The Mini Wedding

Planning Experience

Why an all-inclusive mini wedding?

Mini Wedding  /  Massive Experience 

It's easy!  An all-inclusive wedding experience means the work is done for you. All of the vendors have been vetted & negotiated with & all of the essential pieces to a great ceremony & reception are included. Buy a dress & a suit & show up ready to celebrate in style!

It's economical!  I have always believed that you can have a beautiful and memorable wedding without spending the equivalent of a bachelor's degree. Mini weddings make achieving the goal of having a highly stylized event for a fraction of the cost possible.

It's different AF!  Am I the only one who can get burnt out of the *insert engaged couple* wedding? Mini weddings create a totally unique vibe for you and your guests.

It's more fun!  IDK about you, but the idea of trying to host 250 people I wouldn't miss if they weren't there anyway would stress me TF out. Keeping your guest list defined to only those people who you consider to be your life MVPs will allow you the leisure on your wedding day to truly connect & celebrate with your guests.

The Mini AirBNB Experience

Imagine waking up on your wedding morning in a cozy AirBNB to the sounds of birds chirping outside your window, a soft breeze blowing, and the smell of bacon emanating from the kitchen. 

 

It's a slow morning with your immediate family, a delicious breakfast, and a hot cup of coffee. After a warm bath, you pop a bottle of Prosseco and you and your best friend begin getting ready for the day.

Your first look is private and unrushed as you take the time to breathe each other in.

At 5:30pm, guests begin arriving and you walk out to process through a beautifully manicured lawn.

After the ceremony, photos are taken & you and your guests sit down at a beautifully styled table for a family-style meal prepared by a personal chef.

After dinner is finished you dance the night away under the stars.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

The Mini Industrial Experience

Imagine waking up on your wedding morning in your apartment next to your soon to be spouse. You look up at them, with your head resting on their chest and ask "Excited?"

 

You walk to your kitchen in your pajamas and start a French Press of your favorite roast when you read a text that says "Here."

You let in your best friend and talk with anticipation about the day ahead. Your fiance kisses you on the forehead and says they'll see you later as they head out for a mid-day beer with their friends. You pop a bottle of bubbly and begin getting ready.

You spend the day unrushed and taking in every moment of that meets you.

A 7:30pm candlelit ceremony in a cozy loft sets the mood as you marry your best friend.

After photos, you meet your guests on the dance floor as they enjoy a cocktail style reception with dancing, apps, and drinks.

After the party ends, you walk to a nearby dive bar for a late-night snack, karaoke; and to continue the celebration into the night.
