The Rickhouse – Durham Wedding
Lauren + Murray’s Downtown Durham Wedding at The Rickhouse.
We were so honored to photograph Lauren and Murray’s wedding this fall. I went to school with Lauren and we share mutual friends, so it was fun to be able to photograph a love that we’ve been able to see blossom. Lauren and Murray were married at The Rickhouse in downtown Durham. We always love a good warehouse wedding venue – all of that exposed brick and reclaimed wood! And this one is even more awesome as it overlooks the original Durham Bulls field!
This sweet couple met while working together as chefs at Washington Duke Inn. It’s pretty safe to say that food and drink are an important part of their lives! Murray proposed to Lauren at Mystery Brewing during a special dinner date where they were able to brew their own beer batch. So we loved that Mystery Brewing surprised them with a special last batch of the Peachy-Keen Gose that Lauren and Murray brewed on the night of their engagement. These two also incorporated their love of Durham and beer by collecting bottles from all of the local breweries and distilleries and crafting them into vases for their centerpieces. Lauren’s maid of honor designed all of the floral arrangements; a mix of roses, calla lillies, and gerbera daisies that brought a touch of fall to their decor and complemented the pink bridesmaid dresses perfectly.
All in all, Lauren and Murray’s wedding day was pretty perfect! Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of your day!
First Looks are always my favorite! All of the couple’s anxieties melt away and they’re able to enjoy a few minutes to share their excitement.
And Murray’s reaction to seeing Lauren was adorable!
