We’ve seen a trend with some of the couples this week. No matter how big or small their wedding, they haven’t stressed over color palettes or decor themes. Same story with these two. Knowing they wanted a small wedding, they splurged on a photo + video package from YEAH! Weddings knowing they’d document their wedding in style. It was important that the day felt unscripted and that they let their surroundings speak for themselves.
The restaurant had a constantly changing seasonal menu, so we didn’t decide on the meal until a few days ahead of time. Likewise, Maudslay State Park was changing so quickly from week to week with the transition from spring to summer that we picked our ceremony site the day before the wedding.
Sweet, simple and true advice… When it comes to planning, rethink the notions about how you’ve always wanted your wedding to be and whether they reflect who you are today, and who you are as a couple.
Couldn’t agree more. That small wedding you’ve been thinking about doesn’t sound so bad now, does it? After you watch the rad video from Wade Koch you’ll be convinced.
