Duke Chapel / Washington Duke Inn Wedding Film | Caitlin + Chase

The Meeting…
They met when they both participated in the same Duke study abroad program in Sesto Fiorentino, Italy.
The Proposal…
They had dinner at the Restaurant at Meadowood in Napa Valley, California. The hotel built a fire in their cabin and brought in champagne while they were out, and he proposed in the room after dinner. It was quiet and personal, which was particularly fitting for them. They have been together for about 8.5 years (about 7 at the time of the proposal), but it was still exciting and unexpected.
