With Nearly Every Detail Changed, This Intimate Wild Flower Saskatchewan Wedding Included Only 10 Guests!
If you can’t bear the thought of waiting another year or even another minute to marry the love of your life, planning a micro-wedding this year might just be the perfect option for you!
A bonus of downsizing your wedding? Other parts of your wedding budget can get a little financial boost. In this case, Callie and Brett hired Bold Impressions to design an enchanting white tent reception space for an intimate meal with friends and family. Photographer Amy Creech captured every wild flower filled detail of this intimate micro-wedding experience in Moose Jaw, Saskachewan.
From the Couple:
What were your original wedding plans and how did they change?
We originally planned to have a big wedding in a beautiful Valley on the outskirts of the town we live in. We dreamt of inviting 200 family and friends, having bridesmaids and groomsmen, a ceremony, a big meal and a bigger party to follow. But covid swept through and our plans came to a halt. We couldn’t bare the idea of waiting another year to get married, so we made the decision to have a small ceremony this year. It was a difficult decision for us to make, but we are so, so happy we went through with having our wedding this year. We changed nearly every detail of our wedding, we decided to invited only 10 people, our parents and siblings only, no bridal party, we changed our schedule for the day and the location of wedding. It was different then we ever imagined but it was intimate and perfect.
What was the downsizing process like for you?
We are hoping to have a party to celebrate our marriage with family and friends next summer. We were able to move our reservations for the location and the DJ easy and the catering company agreed to do a midnight snack for us. Our postponing process was very smooth. Every business was more than understanding about the circumstances, we are all experiencing this together.
Do you have any advice for couples currently looking at downsizing their wedding?
The best will come to those who make the best of the things that come. We never imagined we would be getting married durning a global pandemic and at times it was hard on our hearts. But this year we got married and more than anything that’s what mattered to us.
From the Couple:
What was your favourite moment of the day?
Our favourite moment of our wedding day was having a meal with our family after the ceremony. The music was good, the meal was great, the company was better, and best of all, we were married! The moment was so intimate and slow. It was just us, in our few first hours of marriage with the best people, eating the best meal.
What was your favourite decor or styling element of the day?
Our favourite element of our wedding day was the styling. The vineyard chairs and flower garland at the ceremony. The table and chandelier at the reception. It was everything we imagined and more!
From the Photographer:
What was your favourite part of the day?
My favourite part of Callie and Brett’s wedding was when Callie asked Brett’s son if she could adopt him as part of the ceremony. Everyone was crying!
What made this wedding special?
The emphasis on family and how close they all were was definitely what made this wedding so special.
Do you have any advice for couples having to postpone, or having to downsize their wedding?
Take the opportunity to invest a bit more money in the details, such as a beautiful tablescape design like Brett and Callie’s!
