A BLACK TIE AFFAIR
Pairing down your wedding day plans to accommodate the restrictions and mandates of a pandemic can be tricky. For Megan & Steven, the worry and wonder came to a halt once their wedding day arrived! This gorgeous micro-wedding captured by Livi Shaw Photography serves as the perfect inspiration for creating a memorable celebration after plans have changed.
From the bride, Megan: "I couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect day! After having a huge change in plans due to [the pandemic] I was a bit worried about how I would feel on the day of our "Micro-Wedding" but it exceeded my expectations by far. The day was a dream from start to finish and everyone had an excellent time. All of the craziness that went along with planning fell away as soon as I was sipping mimosas with my best friends on the morning of my wedding day. We were lucky to have a beautiful, sunny day and truly everything went off without a hitch! As stressful as the planning process was, it worked out better than I could have hoped for and I couldn't be more happy to have had my wedding guest list of 50 people."
Megan's advice to future brides: "Don't sweat the small stuff! Nobody is paying attention to the small decor items or other pieces as much as you are." For brides on the fence about postponing vs. planning a smaller event, Megan says "Do it! I was so worried I would feel like I missed out on my dream wedding but the day was still an absolute dream! A smaller wedding really gave me a chance to enjoy the company and appreciate each part of the day."
We can't wait to share more of Megan & Steven's wedding story in our first edition of our print magazine, but couldn't resist posting a sneak peek here first!
