Fairytale Forest Wedding – Keely and Dan

Fairytale Forest Wedding

Keely and Dan – July 3, 2024

Keely and Dan’s wedding at Chapel in the Hollow was nothing short of a fairytale forest dream. Celebrating their love in a setting draped in hunter green and cream fabrics, their day was perfectly complemented by our lush succulent florals and a warm candle glow, crafting an enchanting woodland ambiance.
Keely was absolutely breathtaking in an off-the-shoulder, long pouf sleeve dress from Essence of Australia. The dress, with its long train, radiated fairytale boho vibes that seemed tailor-made for the forest setting. Her mom played a cherished role in helping her into her gown, adding to the day’s emotion and excitement.
Walking down the aisle solo to meet Dan at the chapel steps was a powerful moment. Dan, dressed in brown pants with a white dress shirt and leather suspenders, was visibly moved, getting choked up at the sight of Keely approaching.
The ceremony was especially meaningful with her dad presiding over the exchange of vows. His tears and heartfelt words about his pride in Keely and his warm welcome of Dan into the family touched everyone present. They chose this significant day to marry because it marked exactly three years since they first found each other, adding another layer of sentiment to their special day.
Keely’s friend was also by her side throughout the day, helping her manage her stunning dress and ensuring she looked perfect in every moment.
Congratulations, Keely and Dan! Your wedding truly captured the essence of a fairytale. Here’s to many years of happiness and love, as magical as the day you said “I do.”
From the Bride: 
We knew each otter going up, Danny is the best friend of my brother so he has been around our family for years. He moved to New York when he was 17 and I hadn’t seen him in years. He came to my house in Cleveland OH on 4th of July weekend to visit with my brother and we’ve been together ever since!
We hung out for a few weeks before he even asked me on a date. He took me to a park where he carved our initials into a tree overlooking a river, and then we got tacos & margs.
Daniel proposed to me, the week before Christmas/my birthday (same day). He took me back to the park where we had our first date and proposed under our tree.
I’ve always known that I wanted to get married in Tennessee, and after visiting last summer we decided this is the perfect location for my fairytale forest wedding!
We are most looking forward to having all of the most important people in our lives together to celebrate our love! Daniel actually chose the date, July 3rd is the day we re-connected as adults and started our journey together.
