Duke Blue Devils

Courtney and I booked K and J awhile back. They were looking for someone to help plan their reception! They had already booked the ceremony venue, Duke Chapel:

If you know anything about Duke Chapel, you know that they are SUPER strict about who you have and what you do. They both graduated from Duke and it has special place in their heart. They moved up north after they graduated and are successful lawyers. So, we have been talking on the phone, via e-mail, and they have come down for a few visits to meet vendors and find the venue! They are sooo nice and we love working with them. They are laid back, and are on the ball with all the planning! Their big day is approaching and we are so stoked!

Their Reception is at a Country Club in Durham:




Their centerpieces are handmade frames with scenic pictures in them – very cool!

Their colors are Duke colors (of course!). We are thinking blue tea light holders to surround the frames just to give it a little bit of a pop.



The room is so gorgeous that you really don't need to do too much to the tables.



Michael's Memories is shooting their big day. We have not personally worked with him before, but his references sounded really great. It is always fun to meet new photographers and vendors! They are using Ross with Just Music - WE LOVE HIM!! He is so amazing. He is not obnoxious (everyone has experienced that type of DJ before!), he is very professional, and just does an amazing job! I would highly recommend him! Their cake is being made by Sorte Desserts. They were super excited about the cake. We didn't get to go on the tasting trip, but they assured us that is was amazing!
We can't wait for their big day! It is going to be such a great time. I will definitely post after the wedding with pictures!
