A Backyard Micro Wedding
What was to be a wedding of 230 people at Liberty Warehouse in Brooklyn, because of COVID was turned into a backyard micro wedding at the bride’s childhood home in Connecticut.
The guest list was cut to 34 and the lovely backyard became the backdrop and venue. We lovingly worked with the bride and groom on a larger invitation suite, but also pivoted to create something more scaled back for the smaller wedding, but just as beautiful.
We took inspiration for the envelope liner from the bride’s embellished detail on the puffy sleeves of her wedding dress designed by Lihi Hod. Simple, graphic text was used in black and white for a striking and classic design.
We also made custom menus for the intimate reception which included the floral detail from the invitation and the bride’s dress.
The floral theme was carried through to the dresses of her close-knit bridal party who all wore a different flowery pattern.
We worked very closely with the bride and her mother on every detail of the original invitation and this micro wedding version. The at-home wedding allowed for a beautiful day with time spent getting ready at her childhood home as well as time for her groom and his groomsmen to walk along the water in Riverside, a place that the couple visits frequently. The bride said it was a small, intimate ceremony, but she wouldn’t have changed a thing. This wedding goes to show you, love is not cancelled.
