Katherine Alma Stech of Duluth and Adam Michael Ferek of Chicago celebrated their marriage on Sunday, September 3, 2017, at Bayfront Park along Lake Superior. The bride is the daughter of Anita and Harlan Stech of Duluth. The groom is the son of Gail and Daniel Ferek of Chicago.
The ceremony was officiated by Jay Reilly, a family friend, on a sun-soaked, 80-degree day. They told their guests, who came from Seattle, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Washington, D.C., and beyond, that the weather is always like that in Duluth.
The bride graduated from Duluth East High School in 2002 and from Syracuse University in 2005 with a degree in print journalism. Once a proud intern at the Duluth News Tribune, she now works as a bankruptcy reporter for The Wall Street Journal.
The groom graduated from Marist High School in 2004 and the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2008. He is a C-17 pilot at McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey and was recently promoted to the rank of Major.
The couple resides in Philadelphia.
