There are those weddings that we love and then there are the ones that we go bananas for and this is definitely one of those banana weddings. It is the perfect combination of laid back charm and romance and can we please talk about the groom’s shoes? Well done sir. Ashley O’Dell was the woman behind the camera and captured this lovely Massachusetts affair to perfection. Between the beautiful farm setting, the gorgeous couple, the unique, hand-crafted details, and the interpretive first dance, seriously…what is not to love? And don’t forget, the gallery has even more images for you to pour over.
Melissa and Danny live in New York, but came up to Massachusetts to host their incredible wedding on Danny’s family farm in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts on July 24, 2010. They also had the best first dance I have ever seen. Both being involved in theatre, a choreographer friend helped them put something together, and it really paid off! It was a lovely performance, opposed to the first dance waddle, as I like to call it. The bridesmaid dresses were also custom designed for each woman, to match their own style and personality.
You’ll also notice they had a logo of sorts printed on their cocktail napkins, this is the proposal image of the two of them, as Danny played “Feels Like Home” by Randy Newman on the ukulele.
