What if I told you small weddings are not only still a thing but they are a leading "thing"? That's right. Small weddings, intimate weddings, elopements, whatever title you wish to bestow on your small gathering of important people to support you on your wedding day...it is certainly still happening.
Weddings in 2021 were all over the place, we had moments where we could not host the big weddings in the way we had originally planned and this lead couples to shift their wedding day plans, even their venue, guest list and destinations. While yes, many, many wedding couples held tight to their original plans and simply pushed the date forward waiting until restrictions lifted and they could go ahead as planned, some couples, they just didn't want to wait to begin their married lives. Whichever side of the wait not wait wedding world you ended up on, it's okay! I sincerely hope you loved every aspect of your wedding day.
The number of weddings I have done so far in 2021 has more than doubled what I normally do. In a typical year I officiate around 100 weddings, weddings of all sizes and destinations. This year however, I have officiated over 250 weddings with the majority of those being small weddings right here in Holly. While I don't always know why couples have chosen do marry they way they do, I can tell you, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter why you chose to host a small wedding or to elope to an up north city and simply sign your marriage license to make it legal, let me repeat IT DOES NOT MATTER. What does matter is your joy, your sanity and your peace knowing you made the best wedding plans for you.
I see the small wedding trend pushing forward and continuing to be a wonderful choice for many couples yet to come. There are so many reasons to choose small weddings. Less stress, less price, less time planning and more time living your married lives.
I can tell you that I put the same amount of love and care into a small wedding or signing that I do into the larger weddings. Love will always be at the center of every wedding I officiate.
Love stories are my passion
