With it being almost Valentine’s Day and all, this news is all the more apropos. Congrats to Katie Couric, who announced that she and fiancée John Molner will be tying the knot at her Hamptons home early this summer. Yay for them!
The understated, family-only affair will be held at her East Hampton shingle-style cottage, she has said. Katie and her gentleman friend of the past two years got engaged during Labor Day weekend via a romantic beach proposal.
Katie, who shot to superstardom in the late 1980s on the “Today” show, is one of the absolute best celebrities on the red carpet. Since she’s a journalist, she knows exactly what is needed (no confusion about where to look on the step and repeat) and goes out of her way to make sure that everyone who is working gets the shot. Not only is she patient and VERY giving, she also makes sure that whomever is posing with her knows what to do–and instructs in a very gracious manner.
She’s also doll to work with on-camera and behind the scenes. She’s got a definite vision but she’s incredibly collaborative and supportive of others. What a gem! And I’m thrilled that she’s found love and peace.
