Caroline and Dana’s Duke Chapel and Bay 7 Wedding Celebration!

Meet Caroline and Dana!  This beautiful bride and handsome groom exchanged vows at Duke University Chapel which was the perfect setting for Caroline’s stunning wedding gown. Caroline was definitely channeling her inner Grace Kelly, and we couldn’t love her dress more! Our bride and groom (as you can tell) had an absolute blast working with the fabulous team from Carolyn Scott Photography; it was so much fun watching Caroline and Dana let loose and have some fun with their wedding party.

 

Following the ceremony, guests quickly made their way to Bay 7 at the American Tobacco Campus where they were greeted by the wonderful Angus Barn Staff. Beautiful garden-inspired lush pink florals with gold and ivory accents and pillar candles, designed by the amazing team at Tre Bella Florist, made the space come to life and glow with warmth. Custom stationary designed by the bride’s talented sister, Sweetpress Paper, added an elegant touch to the tables.

 

After a delicious meal by the Angus Barn, guests indulged in wedding cake that was almost too pretty to eat, provided by Edible Art, while GrooveTown kicked off the night with a crowd favorite, “Funk You Up.” The dance floor was packed the entire night, with one slight departure when the Bride and Groom surprised guests with a late night donut snack from their favorite local shop, Baker’s Dozen.

 

We are so thankful we were able to be a part of what was truly a wonderful affair! A big thanks to the fabulous team of vendors who made Caroline and Dana’s day unforgettable! Thanks also to the newlyweds; we wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness!
