Wedding Ceremony: The King's Daughters Inn, Durham, NC
Formals: Duke University, Durham, NC
Reception: West End Wine Bar, Durham, NC

Candis was one of the first brides to contact me after we moved down from Indianapolis last autumn, so I had been looking forward to her and Terrell's wedding for quite a while. The location for the ceremony and dinner was The King's Daughters Inn, which is a beautiful 1920's home located right next door to Duke's East Campus. When I went there to scout out the location I was immediately struck by how beautiful the light was in the house and, with the weather on the day behaving itself, we were really lucky to get some lovely backlighting during the wedding ceremony itself, which gave a lovely depth to the images. From there, we made a quick trip over to Duke, to take some pictures of the wedding party and the couple themselves.

After heading back to the Inn for dinner, we made our way over to the West End Wine Bar, for the reception. We got there just as the sun was going down, so we took a quick 5 minutes to take some more pictures of the happy couple using the light of the setting sun against the lovely red brick of the old warehouses in downtown Durham. The reception venue itself was really cool and we got some great pictures of people from all generations getting into the swing of things as the DJ span the tunes.

Terrell and Candis were a lovely couple to work with; relaxed and enjoying the moment and each other from start to finish. I wish them all the best for a long and happy future together.

Here are the images from their day:
