Cotton Room Weddings Duke Chapel Weddings Duke Gardens Weddings

Wedding season is in full swing and it’s been super busy around these parts, but I’m coming up for air with a quick blog post from Hannah and Andrew’s beautiful spring wedding which took place at Duke Chapel and The Cotton Room just up the road in Durham, NC.

My first stop for the day was the King’s Daughter’s Inn where Hannah, her family and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The Trinity Suite is such a great room to get ready in as it has a lovely sunroom with an abundance of natural light. From there we headed over to Duke Gardens for Hannah and Andrew’s first look. It was threatening to rain and we had a back-up plan for the first look, but the rain held off and we got Andrew to the spot for the first look. When I went back to get Hannah, the heavens opened. Luckily though, Hannah was up for it (let’s hear it for umbrellas!) and she was willing to brave the raindrops. To say I’m glad she did is a huge understatement: as is often the case when a shower rolls through the light was absolutely gorgeous! After the portraits of the bride and groom and the bride’s entourage at the gardens, we headed over to the chapel, which is always a favourite spot of mine to photograph weddings in. From there, it was over to The Cotton Room for the reception where Frank of Bunn DJ Co. did an amazing job of getting the party going and the dance floor throbbing.

Thank you to Hannah and Andrew for having me along for the day. I truly loved every single minute. And a very special shout-out to the great people who made it all happen including:

A couple of Sundays ago, I got up early headed over to Durham for a Duke Chapel engagement photography session with Brianna and Chris, whose wedding I will be documenting at Duke Chapel next summer. Given they live in the DC area, we hadn't had the chance to meet in person yet, so we got together for a cup of hot chocolate at the amazing Cocoa Cinnamon and headed on over to Duke to get some pictures in the early morning light. These are just a few of my faves from the session.

July closed itself out in style with the fabulous Duke Chapel and Bay 7 wedding of Margo and Patrick, who all you avid readers of this blog might remember from their engagement shoot this past spring. Well, this was their big day, I was really looking forward to it, and it didn't disappoint. Margo and Kathy at Sally Oakley Weddings & Events had done a great job liaising with me to plan the timeline and so we had plenty of time for the getting ready shots at the WaDuke, followed by a first look and group photos at Duke Gardens before heading to the chapel for more portraits and the ceremony itself. The reception at Bay 7 was a lot of fun w ...

It was a great privilege for me to recently be one of the wedding photographers in Raleigh asked to provide a few of my photos for Duke Chapel's new wedding website. Given that there are just twelve wedding photographs total in the set, to have two of my images selected and be featured amongst some of the area's most established photographers was a real honour. With three more weddings booked at Duke already this year, I'm looking forward to working in what is one of my favourite venues again soon! Watch this space!!
