Katie + Dan were married in a romantic garden out in Elk Grove, CA surrounded by their closest friends + families. And when I say surrounded, I mean it literally. Their guests sat in a circle surrounding their alter to represent the equality in importance of each guest + to represent the equality they value so much in their marriage. They broke bread together then fed their parents, who then fed the guest next to them, + so on until everyone had shared that moment with the couple. At the end they were announced for the first time with their brand name last name, Keemahill, which combined both family name to pay tribute to the people that raised them. It was the sweetest, most equalizing + supportive ceremony I've witnessed + I feel so honored to have experienced such a special union.
The vows, toasts + special speeches spoke so highly of Dan + Katie, their inclusiveness + high values of joy + family. They danced the night away with each other, Dan shared an epic dance off with his mom instead of a tradition slow dance + then they partied with their favorite people until they were ready to head off together. Congratulations to them both, over + over again.
