Michelle + Anthony - Intimate Chapel Hill Wedding

Michelle and Anthony were married last month at Won-Buddhism Meditation Temple in Chapel Hill. It was an intimate gathering of 35 close family & friends in attendance and was held inside the temple.  Its such a peaceful and beautiful place with unique architecture, natural wood, stonework, and cork floors. And of course the surrounding gardens on the property were just gorgeous. The red bud, dogwoods, blooming cherries, & hellebores were in full bloom, making for a nice backdrop. 

Michelle, looked stunning in her tea length lace wedding gown and carried a bouquet of yellow alstroemeria lilies. Her father walked her down the aisle and gave her away. Anthony entered the temple with his three sons, who were his groomsmen. They were very much involved in the celebration, which really was special for them. Michelle's dear friend Bailey, was her attendant and also played the part of flower girl. Rev. G. Hyun Lee officiated the ceremony which included many Buddhist wedding traditions. 

After their ceremony, Michelle and Anthony greeted their guests in the meditation garden and made time for a few wedding party, family, and of course photos of the two of them together.  Anthony & Michelle are both rock climbers and outdoors enthusiasts, so it was no surprise when Anthony started to climb the walls in his suit - photo below as proof!  They also took a few photos with the very gracious Rev. Lee.

Later that evening Michelle & Anthony invited their guests to join them at their new home for an informal reception, with friends capturing photos there. Congratulations to the newlyweds! What a fun loving couple whom I really enjoyed working with.
