Hope you had a great Halloween! Derek and I had another fun, busy weekend that included another wedding. I guess we’re at that age now? Weird.
My parents and brother came into town on Friday afternoon to go to a family friend’s wedding on Saturday. My brother Jared was the best man in the wedding, so he headed straight to the rehearsal, but my parents came over for dinner. We caught up and ate Chinese food while we waited for trick-or-treaters. We only ended up getting one trick-or-treater, but it was a nice, relaxing way to spend Friday night.
The next day we headed to the wedding ceremony, which was at Duke Chapel. Duke Chapel is absolutely stunning and definite must-see if you visit Durham.

It was a sweet ceremony, and everything looked beautiful.
The reception was at Angus Barn in Raleigh. There were floating candles on all the tables, gorgeous rose and hydrangea flower arrangements, and a roaring fire in the fireplace.

It was oh-so-cozy. As one can expect from Angus Barn, the food was delicious as well. We had a blast dancing, and Jared did a great job with his best man speech.

I’m definitely a romantic so I love weddings, but I especially enjoyed this one. I’m also thankful for another chance to spend time with my family. Can’t wait to see them at Christmas!
Love my family. From left to right: Jared, my mom, Derek, me, and my dad.
