Chapel Hill Chinese New Year Tea Party
I've been wanting to photograph my incredibly beautiful friends for a while and on Chinese New Year, they agreed! Every year Stacy throws a magnificent party full of tiny homemade treats and drinks to celebrate the New Year. To honor the Year of The Fire Rooster we decided to have a tea party! We placed pops of red, to symbolize good fortune and joy, and gold, to symbolize completeness.
We shot at sunset in an incredible field in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and I was even able to film them! Let me know what you think of the video!

The fact that they had a little wedding tea ceremony is so darling. This looks like such an intimate and fun little wedding.
