Micro Weddings and Elopements
The year of smaller events
According to various wedding sources, the average wedding size hovers around 130 guests. With the onset of the pandemic, many couples have been faced with making the decision to either postpone their event completely, or scale the guest counts back drastically. With all of the uncertainty the last 12 months have brought, we know one thing that remains true: weddings of every size are meaningful, and they are certainly beautiful.
Since we prefer to see the glass half full, and we are fans of making lemonade from lemons, we have pulled together a few of our favorite small wedding ideas and a few images from the past year of micro weddings and elopements. After all, with a smaller guest count comes the opportunity to spend more on details. While our barn is equipped to comfortably accommodate large events, or provide ample space for social distancing, the property can also feel intimate and quaint in a few different ways that lends itself beautifully to even the most micro of weddings and elopements. While nobody could have predicted what was to come in 2020, we now look back on the smaller weddings that we have had the honor of hosting, and realize that the love stories of our couples who have had to be so flexible during this season will remain with us forever. Speaking of which, here are a few of our favorite micro wedding and elopement details from the last few months.
TERRENCE + TOYA
This beautiful couple chose to elope with just their mothers in attendance while streaming the wedding for friends and family. The flowers and the details from this day were just perfect and their >> gallery says it all. We loved having the opportunity to be included in their love story.

KATIE + STEVEN
When we saw the images from Katie and Steven’s wedding, we instantly realized how a few close friends and family members can make a wedding feel so complete. They were on top of the world and you can feel that through this picture and their >> gallery. Photo: Maddy Williams Photography
One thing we gained during the pandemic was time to consider new ideas, and as a result, we decided to add bistro lighting to our front portico. This lighting has been the backdrop to so many wonderful photos already and we can’t wait to see more people enjoy them in the future. Another favorite image from Katie and Steven’s micro wedding.
ERICA + PAUL
The year wouldn’t be complete without documenting one of the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony designs for another micro wedding that took place. Socially distanced chairs and fresh air were not a problem as close friends and family took in the most gorgeous flower arch as they waited for the couple to make their way down the aisle. You can see more of their event >> here.
