Melanie and Ian: A Colorful and Fun Wedding at the Forest Theatre and Great Room in Chapel Hill

Melanie and Ian live in Indianapolis but, wanted to celebrate their marriage in Melanie’s home town of Chapel Hill. The Forrest Theatre provided the perfect intimate setting for their summer wedding. The best part of the ceremony was their adorable ring bearer, Ziggy, running down the stairs when it was time to exchange rings. Needless to say he stole the show!  After the romantic ceremony in the forest guests headed to the Great Room at Top of the Hill for a backyard inspired reception. Melanie and Ian wanted to create a feel that was elegant enough for such a special day but, relaxed enough for all of their guests to feel comfortable and just have fun. And with some festive market lights and classic white linens combined with colorful and eclectic flowers it was just perfect!

We hope you enjoy these images from AJ Dunlap Photography and get inspired for your own big day!
