Jane & Tyler // Duke Gardens Wedding Durham NC

Duke Gardens was the perfect place for today’s stunning wedding between Jane and Tyler. It added a sense of romance and love that defined this couple and their big day. When ever I see Jane, I think of music. She, herself, is singer trained in opera with a heart for jazz and a mind sharper than average. You can see it in her, really – the music. Her wedding day with Tyler was no different. Her laughter came easy, as did her warmth toward her new husband and it was as perfect a wedding as I’ve ever seen. Jane and Tyler were truly a photographer’s dream – they were more than happy to get my opinion on lighting and timing for the day and it paid off ten-fold for their beautiful portraits and wedding ceremony in the stunning Duke Gardens. Their outdoor ceremony took place at sunset, as golden light lit up the tops of the trees around them. We completed all of their images beforehand so they were able to head into their twinkly light cocktail hour and candlelit reception right away. ¬†Throw in a pink wedding dress, flowers in her hair and her handsome Tyler in a bow-tie and it was the perfect southern evening.
