2014 was an absolutely fantastic year in which I got to document the weddings of some fabulous couples whom I all now call good friends. And so it was extremely fitting to round out the season on a real high with the gorgeous wedding of Rachel and Kevin at Duke Chapel and Prestonwood Country Club. Falling as it did on the Saturday before Christmas, the whole event was full of festive cheer that was as contagious as it was colourful. Duke Chapel itself was beautifully decorated with red poinsettias which complemented the red and black palette chosen by Rachel for the bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s waistcoats.

The highlight of the reception for me was the bride and groom’s first dance, which was brilliantly choreographed by Rachel. Prestonwood Country Club was the venue and it, too, was decked out with seasonal decorations that made for a great backdrop for the photos.

Big thanks to all the vendors listed above for making it such a lovely event to photograph. And, of course, my heartfelt thanks and best wishes for a long and happy future together to Rachel and Kevin.

Have a great 2015 everyone!

Duke Chapel weddings are always a pleasure to shoot and Lara and Juice's big day was certainly no exception! It started with Lara getting ready in a beautiful suite at the Washington Duke Inn and ended with her riding the mechanical bull at Shooters! Along the way, we also stopped by Duke Chapel for the ceremony and The Cotton Room for the reception. Suffice to say, it was a pretty amazing day! Lara and Juice planned their wedding from NYC and were ably assisted on the day by Casey at Events by La Fête. Huge thanks to Casey and her team for all her help making the day run smoothly.

If you stop by my blog regularly, you might be familiar with Sara from her Duke Chapel bridal photography session, which I posted a few weeks back.
