I am so happy to post Kayla and Sam’s Duke Chapel wedding. It was such a pleasure to get to know Kayla and Sam over the past year. After years of dating, Sam popped the question and the wedding planning began. Naturally, Duke Chapel was the perfect setting for what was to be a beautiful day.
And when that day finally arrived, Both Kayla and Sam were ready! They didn’t want to see each other before the wedding, so instead they decided to share a private prayer before the ceremony began. It was such a touching moment to witness. But it wasn’t all serious business just yet; each shared a few giggles anticipating all the events still ahead.
Kayla, hand-n-hand with her beloved dad, began the long walk down the aisle. As guests rose in their seats, Sam could not hold back a smile from ear to ear. Throughout the ceremony, Kayla and Sam rarely took their eyes off one another. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony!
Afterwards, we headed outside in the blistering heat to capture a few gorgeous portraits of the couple. Sam, sporting his tux, stuck it out in the heat with us as we made our way to Washington Duke Inn for more portraits before heading to the reception.
Once guests took their seats, Kayla and Sam made their grand entrance as Mr. and Mrs. Rouse! It was a beautiful evening filled with tear-filled toasts, dancing and a surprise vocal performance from the groom to his bride.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Rouse!
