Lauren and Matt: A Classic Durham Wedding at Watt’s St. Baptist and The Rickhouse

Lauren and Matt’s love story is a true Durham tale. One day as Lauren and her family were strolling downtown, Matt (on the other side of a fence at the Surf Club) yelled over and invited Lauren and her family to play bocce. The chemistry was instant and Lauren and Matt ended up spending hours together that evening talking and getting to know each other.  The next few months they fell in love with Durham as the backdrop to their romance. So, it was only appropriate that they stay local for their wedding celebration.

Lauren and Matt were married on the perfect fall day! The ceremony took place at Watt’s Street Baptist which held extra special meaning since Lauren’s family has worshiped there for three generations. After the wedding guests headed to the nearby Rickhouse where they enjoyed delicious food from Donovan’s Dish. One of the incredibly special details were the flowers. Not only were they stunningly beautiful but, the were made by Lauren’s own family which owns, Sander’s Florist.

I hope you read this blog and get inspired for your own wedding day!
