Leslie and Jean were my kind of people. They enjoy the rain, which worked out in our favor for their engagement session, and liked images that were a tad bit off the cuff. We met right as the sun was tired at one of their favorite hole in the walls—Bar Virgile. After a drink or two there, we waited for the rain to stop momentarily and then bolted to the parking deck right beside Bar Virgile.

The parking deck is kind of like my secret hiding spot. It’s fun to go there at night and watch the fireworks after the Durham Bulls play. However, for photos it is absolutely gorgeous because you can see downtown Durham, the American Tobacco Campus, and the fun neon bull sign that welcomes everyone to the city. I loved that Leslie and Jean were up for this—they love Durham as much as I do.

We capped the night off at Motorco. This little area is one of MY favorites because it is full of color and those twinkly street lights. We finished just in time before the next batch of rain came.

Enjoy!

Okay—honesty time. I fall in love with my couples. I know. Super weird, but, I do. I first met Brooke and Teddy last year for their engagement session in downtown Durham. You may remember their session as it featured some really fun images of those two at Ponysaurus (their first date spot). So, of course, these two made my favorites list because they were great from the beginning.

Their wedding, though? Oh, it was just as beautiful as these two. The ceremony and reception took place at one of my all time favorite venues — The Rickhouse. Get Lit Special Event Lighting completely transformed the place by placing these beautiful white drapes at the altar site; it, honestly, felt a bit magical. Just wait until you see the ceremony site! It even dubbed as a beautiful backdrop of the head table at the reception!

The day started out dreary. The weather stated it was supposed to rain ALL DAY. Which, in the beginning, it did. However, right before Brooke and Teddy’s first look the sky opened and it was sunny until night. It was really a pretty site to see.

Brooke and Teddy did their first look on the patio of the Rickhouse overlooking the old Durham Ball Park. This may have been my most favorite part of the day only because I could see the sheer excitement in these two seeing eachother for the first time. They exchanged cards that they had written to eachother over the past couple of years they had been together, and—it was just the sweetest. They were completely smitten with one another.

After all of the jitters had passed, guests started to arrive and sit for the ceremony. Not only did Brooke’s parents walk her down the aisle—but, her father was the actual Minister who married the two of them at the altar. The colors of blush and grey looked almost mesmerizing, but how Teddy looked at Brooke had to have been the best part.

To be honest, I have had a hard time picking out favorites for this blog post as I am loving their entire gallery. Brooke and Teddy—Congratulations! Thank you for your kindness!
