Katie and David

You could say that Katie Miller played her way into David Witter’s heart. The two first met on a basketball court at the Winter Park YMCA in 2007 and played a friendly game of “H-O-R-S-E.” “She can shoot the lights out, which, of course, as a guy, I found very attractive–and a bit intimidating,” David recalls. The two 33-year-old financial advisers (now co-owners of Financial Harvest Wealth Advisors) developed a friendship and bonded over their common interests and faith, all the while Katie was working up the courage to make her move. On New Year’s Eve in 2008—with the help of two glasses of wine—Katie told David how she felt about him and they shared their first kiss. Eight months later, he proposed to her on a private sunset cruise. The engagement couldn’t have come soon enough for Katie. “I said, ‘Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, are you serious? Yes!’ ” Inside, she says she was thinking, “Finally.”

Katie’s Most Memorable Moment: “As the organ music filled the sanctuary, the church doors swung open… Heart racing, I grabbed hold of my dad’s hand and whispered, ‘OK, I’m ready. This is it. We are really going to do this! I will never forget this moment for the rest of my life.
I love you, Dad.’ ”
