Alison & Dane’s Wedding

Dahl designer Alison Dahl Kelly married Dane Risch on September 10, 2011. Below are some of our favorite pictures from the day (photos by Ingalls Photography). This was truly a homespun wedding—Alison designed all of the bridal party dresses making a custom style for each maid. Together, with help from their friends and family, the couple made much of the decor and elements themselves, from the invitations to the place mats, it was a whimsical and spirited event…
