Eliza and Matt’s Duke Chapel and Cotton Room Wedding!

October 25, 2016

A modern day Audrey Hepburn is how we view our sweet bride, Eliza!  Her classic style paired with her stunning Austin Scarlett gown made for the most beautiful  summertime soiree at Duke University Chapel and The Cotton Room.   Matt and Eliza met after his freshman year at Duke when he was home for the summer and began a nursing research internship at UVA, where Eliza also worked that summer. After dating long-distance for several years, the couple moved to Nashville after graduation and Matt proposed to Eliza.  The two knew they had to have their ceremony at Duke Chapel (Matt is a third generation Duke graduate!) so they reached out to us after camping outside the Chapel to get their perfect wedding date.   Gorgeous, lush blooms and a neutral palette accented with dusty gray brought a softness to the industrial chic space that is The Cotton Room and created the perfect setting for a night full of love, laughter and dancing!   This sweet couple’s  infectious love for one another was captured flawlessly by the amazing Riley MacLean Photography and we couldn’t be more excited to share a few images from their day with you!
