Duke Gardens Wedding: Martha and Justin
This was the most surprising wedding of the year for us. We booked Martha almost a year from her wedding at the PWG bridal show. She met us at the show and had a list of questions for us. She had done her homework, been on our site, and had specific questions that her and Justin had talked about. She was seriously the most organized bride I had ever met at a bridal show. I loved her immediately, I think we were separated at birth. We met another time for a free consult and conversed over e-mail a few times before she booked us. Every meeting we had she was "all work." She was in school getting her doctorate at Duke. He was an astrophysicist and she was biochemist working on genetics/cancer research. I assumed her wedding would be similar.
No way! They were so much fun! We loved their families and loved the bridal party even more. They were such a fun group! Martha was so relaxed and so much fun! She salsa-ed with her Dad, and even planned for her and Justin do a choreographed dance to get all the guests on the floor. It was seriously the cutest thing ever! Courtney and I walked out of that wedding so happy and loving our jobs even more.
