elizabeth and steven {tie the knot} the duke mansion

I can't believe that I am writing this blog post on maternity leave. Truly insane! My baby boy is here and {currently napping}, so I am taking full advantage by blogging my first post as a new mama. But more on my little man later...

Over the years, I have managed many weddings at The Duke Mansion.  Last season was a record for me as I managed six at the Duke in one year. Although, even with much time spent at the mansion, I had not yet planned a wedding there with an outdoor reception. In fact, it was on my goal list when Elizabeth came in for a consultation late last year. Her vision was to have dinner on the new lawn and I was 100% on board.

The weather was perfect on June 14th as Elizabeth and Steven were married at Myers Park Methodist Church and, as planned, followed with their cocktail reception and dinner outside as the sun set on the Duke.  I can now mark a goal off my list...and while it took nearly four years to was totally worth the wait!

Please enjoy some photos from Elizabeth and Steven's day, photographed by Dan Klutz Photography.

As always, a special thank you to the vendors that made this day a success!
