Melanie and Greg: An Elegant Durham Wedding

I’m so excited to share Melanie and Greg’s wedding! When I first chatted with Melanie it was clear that she wanted an elegant wedding but, didn’t want it to feel too stuffy or formal. She wanted her guests to have fun!

The day started off with a lovely ceremony at Duke Chapel. To  honor her alma mater Melanie chose to wear Duke blue shoes and bring in the same blue accent with the flower girl dresses. After the ceremony Melanie and Greg took some time to stroll through Duke Gardens for a little personal time before meeting everyone at the reception. Once they arrived the party was in full swing! Guests were enjoying cocktails on the Washington Duke Inn patio and then found their seat in the colorful ballroom. Melanie’s second accent color, coral, was brought out in the  gorgeous flowers from A Watered Garden. After dinner guests danced the night away and enjoyed a fun popcorn bar with a combination of both savory and sweet treats!

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