After spending an evening in downtown Durham with Stephanie and Kevin, I couldn’t wait for their wedding day. It turned out to be everything that I had thought it would be: sweet, sentimental and filled with gorgeous garden details that paired perfectly with the lovely surroundings of Duke Gardens. Stephanie’s style is soft, simple and elegant. She looked radiant in her stunning illusion neckline gown which was paired with a bouquet filled with gorgeous coral charm peonies, and Kevin was blown away when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time.

One of my favorite parts of their wedding day, was hearing their parent’s toasts during the reception. Many tears were shed as they recognized the incredible bond that these two have and how they were brought together. I loved hearing about the connection that these two families had even though they didn’t realize it until Stephanie and Kevin started dating. Both of their parents quickly realized how many mutual close family friends from all across the country they had. Many of those friends had even known both Stephanie and Kevin as young children! I’ll never forget when Stephanie told me, “It’s crazy to think about how two people end up together and all the different circumstances and natural forces that shape our destiny. And then sometimes, we also realize it’s a small world and how everyone is only connected by six degrees of freedom or less.” From beginning to end, this day was absolutely gorgeous and I’m so honored to have captured it all behind my camera! Congratulations Stephanie and Kevin!
