One Year Ago Today...Our Wedding

One year ago today was our traditional Durham wedding with a Duke Chapel wedding ceremony followed by a Greystone Inn wedding reception. Here are a few photos from our wonderful photographers, Walters & Walters (they're the best...I tell all my engaged friends about them!). 

As soon as I laid eyes on the Greystone Inn in Durham I knew it was where I wanted to have my wedding reception. It was the perfect southern old estate wedding reception I had always imagined. And all of our vendors did a wonderful job transforming it into a classy evening reception venue. I'm very grateful for all their hard work. I'm truly privileged that I now I get to work with many of these talented wedding professionals. 

I get LOTS of questions about the Jackie Kennedy style bridesmaids dresses I selected so I'll tell you: they were from David's Bridal and were unfortunately limited edition so David's Bridal doesn't carry that style anymore. However, they've still got lots of elegant and stylish bridesmaids dresses to choose from so fret not it you had your heart set on these (seriously, I get so many e-mails asking me where these dresses are from! It makes me feel great to know I actually selected good bridesmaids dresses seeing that the old adage is that bridesmaids dresses are never pretty.)

This was my favorite wedding memory moment, our first dance as Mr. & Mrs. to Michael Buble's "Hold On". 

From walking down that epic aisle at our Duke Chapel wedding ceremony to munching on the amazing local eats prepared by Green Planet Catering our wedding day was all that I had hoped for from start to finish. Looking back I'm so grateful for that amazing day, but even more grateful for what an amazing life with Mike I have today.
