Blending European elegance and unabashed beauty, this classic affair is alive with the sound of wedded bliss. Complete with Cody Raisig‘s pictures, it's a fairytale ending that's just waiting for you to unfold in THE FULL GALLERY!

“We met the “old fashioned way” – at a dive bar in Greenwich Village, NY. I was meeting with friends during my fall break from college (I was attending Duke University at the time), he was meeting with his fraternity friends after work. He approached me and we chatted for awhile before he asked me for my phone number. He called me the following day to talk and set up a date. I knew I was falling in love with him when he flew to Durham, NC to visit me for a weekend a few months later. Despite the distance, I don't think a day passed by when we did not speak to each other on the phone. This was 9 years ago, and our love has only continued to transform into a deeper appreciation and dependence on one another.” – the Bride.

“Our biggest advice is to go with the flow on your wedding day. Your only concern is getting married to the love of your life. Not everything will go as planned, but that is definitely okay. That being said, having diligent event planners helped the day run so much more smoothly. We highly recommend hiring event planners, at least for the day of the wedding.” – the Bride.
