People love to see pictures of beautiful weddings. Today’s real wedding certainly doesn’t fall short in that aspect. But what is it that truly makes a wedding beautiful? This couple has enviable style, gorgeous flowers, a breathtaking venue…and what we find the most inspiring is their story.
Kathryn and Campbell’s only priority in planning their wedding was to create as much time as possible to spend with their friends and family, and we love their creative solution: a destination wedding weekend over Christmas, allowing them to gather everyone together. Guests rented individual cabins at El Capitan Canyon, where they rented bikes, rode horses, and celebrated Christmas in a yurt.
Kathryn and Campbell happen to share an incredibly sweet story. Read on for more from the groom:
“We met in March of 2012 in Boston. We both worked for the same international travel company. Kathryn was cast in an internal human resources video, and I was working as a director for the video production company. We met when I was put on the assignment to shoot the video–Kathryn was luckily one of those interviews. The whole thing was pretty hilarious; we got to know each other in a conference room with a camera sitting between us! It’s kind of cool though, because I still have a hard drive with the footage of our first conversation. After the interview, my boss, who is a great friend of mine, saw the way I was acting after the interview and he said, “You’re going to marry that girl.” I was rolling my eyes a bit, but in the back of my head I was strangely okay with that scenario… it was very uncharacteristic of me.
I asked her on our first date a week later. I took her to an oyster bar in Boston, called “Neptune” in the North End. Toward the end of our meal, in another moment of foreshadowing, a lady who sat next to us at dinner asked us if she could use our phone. She proceeded to take a picture of us together, saying, “You’ll thank me for this 20 years from now when you’re married”. I guess we can safely say, we began the process of falling in love on our first date.”
