On Sunday, May 18th I had the pleasure of marrying Tasnim and Melida at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center located in Cary. Originally built as a railroad hotel in 1868, it is now owned by the Town of Cary Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources. It currently contains a heritage museum, art exhibits, meeting rooms, and of course, rental space for weddings and special events!

In this shot you can see the Page-Walker Center on the left and the beautiful green lawn with patio and pergola that is perfect for outdoor weddings.

Here is a better look at the ceremony space. It is beautiful on its own, but also provides a nice base for couples wishing to add their own decorations. This was my first wedding working with Violinist, David Binanay (if you look closely you can spot him in this pic!). David is super talented and I’ve been lucky enough to work with him again since this first meeting. Make sure you check out his website here.

This is the view from the couple’s perspective! I loved that Melida and Tasnim added just a few pots of gerbera daisies to bring a spring-y feeling to the patio. What had been a very warm weekend cooled down a bit with the cloud cover and I think everyone appreciated it!

Following the ceremony, the witnesses headed over to the reception area to sign the marriage license. This is such a beautiful and intimate little outdoor space for a reception!

The couple sent this nice note following the wedding day:

“Thank you so very much for such a nicely done wedding ceremony. Many mentioned that how nicely you performed the ceremony. We highly appreciate you help in this regard. All the best, Melida and Tasnim.”

And funny enough, I was at a wedding the following weekend when one of the servers yelled, “Hey! You married my mom last weekend!” Small world! It was Melida’s daughter 🙂
