It has occurred to me while writing for this site that I have forgotten that my husband and I have a very small and intimate wedding thirty plus years ago. We traveled to a friend’s home, spent the weekend with close and loving people while we created things for our wedding, laughing, visiting and enjoying each moment. There was a minister, a cake, flowers, photographer and even a wedding dinner and dance. We had chosen that path because for us at the time the alternatives each seemed either too complicated, expensive, or simply so stressful trying to please others. Life is interesting, here we are now, facilitating that experience for more couples with the same mind set.
I recently read on a San Diego CA photographer’s website, Paige Nelson Photography, a list of “Reasons to have an Intimate Wedding”. We are sharing a portion of her blog with our visitors because it is on point. This is not to say that couples who have decided on the more traditional weddings are anything but to be congratulated on their choice. Just a different viewpoint for those who are still formatting a plan of action.
