What is not to love about this Duke Chapel Wedding & Bay 7 reception? It is such a lovely, timeless day. It’s classy but not stiff. Formal but relaxed. So many smiles and true love all around.

This couple stole my heart the first time I met them for their private estate engagement photos. We wandered, chatted and instantly clicked. The best part of my job is that my couples often feel more like friends than clients! And these two definitely moved into the friend bubble. They’re two of the sweetest and most genuine people. With hearts made of gold! It’s no wonder they found each other and fell in love. They’re perfectly matched in every way!

It was such an honor to photograph the beginning of their forever. Laura & Parker, thank you for trusting us with these precious memories and your special day. It was a dream! We wish you two all the congratulations in the world and hope you have the happiest of marriages!! Which we have no doubt about, because you two are as perfect as perfect can be.

All images below were taken on film! Love how the classic-ness of film made their timeless Duke Chapel Wedding day feel even more timeless!
