Earlier this year we had the honor of joining Hannan and Mia for their marriage celebration at Hotel Hershey. Hannan grew up in Hershey and Mia and her family were from Chicago. They met in Philadelphia and the rest is history.
Family traveled from all over the world to be a part of their days long celebration. It began in Chicago where Hannan and Mia officially tied the knot and ended with a huge valima reception a week later at the Hotel Hershey where Lilly and I got to join in on the fun.
There was glamour from Mia’s stunning jewelry to the gorgeous sea of colors worn by the ladies in attendance. The decor and details were amazingly coordinated by David of Mx2 Event Design as he transformed the ballroom into a room fit for royalty. The Hotel Hershey also provided the stunning outdoor backdrop for Hannan and Mia’s portrait session just before the celebration began.
One of our favorite parts was when Hannan’s mother and sisters were joined by ladies from their family for a traditional dance. And as they pulled Mia into the mix with them the crowd swarmed to the dance floor and the seats at the tables were all left empty. This group new how to celebrate and we couldn’t help but move to the music, too.
Not only were they all the sweetest family to work with, but it was such an amazing experience to immerse ourselves into their culture. The vendor team were rockstars, too, and we could not thank them all enough (scroll to the bottom to check them out!). What a truly beautiful and inspiring day it was at the Hotel Hershey!
