Duke Gardens Wedding: Michelle and Nasir

This was a last minute gig for us here at C and D. Michelle called one day (about 4 weeks out from her date) needing a planner. We luckily had the day available and met her over some coffee at Panera Bread. We knew it was going to be a fun wedding when she told us that the groom's family rented a tour bus to take his whole family from Chicago to Durham! How awesome is that?!? The bride was Korean and the groom Pakistani. Needless to say it was seriously the most fun watching these people truly celebrate a great couple. They knew how to dance, party, and celebrate! It was the longest sparkler line I have ever seen with about 90% of the guests present. It was even a late wedding! I really think other cultures know how to celebrate much better than us Americans. They had basically another reception the night before for their rehearsal dinner and I heard some really great stories from the bridal party about the wild night. I hope our venue turns weddings into weekend affairs much like this wedding. With out further ado..some pictures..
