This fusion wedding with Hindu and American traditions at the Celebration Farm has us swooning! Photographer Emily Crall explains that if you know Melanie + Dan that you just love them. From Emily, “Dan’s best man described it best in his toast later that evening when he said that the first time he met Melanie, he instantly felt like he had always known her because she is just that kind of person; the one who makes you laugh, makes you feel at ease, and makes you want to hang out all the time with her. Seeing her and Dan together is like seeing a perfect pairing because they both exude that ease, friendship, and happiness that is a magnetic force.”
The couple enjoyed their day with relaxed ease after working to include a first look in their timeline. They even included time for more portraits later on in the day in their reception attire. We’ve seen a lot of super lovely weddings at the Celebration Farm, but we especially loved the details brought together with Melanie’s vision and Lola Event Productions (Chicago, IL) — the elephant topiaries and floral swag on the ceremony arches especially! (Like, seriously… swoon!) It’s one of those weddings I’m totally okay admitting that I’m a little jealous I didn’t photograph myself. (I can feel the other photographers reading this post nod their heads in agreement…) It’s not all about the details, though. This couple looks SO fun + SO sweet! And that’s really what it’s all about.
Details of gold, navy blue, and bright pink welcomed the couple and their guests to the reception in the double-round barn along with a live dosa station, a globe ‘guestbook’, + signature cocktails (the couple’s faves). They danced into the evening to celebrate all the love + we can’t believe how much fun it looks like they had. But, don’t just take our word for it. Go ahead and take a peek here today!
Special thanks to sending this sweet wedding our way, Emily Crall Photography!
