Lani & Jussi’s Wedding at The Cotton Room in Durham, NC

Lani & Jussi live and work in Europe but Lani’s family has roots in Durham.  They chose to have their wedding and reception at The Cotton Room in Durham.  All of Jussi’s family flew in from Finland for this once in a lifetime event. We provided them with ceremony audio, wedding reception DJ and their wedding uplighting.  To quote our friend Hooman at Vesic Photography: From morning yoga for the bridesmaids to the heartfelt toasts to the dancing at the end of the night, Lani’s big, warm, love filled smile says more than any words could say about their day“.

Thanks so much Lani & Jussi and safe travels forever!
