cathi & i worked at silver bay together one summer. she worked in the hiking/nature center & i think that summer i.... can't remember what job i had. i was so excited when she asked me to shoot her wedding because i remembered her as a beautiful, gracious, kind person with a laid back personality & all those qualities make an awesome bride. and she was.
her sweet , kind & handsome husband, nev, is from south africa, so his family & friends came from afar & were a delight to be around.
i love the story of how they met. cath was meeting a friend at a restaurant but is notoriously late. so her friend striked up a conversation with the two guys at the table next to her. they were deep into conversation when she arrived so they just scooted the tables together & ate as four instead of two. nev was one of the guys. how sweet is that?! man, being late seemed to pay off!!!
they were married on the dock with the lake & mountains behind them. the wind was pretty strong & kept playing with her veil, but it was a fabulous, intimate ceremony. bruce, the chaplan did a fantastic job & several of their family/friends performed songs that were so emotional!
so on to the pictures!
cathi is an aunt. if i had to label her, that title would be in the top 5, amazing aunt. you can tell how much she cherishes them & they cherish her. they surrounded her the entire day, it was adorable. here's her squad helping her get dressed.
