SCENE | The Furnarys are wed in Stowe

FurnarysMr. and Mrs. Timothy P. Furnary, minutes after marrying Saturday afternoon in Stowe, Vt.

A wonderful pair of very close friends exchanged vows to one another on a meadow just below Mount Mansfield last Saturday afternoon.

Lindsey Wetmiller was wed to Timothy Furnary by the Rev. Susan Cooke Kittredge in a lovely ceremony at Topnotch Resort in Stowe, Vt. Mrs. F. and I were both in the wedding party and I had the privilege of standing up as Tim’s best man.

Countless Laurentians were in attendance and another member of the wedding party who went to St. Lawrence had the good sense to hang one of our scarlet-and-brown flags above the bar. We used another, larger flag that belongs to me, for the St. Lawrence magazine photo. My flag has been present at nearly a dozen Laurentian weddings and I hope it gets use at dozens more.

Stowe was chosen because the bride grew up in Vermont and the groom learned to ski in the Green Mountain state.

The whole weekend, though — from the Friday welcome reception thrown Friday night by the groom’s parents at the Stowe Mountain Lodge, to the fantastic groomsmen’s lunch we had at Norma’s, Topnotch’s swell restaurant, to the morning-after brunch at the iconic Shed restaurant — was a hoot. We had a terrific time.

A great many thanks to Mark and Melody Wetmiller, parents of the bride, for being such gracious hosts.

The Furnarys are honeymooning in Italy, visiting Rome and the Amalfi coast among other destinations. They’ll reside in New York.

Here’s a gallery, with thanks to contributor Will Briganti for manning my lense during and just after the ceremony.
