2020 might be in our past now (and TG for that!), but the intimate wedding trend will be sticking around for sooo much longer - and saying that we're 'here for it' is a bold face lie, because truthfully, we'd show up for it time after time after time #ForeverFans, fam! And a spring rendition of this scaled-down type of wedding soiree? It feels so fresh, so new, and so much fun, and by the looks of this warmer-weather wedding - it IS.
If you happen to love ice cream, champagne, and a bride glow so bright, yellow, warm, and fluffy you'd think this stunning Mrs. was a brand new baby chick, popped fresh from the egg (I mean, what bride wouldn't want to feel that way?!), you'll want to keep scrolling to see more photos by Stephanie Lynn. Couture Events planned every detail of this wedding and Moonlight Floral Designs created all of the incredible florals you'll see throughout. Sam Bennett Media was there to film as this dream day came to life at San Diego's Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. All the images are in the full gallery, so be sure to click through and read on to hear from Krystel Stacey, Couture Event's Creative Director and Owner, on 5 tips for an endlessly-beautiful springtime tête-à-tête.
5 Tips for an intimate SPRING Wedding!
After deciding on your color palette and general style, PUT A TWIST ON IT.
In this case, the couple really loved ice cream and champagne, so we really wanted to highlight their favorite things and make sure they were the stand outs of the wedding.
Timing makes all the difference (financially and when it comes to the vibes of your vows)
Brunch or sunset dinner? Thinking about this before you begin thinking about venues will make all the difference. We love the idea of an intimate brunch and sometimes it’s almost half the cost + a pool party afterwards. Sounds pretty dreamy right? Brunch might be more fun, but a sunset dinner will be more elegant.
Lighting is EVERYTHING
Lighting is the single best way to transform any venue from ordinary to extraordinary! Especially if you decide on an evening wedding, where you can work with candles, market lights, chandeliers. OH MY! All of these will contribute to an incredible ambiance for your guests to enjoy.
It’s time to get luxurious, since you'll no longer be inviting your Great Aunt Sally or your 4th cousin. Family and friends are now more understanding about keeping weddings more intimate. What does this mean for you? You can have less guests and create a more luxury experience for those who do attend.
Greenery is back in!
And we never thought it left, tbh! We love the use of greenery at ceremonies to make things look more lush and full. USE A TON OF IT as an inexpensive way to create WOW factor!
