Duke University Chapel Wedding

Something  borrowed, something new, and  something blue. Yes, seems traditionally every bride will find details for each of these on their wedding day.   This gorgeous bride and her groom had something blue alright. They chose  Duke University Chapel for their wedding and showed off a bit of blue that day.  The stunning chapel seemed to be the perfect backdrop for this couple and their big day. I love myself a chapel wedding, and this one is beyond words can describe. Oh, and to add a bit of fun, the wedding party had some fun on Duke University basketball court. Enjoy the lovely images from Alexanders Studios and the beautiful details. What will be your something blue? Share with us in the comments below.

Catharine Robinson & Cory Broadnax Story: Married at Duke University Chapel, Durham, NC . Catharine and Cory met through mutual friends in September 2010 at Catharine’s 23rd birthday. They went on their first date at a trivia night, where they learned they share a competitive spirit and love to challenge each other. Before long, Cory was daring Catharine to join him for workouts at his gym, and Cory would meet Catharine for lunch outside her office. They quickly fell in love over their shared enthusiasm for travel, football (Cory had played at Duke in college), and cookie cakes.In the years that followed they wandered the globe together, sailing the Greek isles, eating escargots in Paris, laying on the beaches in Mexico, drinking hot wine in Prague, and hiking the Colca Canyon in Peru. New experiences on each successive trip brought them closer together, and inspired them to continuously search out the next destination to explore.In 2012, they founded a business in Washington, DC to help fund their traveling addiction, setting up big-screen outdoor movies for backyard parties and fundraisers. Most Friday and Saturday nights for the next two summers were spent visiting neighborhoods all over the city, projectors and screens in tow, eating a rushed dinner in the grass while watching old movies.It was fitting, then, that Cory proposed to Catharine in front of their glowing movie screen, under the stars, on a September night in 2013.They decided to get married at the Beautiful Duke Chapel.  The reception married historic Durham (an old tobacco warehouse in Brightleaf Square) and the global atmosphere that embodied Cory and Catharine’s relationship (Chamas, a Brazilian Steakhouse). Every aspect of their wedding was executed with classic style and a timeless beauty. The meticulous attention to detail made for a stress free and fun-filled day for all.They continue to reside in a row house in Washington, DC with their rescue dog, Nino.


Fashionable and Stylish Engagement Session from Big Star Studios

Gushing over this super romantic and lovely engagement session from Big Star Studios. Where can I even begin with the introduction to this e-session? How can I properly introduce this stunning session with this fashionable couple? There are so many details that I love about this engagement session, and so hard to choose one to talk about. So, I will just talk about all of them! First, I have to talk about the dress. How adorable is this dress? It is darling. And the shoes? This bride is totally rocking the pink heels. Perfect compliment to a stunning dress.  I can not handle how pretty this dress is. The bride looks amazing.  Obsessed! Some may say the wedding day is all about the bride, but this engagement session really is! If she looks this good now, I can not imagine what she will wear on her wedding day. I bet it will be as fabulous as this dress.  But I have to say something about the groom-to-be.  He is looking pretty dapper and fashionable. These two love birds should be models. They are so darn gorgeous, and I am loving their style. What is great about this couple, is that you can tell how in love they are with each other and Big Star Studios was there to capture it all.  For all you fashionistas out there, you do not want to miss this stylish and modern e-session.

So we headed up above our studio in Mebane, NC turned up the Bob Marley and started shooting. We love the feel of this shoot. It really captures their passion and love for one another.

Laura wanted something a little more modern for her shoot. But she also wanted to tie in some of the rustic details to make it more her style. We chose an old warehouse in Mebane, NC to start it off then headed out to a local farm to get some softer shots of Laura.
