Intimate Wedding Ceremony Ideas

Monica Wang Photography

Weddings are entirely personal, and if you desire an intimate setting you can create a simple wedding ceremony that only involves the two of you. A unique group of wedding vendors put together this inspirational shoot that does just that! Using a few easy and elegant details, they created a personal wedding ceremony that included just the bride and groom followed by an elegant reception where they were joined by their closest friends and family.

From Monica Wang Photography:This styled shoot was a collaborated effort from a number of super talented, creative people. The inspiration came from budding spring blooms, feminine touches and, of course, a soft hint of gold. With so many couples opting for large lavish weddings, this celebration is a nice departure and features only the bride and groom for the ceremony and they are later joined with their closest friends and family for the reception. For the ceremony, we created personal hand-written vows by the bride and groom. We wrapped the bride's vows in fragrant jasmine and the groom's vows in leather.

Instead of traditional invitations, guests are welcomed with a decorative fortune cookie on their table place settings and inside is a note that says, "Breaking the news! We're married!" which explains the reason they are there. And the food had to be just as beautiful as it was tasty. We used a vintage bar cart to create a different way to display hor d'oeuvres. We hope that these little details inspire future brides on how beautiful an elopement ceremony and intimate dinner party can be!
