Duke Gardens Weddings

A gorgeous day in a beautiful location with great people. That pretty much sums up the vibe of Jordan and Zeke’s wedding at Duke Gardens earlier this month. Readers of the blog will recognise Jordan from her bridal photographs that I shot a few days before the wedding. She made such an elegant bride, and I think you’ll agree that her groom, Zeke, cut a pretty dapper figure too. Congrats to them both and best wishes for the future!

Big thanks to all the great people that collaborated to make the day such a success:

This truly was a gorgeous day in all senses of the word:  beautiful venues, fabulous weather, and lovely people - it truly had it all. Erin and I started the day with Kathleen & Michael at the Carolina Inn, where they were staying and where they would return for the reception later in the day. The Carolina Inn really was looking great with its Christmas décor and it has some great little places hidden away to provi ...

Regular visitors to my website will know I love working at Duke Gardens and it was such a treat to photograph Anh & David's wedding there a few weeks back. But rather than me tell you about it, here's Anh herself with a quick recap of how she found me and how the planning and the day itself  went down: "I am the kind of bride who puts a lot of time and effort into researching each and every vendor till I find a perfect match.
