Downtown Durham Wedding

Downtown Durham wedding at the Cotton Room for Chelsea & Tristan

Last weekend we were back at one of the best downtown Durham wedding venues: The Cotton Room. This wedding was Chelsea & Tristan’s and though it was one of the hottest days of the year so far, this wedding was quite cool. (If you’re new here, I never apologize for my dad jokes. I am who I am.)

But back to Chelsea & Tristan, who had a touching ceremony including a time capsule box with a bottle of wine and letters to read on their anniversary. After their ceremony, they absolutely rocked it at portraits, and then partied the night away.

It’s all fun and games until someone splits their pants. Then it’s hilarious.
