Torie and Billy’s Duke Wedding

Torie and Billy were married this past July in Durham.  Since they both attended school at Duke for school, they knew they wanted to have their ceremony at Duke Chapel.  It was only fitting…and, it’s incredibly beautiful!  They continued their celebration at Bay 7 in the American Tobacco District where the Angus Barn provided delicious food and drinks!  From the long Prussian Blue gowns for the bridesmaids to Duke themed socks for the groomsmen, this was definitely a wedding all about Torie and Billy and their love for each other and Duke. And of course the Duke theme contined throughout the night in the reception. The cobalt blue water goblets added the perfect touch to the room, along with the custom silver monogrammed chargers and napkin rings.  It was a beautiful wedding from start to finish, with so many unique details that made it perfect for Torie and Billy…and other happy Duke fans too!

Thank you Torie and Billy for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful day and for writing this kind review:

Gina at A Southern Soirée – literally, there is nobody better. She’s fun and friendly, the type of girl you’d want to be friends with, but she knows her stuff better than anyone else! Even the smallest of details were taken care of, and on the day of my wedding when my head was in the clouds and I couldn’t keep track of anything, she was right there behind the scenes, making sure everything went smoothly and keeping her eye on everything. So much was changing even up to the last minute, but she made sure that every single ridiculous request or change was taken care of. She also had great recommendations for vendors in the area as well. The moment when I truly realized how amazing she was occurred a week before the wedding, when the rental place for my cobalt glassware had an issue at one of their events and a bunch of the glasses shattered. She was furiously all over the internet and making calls and emails to find replacement glassware, and I was so grateful!

Also, thank to Brian Mullins Photography for these amazing images!
