Serving All of North Carolina
My absolute favorite intimate wedding was about 5 years ago. We had two sisters reach out, saying that they were both planning to get married the same year. Their dad had given them each the same amount of money for their wedding, and they could choose to supplement the budget with more money if needed, use a portion of the money for the wedding and the rest for a downpayment on a house, car, etc.
Sister #1 took the money from her dad, and she and her fiance supplemented the rest. They had 200+ guests in a beautiful ballroom with a band and literally all the bells and whistles.
Because Sister #2 knew she would see her whole family a few months earlier at her sister’s wedding, she opted instead to celebrate only with those that she was the closest with. She took about 1/2 of the money from her dad, planned a wedding for 19 guests in her backyard, and used the rest to put a downpayment on a house.
Rather than spending the day going table to table spending 5 minutes talking with each guest while the day passes in a blur, they were able to remain fully present and enjoy the day. It remains one of my favorite wedding celebrations to date!

A: I LOVE how they can be intentionally intimate and it allows you to make the day more personalized to the couple and their family.
Q: Tell us about your favorite elopement!
A: This past December, one of my COVID couples chose to go to Beaufort, NC to get married after 4 reschedules of their original wedding. Due to the fact that their parents are elderly and live out of state, they were only going to have 4 guests in attendance. Without the bride’s knowledge, we contacted her dream venue and her closest family and friends and arranged for them to get married at their dream location while all of her family and friends tuned in via Zoom. She was completely surprised and it was the perfect example of how elopements can still be highly personalized and incredibly special.
