Lewes Beach Wedding of Katie & Gareth| Lewes Yacht Club – Lewes, DE

Katie & Gareth met in middle school… yes middle school! They became friends in high school and started dating after college and the proposal happened over a cup of coffee. Their wedding at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and reception at the Lewes Yacht Club was elegant and minimalistic with an emphasis on the family and friends who gathered with them for the day. Enjoy…

Apparently there’s a southern tradition of burying a bottle of bourbon (upside down) at your venue prior to your wedding day to ward off bad weather. With hurricane Dorian looming, Katie & Gareth figured it was worth a shot. They were rewarded with a gorgeous wedding day… and were even able to locate the bottle of Booker’s they had buried in the sand near Lewes Yacht Club!⁠⠀
