What we hoped would be a Spring/Summer wedding season filled with jam-packed dance floors and crowded dinner tables… is now going to be a bit more low key. But you know what?! We’re okay with that too, because at the end of the day it’s not about those things. Your wedding day is about making that commitment and promise to your partner; your best friend and your love.
Elopements and smaller events can still feel just as special and emotional as a “big” wedding day. If you’re still trying to decide if it should just be the two of you or a handful of family/friends, read more on our other blog post here. We talk a bit more about the pros to each style of wedding.
