For Katherine Garner Catalano and John Gregory Carroll, known as Greg, sometimes business and pleasure do mix. The two first met while working at a clothing trade show in Atlanta. Work would bring them back to the show many times to reunite, but New York City would be the place for their first date, at Katherine’s favorite restaurant, Fig & Olive. Katherine and Greg had a long-distance relationship for two years, until she relocated for a new job, new home and new puppy in Greg’s hometown. After four years of dating, on a quiet evening before heading out to dinner, Greg proposed.
They made it official at Rye Presbyterian Church, where the Reverend Daniel H. Love officiated at the ceremony, which was followed by a reception at the American Yacht Club in Rye.
The bride, daughter of Ann Croll of Greenwich and Richard Catalano of Land O’ Lakes, Florida, graduated from Greenwich Academy and St. Lawrence University. Katherine is the manager and buyer for Keys Country Boutique.
The groom, son of Thomas and Jeannie Carroll of Tampa, Florida, graduated from Jesuit High School and Florida State University. Greg is the vice president of sales for the Carroll Apparel Group in Tampa.
Before jetting off on their honeymoon to Paris, the newlyweds stopped by Fig & Olive to have dinner at the same table they sat at on their first date. The Carroll’s call Tampa home
