October 20, 2020
At the end of September I had the distinct pleasure of attending an editorial shoot designed entirely around the idea of a micro-wedding! What is a micro-wedding you might ask? It’s a wedding that is just as elegant and detailed as a larger (100+ guest) wedding, but with a much smaller (say 20-40 people) guest count!
A micro-wedding may seem like a new concept in the wake of COVID, but it’s actually a very common approach to weddings in many cultures and traditions!
If 2020 has taught me anything, it’s that any size of wedding can feel elegant, special, unique, intimate, and most importantly, meaningful. In some ways, weddings these days have shifted their focus on the guest count more than the matrimony. And opting for a micro-wedding is an opportunity to strip away so many distractions on your wedding day to allow you to focus on the true purpose of the celebration.
This particular editorial shoot was inspired by the best parts of summer in the Missouri countryside. Think: blooming tallgrass, crisp refreshing lemonade, fresh berry pies, and stunning pink sunsets. Is there anything better?
Every aspect of the day centered around, well, the circle. From the rings to the ceremony, to the reception table, this recurring theme paid homage to the never-ending connectedness created by a circle. And I can promise you that everyone is going to want a circular reception table after they see this one!
Check out all of my favorite moments captured at this inspirational shoot!

At a circular ceremony, every seat is the best seat in the house! I love the halo of flowers embracing the couple in the middle.
No cocktail hour is complete without freshly popped champagne! In this case it was adorned with delicious berries to add a little extra pop of flavor to the celebration.
Circular table: party of 20! No detail was left unturned on this gorgeous tablescape!
to our amazing hosts for dreaming up this shoot! Every corner was filled to the brim with inspiration!
