Real Wedding: Ashley & John

John & Ashley's wedding weekend was quintessential Durham. Some weddings are all about the glitz, glam and grandeur, but this couple had something different in mind. Their ceremony was hosted at the downtown art gallery, Alizarin Gallery, where industrial met elegance. Family and friends met the couple at the historic King's Daughters Inn for the cocktail hour on the front porch as they took in the truly beautiful experience. Guests feasted on a mix of Southern American and Jamaican staples, both special to the bride and groom. All the details were a lovely reflection of their love for Durham and captured by Johnny Jones of Zoe Pictures.
