YOUR WEDDING, YOUR WAY // Liz + Aaron were a year ahead of the “Covid” trend of saying your “I dos” now in an intimate setting + then partying later with a larger group of friends + family. A format that we are extremely excited more couples are embracing as it truly creates a completely different, more relaxed vibe + atmosphere resulting in a less stressful, more meaningful + ultimately less bank-breaking celebration. Couples are much less restricted in time, budget, logistics + location in this type of wedding scenario + therefore, have the opportunity to say yes to so many more of their wants.
These two chose to say their “I dos” in the most picturesque, touching intimate ocean-side ceremony with only their family present to witness. A couple of weeks later, they threw one hell of a party for all of their friends + extended family at The Settlement Building which we were so lucky to be a part of. Unlike a more traditional wedding day, Liz + Aaron were not pressed for time, which allowed them the opportunity to visit + celebrate with every single guest + even sneak away for some moments of alone time. It was well planned, yet casual which had everyone at ease, laughing + simply enjoying every minute.
Although we are very saddened that so many of our couples’ original wedding plans have been disrupted due to the pandemic, we’re very excited for couples who are moving forward with a similar plan to stick with their legal ceremony for this year + hosting the big “party” next year. We are firm believers that everything happens for a reason + that everything will turn out exactly the way it was meant to. Plus the ceremony location options for smaller groups are endless… it’s so refreshing to be planning ceremonies in locations that are not possible with larger guest counts!! Also, this wedding is proof that a few strategically placed statement decor + floral pieces go a long way. All captured beautifully by Shari + Mike.
