"Good things come in small packages"

"Micro Weddings" downsizing your weddings in 2020 due to the Coronavirus


It is May, 2020 and with the Covid-19 situation affecting the wedding industry greatly many clients with wedding scheduled in the spring or early summer of 2020 are searching for ways to keep their wedding date and at the same time comply with state reopening guidelines for group size limitations. Some couples are taking the route of having a smaller wedding ceremony elopement with a limited number of family and friends on their original wedding date and moving their larger wedding to a time later in 2020 or 2021. 

Marilyn and Benjamin's wedding is a perfect example for the current situation so I thought I'd post it to give couples a feel for what a "micro" or downsized smaller wedding, wedding ceremony, elopement would look like. Their wedding was small by many wedding standards.  It was made up of a first look, portraits of the bride and groom, wedding ceremony attended by a small group of family followed by family portraits.  Their wedding was 2.5 hours in length. They received over  500 photos in color and a dual collection in black and white with 1000 photos in total.  Although their wedding was only 2.5 hours long,  from their photos you can see  a lot happened in that time and I was able to document their wedding day and its many joyful and beautiful moments which can be looked back on for years and remembered through their photos, prints and album.   From their expressions and photos you can see their was no shorting of Love and Magic shared by all. 

To help couples navigate through this difficult time, I put together a Coronavirus elopement/downsized wedding package below.  If you have had to change/cancel or postpone your wedding feel free to contact me to see if this package is a good fit for you.  This special is for a limited time only. 


2020 Coronavirus Wedding Ceremony Elopement Package Special
