Martha's and Doug's wedding was a beautiful affair


Martha’s and Doug’s wedding was a simple and elegant affair. They were married over Labor Day weekend at historic Massey’s Chapel United Methodist Church in Durham, a beautiful, white church in the Gothic Revival style that dates to the early twentieth century. After the wedding party got ready and met for pictures at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham, they convened at the church for an intimate service with family and close friends. Then all convened for the reception and cocktails at the fabulous restaurant Parizade in Durham. Congratulations, Martha and Doug!
