The Benefits of a Vermont or Upstate New York Micro Wedding
There are so many reasons to have a smaller, micro wedding in Vermont or Upstate New York , especially with the social distance and uncertainty of 2021 due to the Covid pandemic. Here are just a few:
A perfect way to celebrate with a small group of people! – It doesn’t mean that your wedding day is less important or less special.
Less stress - There is definitely a lot less stress when planning a Vermont or New York micro wedding and with our complete planning service we can arrange the entire event for you.
More time for those awesome photos - SmallerVermont and New York micro weddings are a lot less hurried and a lot more laid back than a big event and this allows for a super fun, relaxed and awesome romance photo session of just the two of you, without the worry of missing the cocktail party or leaving your guests.
Free up the budget – Cutting down a guest count for your Vermont or Upstate New York micro wedding also frees up the budget so that couples can invest in areas that are more important to them. The catering difference between a guest list of 35 and one of 150 (on a $65 per person food and beverage fee) is about $7500.
More quality time with an intimate group of people – There is no doubt a small micro wedding is a lot more romantic and intimate than a big event. You have more time to visit with your guests and each other and these "micro moments" will be a lot more precious than a fleeting greeting as the two of you try and "work the room" on your wedding day.
Awesome Vermont and Upstate New York Micro Wedding Venues
From elegant mansions to rustic barns and actual working farms, Vermont and Upstate New York offer some amazing micro wedding venues. Pictured above is Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home in Manchester, Vermont and it is one of my favorite large and micro wedding venues for my couples that are looking for the splendor of an English Country House, formal gardens and a romantic setting for those fine art editorial wedding photos worthy of a page in Vogue or Country Life magazine.
There are also so many rustic barns for those laid back micro weddings and they lend themselves more to the candid, documentary style of wedding photography, although I always photograph all my weddings in both styles, as those candid moments are the most precious, but those "wow" editorial ones look great in a wedding album.
