Before the pandemic swept through the world, micro-weddings were just beginning to become all the rage for the new 2020-2021 wedding season. These weddings are more intimate and meaningful as they only involve those nearest and dearest to the bride and groom. As the name suggests, a micro-wedding is an intimate affair with typically no more than 50 guests. It has all the same components of a large wedding, but only on a much smaller scale.
However, a micro-wedding was not the original plan for Melissa and Harrison, but this eager couple went all in with the COVID-19 scheme. They invited a dozen loved ones to witness them exchange vows at Mizner Country Club on an early summer evening. But they also live-streamed the event so friends and family from all over the globe would not miss a moment.
The bride donned a full princess wedding ball gown and carried a French-wrapped bouquet of roses and hydrangea. Her groom looked dapper sporting a coordinating rose and orchid boutonniere. The color palette was elegant with white, cream, and blush tones with silver accents.
Roses, hydrangea, matthiola, dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids, mixed foliage, and curly willow branches made for a gorgeous and whimsical chuppah. The traditional religious structure was also detailed with crystals and wrapped in sheer organza fabric. After the ceremony, everyone met in the club’s One Mile Bar & Grille where an array of floral arrangements and floating candles lined the dining table for a magnificent celebration.
Coronavirus and all, this wedding may have been micro in size, but certainly macro in experience. The only thing contagious at this event was love.
