American Tobacco Campus | Bay 7 | Light Up Durham!

Ahh..  the holidays are really here!  I love being a part of larger organizations that allow me to network with other wedding professionals.  Back in November, I was asked to cover this years Light Up Durham! celebration at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham.   I had a chance to discuss it over dinner with Valerie Ward and, frankly, I was immediately excited!  If you are not familiar with the event, the American Tobacco Campus has a huge water tower at its center.  Instead of flying in a Christmas tree, they string lights on the water tower and have a huge event, open to the public, to celebrate the throwing of the switch!  This year, they had 4 different groups of singers, from elementary, middle, high school & college performing along with the Raleigh Ringers and several local personalities and a VIP reception at Bay 7.event

Fake snow along with a beautifully decorated campus completed the feeling (thanks to the cold weather as well) and made the event a HUGE success with over 1000 people attending which filled out almost the entire American Tobacco Campus.  Bay 7 housed a beautiful VIP reception where local brewers and a culinary school had suds & food for everyone.  Complete with Christmas decorations and Wull E. Bull made an appearance to try out the food and help celebrate the lighting of the tower.

Here are a few photos from the event!
