It was Game, Set, Match for Katy and Julian. The pair met playing tennis at the Field Club of Greenwich. Katy’s sister Ashley had met Julian first and told her there was a very cute tennis pro that she needed to meet. Her initial reaction was an eye roll, but she acquiesced and took a few lessons. The rest is history. Sisters always know best.
The couple dated for a year and a half before Julian proposed while on vacation in Nantucket. Katy grew up going to the island so it has always been a special place to her, as well as for as for the couple as it was one of their first trips together. The proposal happened while out for a walk on Sconset Bluff. The celebration continued into the evening with drinks and dinner at The Wauwinet with friends and family.
The wedding weekend kicked off with a pickleball tournament hosted by the bride and groom and their families. Pastor Leo Curry officiated the ceremony at First Church of Round Hill in Greenwich and the reception followed at the Field Club—naturally. It was an international affair with guests traveling from Ireland, Germany, England and all over the U.S. to be there.
“Having all of our loved ones together in one room was a dream…people traveled from Ireland, Germany, England, and all over the US to be there! We had a lot of Irish and Cuban guests from our two families and they brought incredible energy,” Katy recalls. “I loved dancing to Nuclassica, first seeing the club set up and our vision come to life and all of the beautiful flowers from Greenwich Orchids. I’ve never seen the Field Club look so stunning.”
The bride, daughter of William and Mayling McCormick of Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich Academy and Duke University. Katy works for Citibank in New York.
The groom, son of Chris Bradley and Barbara Brennan of Dublin, Ireland graduated from Glenstal Abbey and the University of North Florida. Julian is a former professional tennis player and is now enrolled in Dental School at Trinity College Dublin.
The newlyweds took a mini-moon to Provence and will honeymoon in December with skiing in Switzerland and France before returning home to Greenwich (and Dublin while Julian finishes school).
