duane + michele // wedding . rockingham nc

We recently had the opportunity to photograph yet another one of our former classmates' weddings - the [ second one this year ] so far! Duane went to college with us for photography & is now a [ wedding photographer ] himself, so we were very honored to be trusted with the photography of his & Michele's big day. :)

The first look:

Duane & Michele got married at Community Church in Rockingham where their good friend, Robby Stewart, officiated the ceremony. This wedding has been a long time coming, & you could tell Duane could hardly contain his excitement as Michele was coming down the aisle. Watching Duane's reaction, I just couldn't wipe the great big, goofy smile off of my face. :) I love these moments!

On our way to the reception, we took a little detour to the [ Leak Wall House ] in downtown Rockingham for a few portraits of the newlyweds.

These next two are so sweet - you can definitely see the love & adoration these two have for each other. :)

Love this huge tree! The "Cedar of Lebanon" was planted by John Wall Leak & his wife in 1850.

Duane & Michele made their grand entrance into the [ Cole Auditorium ] & went straight into a fun choreographed first dance to "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas. So cute! :)

Duane & Michele - you guys are both such sweet, genuine people & we were glad to have had the opportunity to be a part of this special day in your lives. Thank you so much for everything! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
