I've been taking a break from blogging. A winter hibernation, you could say. But Ricky and Kelly's New Year's Wedding at The Washington Duke Inn in Durham was too beautiful to not tell you about. Amanda Krantz from C2 Photo Concepts took these lovely pictures.
The wedding was in the small rotunda room at the inn, just perfect for their small wedding. Thanks to Beth Pendergrast, too, for her great coordination efforts that day on behalf of the inn.
Kelly's mother escorted her into the ceremony
It was a small intimate ceremony for close family and friends, the room just large enough for the about people who attended. Kelly's sister and Ricky's stepfather were the Matron of Honor and Best Man. A friend even operated the IPOD for their ceremony music.
It was also a joy to celebrate their daughter, Ella, who was really patient with all the festivities happening around her.
After the ceremony, the Ricky, Kelly and their guests simply walked down the hall for their lunch reception.
Veronica Yoshida, of Southern Gold Leaf Cakes made their wonderful cake.
I wish them so much happiness. Even these few months later, they still bring a smile to my heart.
