Wedding Story: Emily and Duvan

It had been awhile since we had a wedding in Raleigh- we were excited to get to sleep in a little bit before heading to one of our favorite Raleigh venues: All Saints Chapel! You have seen how gorgeous Emily looked at her bridal portrait session... she was even more gorgeous on the big day! It was so fun to reconnect with people from high school in this wedding-- and meet some new fabulous people as well :)

Duvan and the guys got ready at his and Emily's new place before heading to the chapel...

Emily and the girls got ready at her best friend (and bridesmaid) from high school's house before heading to the chapel- Lisa and her Mom are two of the most fun people ever. Everyone should get ready at their house :)

Duvan gave Emily these sweet roses along with her gift...

I love so many things in this picture:
the front of the chapel is gorgeous
the different color bouquets are perfection
and these girls are the sweetest!

One of Emily's brothers brought her flowers and there were happy tears everywhere-
they made me tear up just watching them!

Um the best man scared the bejesus out of me- I did not see this jump coming.
Then he told me that my flash scared the bejesus out of HIM when he was in midair.
I guess we're even :)

"Bang bang bang on the door baby

Emily and Duvan: It was so great getting to witness your gentle, sweet love for each other. Your families were both so supportive and loving... and super talented dancers :) We felt right at home with you and your people. Thanks for involving us in your day!
