Cupid shot his arrow—OkCupid, that is—and brought Kathryn and Timothy Lopas together. Kathryn was impressed by Timothy’s ideal sense of organizational skills and plan-ahead attitude and messaged him on the app. They eventually found out both were set to attend the New York Road Runner’s race and met that evening for drinks at Lillie’s Victorian in Times Square, where their love story began. Three years later, Timothy bent down in what Kathryn described as, “perfect, military precision” and proposed.
Kathryn and Timothy were married by the Rev. Douglas McArthur at Ma Maison in Dripping Springs, Texas, where Timothy grew up. They were set to say their “I do’s” outdoors, but due to predicted rain, the ceremony was moved indoors. Leading up to vows, it remained sunny, and Kathryn, dismayed at the situation, thought, “Please rain.” Shortly after, during the homily, a crack of thunder boomed and a storm erupted, to the bride’s delight.
Kathryn is the daughter of Randall and Elizabeth Outlaw of Stamford. She graduated from Westhill High School and Georgetown University. She works for Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York City. Timothy is the son of Terry and Marsha Lopas of Waco, Texas. He graduated from Midway High School in Waco and Texas A&M University. He works for PricewaterhouseCoopers in New York City. The couple honeymooned in New Zealand and currently reside in New York City.
