So many weddings and so little time to blog. I’m happy to announce that, today, i’ve blogged! yay! Recently I was back at one of my all time favorite wedding venues for a gorgeous Duke Chapel Wedding. I’ve written so many times about how absolutely gorgeous Duke Chapel is that, honestly, I think I have exhausted every adjective that can be used. Nonetheless, I’ll just repeat myself and say that, if you’ve never seen it in person, it is DEFINITELY worth the trip.
Logan and Andrew, as well as their families, all came in from out of town for their Duke Chapel Wedding Ceremony. Both of them got ready at the gorgeous Washington Duke Inn hotel, just down the street from the Chapel. One thing I really love about the hotel is how gorgeous their rooms are. Plenty of places to get beautiful photos of the wedding gown, shoes, bouquet, jewelry, etc. Once Logan got ready, we took her downstairs as her & Andrew wanted to see each other before the ceremony. We carved out a little space in the hotel so they could have a private moment – well, almost private as we were, of course, photographing it. We gave them a moment afterwards though. :)
After the happy couple spent a few minutes with each other, we all headed over to Duke Gardens to capture some gorgeous photos of both them and their bridal party. I finally got to do a shot I had always wanted to – from across the water. After we finished up, we headed back to Duke Chapel and, before you know it, Logan was walking down the aisle! It was a gorgeous ceremony that ended right at sunset. To be honest, sunset at Duke Chapel is my favorite time in the world. As we were leaving, I got a couple of incredible photos with Duke Chapel with a twilight sky behind it that I just have to show you.
After the wedding was over, we all headed over to the Washington Duke Inn for their reception. With a live band, close to 200 people (including a very pleasant VIP) and so many close family & friends, the wedding reception was definitely one to remember! Once you throw in the worm, the soul train boogie lane and all the happy people, you could not describe this as anything else but one might fine wedding reception!
I’d like to thank Logan, Andrew and both of their families for their warmth, hospitality and graciousness to us here at Brian Mullins Photography. We had an absolutely wonderful time capturing your wedding day and wish you both a lifetime of happiness! As always, here are a few photos from Logan & Andrew’s wedding day!
