Let’s take a look at simplicity done right. Photorapher Mariel Hannah shares the beautiful elegant fall backyard wedding of bride and groom Frankie and Danika, who wanted to combine the elegance of a ballroom style reception with the tranquility and natural elements of an outdoor ceremony. Thanks to help from Shannon Hough Events, they accomplished this goal seamlessly. Using a spacious tent to provide shelter for the guests’ dining and dancing experience, they were able to revel in the sunshine and greenery of their beautifully landscaped their home. A checkerboard floor and black chandeliers provided the furnishings of an elegant ballroom scene. Candles galore were the cherry on top of the cake for a tranquil feel to the event. Speaking of cakes – their cake is a masterpiece that can’t be missed – tiers of round cake iced in a way to look like rustic wood, with a centerpiece of burgundy flowers spilling over the sides! All in all, Mariel Hannah Photography provides our readers with perfect inspiration for a simple, elegant fall wedding utilizing burgundy and gold as highlight colours set against a black and white background.

From The Bride… This day exceeded my expectations. It was easily one of the best days of our lives. She captured the image I had always imagined for my special day. I wanted a very organic and elegant feel. At first it sounded strange to achieve, although she put it all together perfectly. Our day was extremely elegant with the black and white design and the black chandeliers but also very organic and natural with the farm tables and greenery. My favorite part of the whole design was all of the greenery and candles everywhere. The candles brought a calm elegance to the atmosphere, which I absolutely loved. All in all the design she and all of the vendors who contributed provided for an unbelievable experience that my husband and I will never forget. Special thanks to Mariel Hannah and Patrick Ang for capturing all the beautiful moments that we will cherish forever.
