As we all know by now, weddings amidst COVID-19 look significantly different than weddings have in the past. And I’m not just talking about size! There is enforced social distancing, masks being worn, and hand sanitizer galore, just to name a few. But of course, the biggest change we find a majority of couples having to face is the size of their guest list. With large gatherings no longer an option for many, brides and grooms are choosing to either postpone their wedding until they can have a big celebration or they are opting to go small and host a micro wedding.
So, what is a micro wedding? By definition, a micro wedding generally consists of 20 or fewer guests. And because of the smaller guest list, micro weddings tend to be more intimate! In the handful we have already photographed this year, it has been really special to witness these celebrations in which all the guests sincerely know one another, the bride and groom get to spend a significant amount of time with each guest in attendance, and those gathered experience sharing a meal around one big table.
When Cherry Blossom Events told us they were planning a styled shoot with Chance Productions to inspire those now wanting (or having!) to plan a mirco wedding, we were 100% IN! While we don’t think big weddings are “going away,” it was been really beautiful to be a part of something new and different, too! This luxurious yet intimate backyard celebration with red clay and apricot tones, stunning wooden arches, and pops of ivy green will no doubt leave you feeling ready to plan (or attend!) your next mirco wedding : ) Enjoy!!!
