Kiley & Dan: The Wedding

Today: Their Wedding Day

Kiley and Dan's wedding was so magical! This couple really made their wedding day personal. They got married on a piece of property that's been in Kiley's family for decades, had a dessert bar filled with homemade goodies that included sweets from Dan's Indian heritage, and found different ways to have both their family and friends involved throughout the day. They also found ways to incorporate their personalities into their wedding, like serving communion to their guests and having tacos for dinner. It was a beautiful wedding that I had the pleasure of coordinating. The couple's love not only for each other, but for their guests, was apparent from beginning to end.

Enjoy the Merriotts' day through these photos by photographer Drew Osumi, with help from Sam Maller.
