Our Wedding will be at St. Charles Church in Kansas City, Missouri. We chose St. Charles for the rich history it holds with Adam’s family. Adam’s maternal grandparents were charter members of the parish and were there to celebrate the first mass back in 1947. Adam’s mother, Margaret, attended the attached elementary school and was married to Adam’s father, Gary Pickett, at St. Charles in 1970. Growing up Adam would attend mass at St. Charles whenever his family was in town visiting their grandparents.
Our Wedding mass celebration will be officiated by Father Pat Behm. Katie and Father Pat were in grade school and high school together just a couple years apart. Father Pat is a very down to earth, kindhearted man. Katie and Father Pat’s families have a long history as their grandparents were long-time neighbors and friends. Katie’s grandparents, Howard and Elaine Robel, hold a very special place in her heart. Since they are no longer with us, it is very special to her and her family to have someone her grandparents knew officiate the wedding ceremony.
