Working with John and Judy was a blast! The more I got to know them, the more obvious their authentic, love story was. I also admired the modern and minimalistic style that they chose for their micro wedding. After reading this blog post you will learn three key tips to styling a modern and minimalistic micro wedding.
Planning a wedding during 2020 has been a challenge for all of my couples. Choosing the right mindset and perspective about how to navigate so many unknowns is what made the difference in experience. John posted a beautiful message the day after the wedding. It exemplifies exactly how perspective is the key to choosing joy amidst such a hectic year.
2020 has been a wild year. From dealing with the pandemic to the most important election of our lifetime, there were times when it felt like this world would spiral to oblivion. If there is anything that I learned from this experience, it’s that no matter how relentless things may be, you always have the choice to make the right decision in every aspect of your life. Your voice and your actions will prevail, because there is no other way.
Despite all the challenges this year, I was still able to marry the woman of my dreams. We had to navigate around every obstacle, every roadblock. We ultimately decided we wouldn’t let anything slow us down because we understood how precious every moment we have is in this one life we get. It meant not being able to celebrate with many of our closest family and friends, but we felt your presence because you are the reasons why we are who we are. We can’t wait to celebrate with you when it is safe to do so.” – John
Choosing a Modern Venue
The best thing you can do to set the tone and style for your wedding is choosing a venue that already has those attributes. The Novelty Hill Venue is the perfect choice for a modern and minimalistic micro wedding venue. The huge, wood beams paired with the large cement walls create the perfect scene for a modern venue. My favorite aesthetic about this venue is the bright red wall that is used as a backdrop during the ceremony.
Modern and Minimalistic Wedding Dress
One of the most photographed aspects of every wedding is the bride of course! Whatever aesthetic you choose for your wedding, having a dress that accentuates that style will make the pictures even more aligned. Judy chose a chic, modern dress that perfectly matched the bold wedding venue at Novelty Hill. The princess cut and subtle sleeves were excellent accents to the overall modern and minimalistic style of the wedding. Isn’t Judy absolutely gorgeous in it?!
Communicate Style to your Photographer
One of the most important things you can do when styling your wedding is to communicate this to your photographer. When John and Judy chose this venue I knew what style they were going for. I was able to come up with specific posing ideas and overall perspective shots that aligned with a minimal look. Choose a photographer you can trust artistically and who has strong communication skills and that will help you achieve the overall look that you want at your wedding!
