anna and jonathan | tie the knot | the duke mansion

I have been dy-ing to share these images with you from Anna and Jonathan's magnolia-themed Duke Mansion wedding from May.

These two couldn't be any sweeter. Having met at Elon University, Jonathan surprised Anna with a proposal during Elon's Homecoming weekend.

Being that both ceremony and reception were outside at the Duke, Anna wanted to embrace the surrounding gardens at the Duke Mansion by incorporating magnolias into her design. Because weather was a concern, Anna and Jonathan decided to take part in an old wives' tale by burying a bottle of bourbon upside-down at the wedding venue weeks before the wedding. On wedding day (a gorgeous, sunny day I may add), Anna and Jonathan dug the bottle back up and maaaaaay have taken a sip. Or two.

Please enjoy some of my favorite images from Lauren Rosenau Photography.

Thank you to all of the vendors who made this night a success!
