During this Pandemic, the shift in the wedding industry has been real! And not necessarily in a bad way either! For those embracing something smaller in the Hudson Valley, the shift for smaller weddings has developed into something beautiful too!
Yes, you need to restrict the number of guests who attend! But for those who want an intimate wedding, or an elopement, going smaller wedding also means new opportunities! It means you can personalize your wedding differently! And in a way that still reflects who you are without compromising quality!
Who says you need to spend a ton of money on formal centerpieces when you can develop an intimate table for you and your guests?! Forget oversized centerpieces with no character and try embracing smaller scale that is both elegant and whimsical?
Your wedding ceremony is a perfect time to showcase that emotion as you potentially recite vows, have friends and family join in on the fun, and/or do things just a bit differently.
And not for nothing, having a smaller guest count usually results in ceremonies being more intimate and emotional as you say your ‘I do’s in front of only a handful of guests. There’s something to be said by having only your closest peeps there!
Forget the timelines! And forget the long list of formals shots! You and your wedding photographer can develop a custom wedding experience that captures you both in an artistic way!
How often will you actually have a chance to spend as much time taking portraits?! Most traditional weddings means having to stick to strict timing! When you go small, you also gain the gift of flexibility! So enjoy it!
