The trend in weddings are leaning to more intimate affairs. Enter the micro wedding. What exactly is a micro wedding you may be wondering. Generally speaking, a micro wedding is a shortened celebration of marriage. Think less guests and possibly a shorter duration. And while some things may be less, you are upping the intimacy and can focus on what is really important to you. Basically a micro wedding is a wonderful cross of an elopement and a bigger traditional wedding!
When I first spoke with Cynthia, I knew I wanted to work with her before I had even met her and her fiancé Chris in person. We had so many things in common, from being in love with thrift store shopping and a small business owner. Hearing her ideas for her micro wedding and the love she had for her fiancé, I knew that this was something I had to be apart of.
Cynthia and Chris had the most beautiful day for their micro wedding! The ceremony was to start at 11 am. I knew the lighting was going to be a huge factor in their photos as their ceremony spot was in full direct sun. We got just the right amount of haziness that helped to softly diffuse the light. I really do love how the harsher lighting in the pictures just adds this extra amount of drama. I know so many photographers are afraid to shoot in full sun, but we embraced it on this day.
The vendors for this micro wedding were wonderful. The Barn at Sunny Meadow Farm has been so elegantly restored. The views from the property are so stunning as well. The caterer for their wedding put on this gorgeous charcuterie spread that Chris and Cynthia’s family and friends could graze at their leisure. The florals were also completely stunning and all done by Cynthia’s stepmother.
