white-flowered shrub in atlanta

This is growing on the edge of the woods next to my property. Cane-like branches, 10-15' tall, like elderberry, but obviously not. Leaves are opposite, they can be seen in the background. I thought it was bush honeysuckle, but the flowers don't match anything I've seen online. Thanks!

I can't tell scale too well from the photo. I think it is a double flowering Deutzia, but it could be a double Mock orange, Philadelphus. Some types of mock orange are scented. The leaves and flowers on the mock orange are larger than those on the Deutzia.

Deutzia scabra.
