Lauren + Jeff | Classic Southern Summer Affair | Duke Gardens Wedding
Talk about a classic Southern affair. This lovely Duke Gardens summer wedding was just perfect. Lauren + Jeff have immaculate taste. From the blush and gold reception details to the heirloom WWI cake cutting sword, this couple treated their guests to a gorgeous night of music and sparkling cocktails. The weather was perfect and the bridal party was glowing in floor length blush gowns - perfect for summer. Jeff and Lauren, both Duke grads, chose to do the non-traditional first look on the campus where they first met. With their wedding party looking on, they got to share a sweet moment together before exchanging their vows.
Lauren's stunning solitaire was right at home in her new Mrs. Box.
Lauren's bouquet was a gorgeous mix of warm blush and ivories, a compilation of dahlias, garden roses, hydrangea, and ranunculus.
Among all the pretty details were these custom bar signs created for the bride and groom. Guests were treated to Singapore & Stormy cocktails - an ode to the Groom's upbringing in Singapore and Georgia Peaches for Lauren's Southern roots.
A big thank you to all the vendors who brought Lauren + Jeff's day to life!
