dietitian with an impressive track record. Apparently Wendy Jo has married off five couples she personally introduced. Well, make that six.

 

It all started when Wendy Jo got into a heated discussion about religion and Texas vs. California housing prices with a friend of mine. Finding no one else to talk to, I struck up conversation with Katie. “Oh, you have a blog on dietary fiber? How riveting.”

 

One thing led to another and the next thing I know I was eating small plate tapas on our first date, waiting for the main course. The main course never came, but I had to keep the conversation going, since apparently I had invited her out already for the following night.

 

Since we met, Katie’s family (mainly her dad) has been joking with me to, “Run like hell.” I didn’t run, mainly because I don’t like exercise. But in reality, one of the things that continues to attract me to Katie is how comfortable she is truly being herself. Her beauty, intelligence, compassion, and love of family and our lives together are the big things that I have been looking for all of my life.
