Thank you to Kate's Uncle Stewart Nowlin of Stu Nowlin Imaging for these wonderful pictures. He is based in Kansas but his card says that he will go on location anywhere. I imagine he's photographed some interesting weddings.
It was important that their ceremony be inclusive and honoring of their families and they brought to me an expression from Mark's grandmother that I had never heard before:, 'Cut the apron strings but leave the kitchen door open.'
On the side of the Horace Williams House is a lovely huge old bell. At the end of the ceremony they recessed to the bell and rang in their marriage there.
They're a playful couple with delightful senses of humor. On the wedding day, they were transmitting it live to Australia and California via MarryMeLive.com. While all the connections were being set up they had lots of on camera fun moments. It was a great way for everyone to enjoy their spirit and their day.
Guglhopf Bakery, that wonderful German bakery in Durham, baked their beautiful cake and they decorated it themselves with seasonal flowers.
