Sparkles From Top to Bottom for This Elegant Meets Boho Chic Bash

While they may be one adventurous couple (we're talking around the world travels, underwater photography and sharks) when it came time to say "I do" they settled on Chapel Hill and the comfort that only home can bring. They decked out Fearrington House with sparkles from top to bottom and extended that style all the way to the Bride's beautiful Jenny Peckham dress. Graham Terhune captured all and we're positively smitten with this daring duo who also appreciate the beauty of home base.

From the Bride... My husband and I are from opposite corners of the globe (he’s from Melbourne, Australia, and though I was born in Korea, I grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina). We met in 2008 in Roatan, Honduras where I was living at the time. Our journey over the past eight years has been filled with global adventures due to the fact that our long distance love affair gave us a great excuse to travel. As an underwater photographer, I eventually made him into a sort of muse, placing him next to sharks, coral walls and deep wrecks in places like Fiji, Micronesia and the Bahamas. And so though it would have been fitting to have a destination wedding, we decided that, with the overwhelming world of possibilities out there to choose from, that we would celebrate our story in Chapel Hill. A modest university town, we figured it was a fitting place for restless travelers to put their feet up for a week or two, eat a few home cooked, Southern meals, and inhale the North Carolina spring in a place that most would never have an excuse to visit otherwise.

But for us, it was truly the people who made the wedding memorable. We had friends and family in from all seven continents (including a bestie who jumped off an icebreaker coming from Antarctica and onto a flight to North Carolina). It was a melting pot of ethnicities, backgrounds and interests, all thrown together in Fearrington’s barn that was adorned with eucalyptus (in celebration of my Australian husband), sparkly linens (in concert with my obsession with sparkles, which is also evident from my dress), and twinkly lights. And to top it all off, the band was killer, and as they closed out the evening with “Purple Rain” (Prince had just passed, but the song had been requested a long time before, because it is my favorite), the entire wedding party circled around us. And when the song finished, everyone collapsed onto us into one, giant, hug, ending a most magical night with some our best friends from around the world.
