Katherine Cain + George Stevens

September 23, 2017

Wolfeboro, New Hampshire

Katherine and George took a weekend trip to Burlington, VT, accompanied by Shea, Katherine’s English springer spaniel. After exploring the town, they took a walk along the shore of Lake Champlain, where George proposed. The first thing I did was ask Shea what he thought!” Katherine exclaims (fortunately, he didn’t have any objections).

George grew up on Lake Winnipesaukee, and he and Katherine were eager to introduce the lake to family and friends. “It’s his favorite spot in the world,” says Katherine, “and a place I’ve grown to love as well.”

Wedding planner Amy Piper found a perfect property for their reception, right on the lake. The couple and their families took over the main cottage and an adjoining cabin for the weekend. Their afternoon wedding went off according to plan; even Shea, wearing a blue bow tie, joined the ceremony. He also joined Katherine and George for a scenic boat ride to the reception, where everyone enjoyed dinner and dancing by the water. Afterwards, the couple and their guests gathered around a bonfire to celebrate under the stars. “It was a fun day that flew by,” says Katherine.
