Even before she started dating her husband-to-be, Sophia told herself that should she become engaged to another Duke alum, they were definitely getting married at Duke Gardens. Fast-forward to her junior year, Sophia began dating someone she’d been friends with since orientation freshman year, and seven years later, before Sophie began medical school, she and Timmy became engaged!
They both knew without a doubt that Duke Gardens was the place and so set about planning a celebration with a lovely blue palette (of course!) amongst the gorgeous flowers and trees.
