Jenn and Luke live in New York City now but met while they were both law students at Duke. So they decided Duke Chapel would be the best place to get married--right where it all began! So on September 24th, 2016 I had the honor of joining them in marriage.Duke Chapel is vast and daunting and a beautiful setting for a wedding. The chapel was closed for over a year for restoration and reopened the summer of 2016. They have weddings on the weekends every 2 hours so we were on a precise schedule as usual. Blanche Williams with the chapel has the rehearsal and wedding day schedule down to a T and the efficiency is amazing. I thank their wonderful photographer, Brian Mullins, for referring Jenn and Luke to me. Ashley and Nathan with Oak City Films were there to capture the wedding on video.

Here they come!
Then they got to hear what each one had told me in confidence about their love for each other.
Jenn is hearing what Luke told me here.
A few tears leaked out!
They made their vows to each other.
Then exchanged their rings.
Time for the Unity Candle Ceremony.
They joined their individual flames and lit the Candle of Unity and Commitment.
The closing blessing came next.
Then the pronouncement of marriage!
Sealed with a kiss!
"We did it!"
