Two worlds became one the day Laura met Mars while on a teaching stint in New Zealand. Laura is a linguistics professor that travels around the globe to teach, and Mars, born in Norway, is a writer and a New Zealand native. Their chance encounter in New Zealand turned into inseparable love, and when Laura moved back to the states Mars followed with an eventual proposal in the works, and you guessed it, she said yes! Their pretty pastel wedding, captured by Michelle Robinson Photography, took place on a beautiful August day at the The Lodge at Pickards Mountain in Chapel Hill NC. Guests and family from all over the world came to celebrate and rejoice in their union while the couple exchanged handwritten vows, recited a handwritten poem together and danced the night away.
