There goes the bride!
Cate Edwards, the daughter of disgraced politician John Edwards and the late Elizabeth Edwards, married college sweetheart, Dr. Trevor Upham, in Chapel Hill, NC on Saturday.
Cate, 29, beamed in a classic, strapless ivory gown with gathered detail at the hip; she wore her hair down and loose, accessorized with a pearl necklace and matching bracelet.
Although John Edwards walked his daughter down the aisle, the former Presidential candidate -- who fathered a child with mistress Rielle Hunter -- successfully avoided all cameras during the ceremony. Her 13-year-old sister, Emma Claire, was maid of honor, while their brother, Jack, 11, was a groomsman.
Cate and Upham, a surgical fellow in Washington, D.C., got engaged two weeks prior to Elizabeth Edward's Dec. 7, 2010 passing after a long battle with breast cancer.
"I feel so lucky to have shared that joy with her, to have had the time to leaf through bridal magazines together and talk about the wedding," Cate wrote in an article for Glamour magazine this month. "Even though I've had to plan the wedding without her, I feel blessed because, in her last weeks, she told me she was comforted to know I'd set forth on my own life path, with someone she loved and respected, and with whom she truly believed I would be happy."
