Kami and Austin’s Winter Wedding at Duke University Chapel and Washington Duke Inn

April 3, 2019

Kami and Austin were married this past December in the area their relationship began, Durham. Their ceremony was held at Duke University Chapel with the reception following at Washington Duke Inn.

It was one of the most beautiful holiday weddings we have had the honor of planning with so many thoughtful and intentional details. There are so many things about this day to reflect on with love…. for one, the families on both sides had hearts of gold and were kind, compassionate, and loved to laugh! They trusted us to take the most important aspects to them and help reflect them in the design and details of the day (like Kami and Austin’s sweet pup, Olive)!

Kami and Austin are vegetarians so we delighted in helping come up with a thoughtful and delicious meal for their guests at the Washington Duke Inn where the reception took place. Kami and Austin really wanted to make sure their guests’ experience was one to remember and the small touches including a custom coffee and hot chocolate bar, an a capella group singing holiday tunes, a make your own s’mores station, and pashmina favor (to keep guests warm while making their s’mores and for the couple’s snow machine exit) were some of our favorite additions!

Kami and Austin also thoughtfully mixed their two cultures together and we loved when Kami entered into the ballroom with her mom, grandmother, aunts, and other close relatives in a traditional Saree for a ceremonial marriage blessing by her family members.

After the wedding ended, guests were transported to a private after party at the Unscripted hotel in Durham where they danced the night away with a late night snack bar full of everyone’s favorite junk food treats.

Katherine Miles Jones and Thomas Blake Films did an amazing job capturing the beautiful moments of the day!
