Katie (who, yes, definitely resembles Elisabeth Shue) and Chris are yet another internet dating success story. They live in Boston but married at Chris’ parents’ summer community on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. When I met Chris’ mom a few weeks before the wedding to tour Bald Peak, she explained at the first meeting of the parents that both sets were stunned that neither Katie nor Chris had been scooped up because they are both so wonderful, and so wonderful together. Exactly. It was just that matter of that thing called time for them to find one another. And everyone would agree with these happy parents, their children certainly found the right match in each other.
Their wedding day was an ideal September Saturday, with bright blue skies and a pretty breeze keeping things cool but not too cold.
Katie arrived to the ceremony in a vintage Rolls Royce.
After the ceremony, we boarded a boat to head to the reception.
Their elegant reception design featured pretty pink and soft white flowers.
Night fell quickly as guests dined.
The evening ended with sparklers and an impressive fireworks display.
And the newlyweds bid everyone adieu as they headed off in a golf cart.
Thank you, again, Katie and Chris! Shyla and I had a lovely day documenting your beautiful I Do’s and wish you both a blissful trip to Bali and in life!
