I will probably get the details wrong, but Katharine and Nic’s courtship is a great love story. The short short version: Nic is from South Africa and met Katharine briefly in Cambridge, Mass. while competing in the Head Of The Charles Regatta. Nic was so taken by Katherine that he wrote her a love letter from South Africa when he returned. Katharine was flattered but wrote back saying that she did not think it could work due to the distance, but that anything was possible – and the rest is history! What a great lesson in both going after what you want in life and being open minded to all possibilities.
The ceremony was held at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Stowe, Vermont. Katharine and Nic were surprised with serenade of Vuvuzelas upon their exit from the church.
After the ceremony, we did some portraits in downtown Stowe before heading up to the reception at Edson Hill Manor.
The reception started off with a lovely two hour “cocktail hour” complete with a raw bar. If I am invited to a wedding as a guest, I can generally be found at the raw bar until my wife pulls me away. In this case since I was hired to photograph, I took some photos of the oysters before helping myself to a few plates.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances, Nic’s parents were unable to attend the wedding. I always try to get a collection of images that will make everyone that was at the wedding feel like they are re-living the experience. I hope that Nic’s parents will be able to experience something of the wedding day when they see these.
