Meet beautiful Kate Pappas, aka Kate Beckerman is the wife of soccer player Kyle Beckerman. Her hubby of just a few months is the captain for Real Salt Lake club and he also plays for United States national team.
The couple met four years ago and it was hook, line, sinker for the duo from the get-go. Her hubby’s dreadlocks are easily spotted but Kate is the one to steal the cameras now.

Kate graduated in 2007 from Westminster College with a bachelor’s degree in communication and English, during her college years she was editor-in-chief of the Westminster college newspaper. According to their engagement photo-shoot, the adorable couple met a video shoot for the United Way of Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium in 2009. Kate was working the shoot and holding cue cards for Kyle. It was love at first sight. He asked for permission to call her later that day, and they’ve been together ever since.
The both are big outdoors fan and spend as much as they can outside. Kyle got down on one knee and popped the question on January 2012 while he and Kate were hiking to Ensign Peak –near their home –she obviously said yes and received a princess-cut, asscher-set center diamond surrounded by a halo of diamonds. They tied the knot at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in downtown Salt Lake City earlier this year. The had a “big fat Greek wedding,” celebration type style.
