Kristen & Ray | Duke Chapel Wedding in Durham, NC

Getting married at the Duke Chapel was a no-brainer for Kristen & Ray, who met singing in the chapel choir there years ago. Kristen laughs her full-body laugh when she tells the story, and is quick to point out that she hardly expected to meet her future husband at choir rehearsal. Meet they did, though, and a bit less than three years later, they were right back where they started (only this time on the altar instead of in the choir loft).

Chatting with their friends and family and listening to the evening’s toasts, I was happy to hear that my first impression of Kristen & Ray back when we met last year is 100% true to who they are and always have been: some of the most genuine, caring people around. That feeling permeated every element of the day, and it was clear that everyone in attendance – myself included – was happy to see these two together. Add to that a spectacularly beautiful day, a lovely, classic Duke Chapel ceremony, and a fantastic reception set to the music of the Duke Adrian Project, and you’ve got a perfect wedding!
