No two weddings are alike. While some couples prefer to celebrate their union in a huge ballroom with hundreds of guests, others feel themselves drawn to a more intimate setting in a much smaller wedding venue with less guests.
As wedding photographers, we absolutely adore micro weddings. It is something so special and magical about having a wedding celebration focused entirely on the couple themselves surrounded by their most important people in a quite intimate and relaxed setting.
When planning an intimate wedding or micro wedding in Philadelphia or nearby, there are a few things to keep in mind:
1. It is important to find a venue with a space that is designated for the amount of guests you are going to have. For example, if you are going to have around 15-20 people, you want to make sure that the venue's ceremony and reception space won't look empty once everyone is seated.
2. Invest in one special thing for your wedding. Since the less amount of guests, a smaller venue, less amount of floral decor etc. can help cut down the cost of the event significantly, some brides love the idea of splurging on something expensive and special, that will make you very happy and excited. For example, you might be able to afford some exclusive floral decor, or a wedding gown of your wildest dreams, or hire an excellent wedding photographer who can create some magical photographs even in the simplest wedding setting.
3. Set aside enough time for your wedding day portraits and for the entire day overall. If you are having a small intimate wedding in Philadelphia or nearby, it doesn't mean that it will require only 2-3 hours. Your wedding photographer can still document some very special moments of you both getting ready, the first look if you are doing one, your wedding ceremony, photographs with you family after the ceremony and so much more. Just remember, that photographs are equally important regardless of the size of the wedding.
