Micro weddings & elopements are trending.
Virginia is for lovers and for stunning weddings, specifically here in Loudoun county. But how is the wedding industry having to change due to covid19? In Loudoun County, Micro weddings are on the rise. Local wedding venues and vendors are working hard to pivot their businesses to accommodate to the social distancing and limited number of guests allowed for special events like weddings. The micro wedding includes a more limited guest list but doesn’t lack on details and luxury.
Being a wedding photographer, the shift to Loudoun County micro weddings or elopements isn’t a huge leap. The love, emotion, & excitement is still present in abundance to capture on your wedding day whether you have as many as 300 guests or no guests at all. The difference in photographing your micro wedding is the focus on the couple and their intimate guest list during a touching toast, instead of the possibility of a jam packed dance floor breaking it down. It’s sweet, genuine, and touching.
2020 continues and COVID-19 continues to threaten the large scale weddings, that many couples have been planning right here in Loudoun. However, we have come together as a community to create many micro wedding and elopement options accessible for couples who still want to get married this year, which I think is fantastic. The Loudoun County wedding community is strong supportive and there to help our couples celebrate love.
With photographing micro weddings and elopements I have created new package options. As well as add on extras dedicated just to these small intimate weddings. These packages also come in at a lower investment than a traditional large weddings experience. The micro wedding experience isn’t as long of a day but your coverage is still packed with high quality gorgeous photos. Photos that you will be able to share with your friends and family later! One of the other popular add on options is to include my videographer. I even have a live stream option so your family & friends can attend from afar! Isn’t technology awesome?!
There is also to option to do a more adventurous micro wedding, maybe get married at the top of bear’s den or along the river? With a limited guest list we can create a very unique experience. Contact me to learn all about your options.
