Featured - East Village Wedding - Grey Lily Photography
This romantic, urban wedding really resonates with me today. It was exactly 2 years ago that Carmen & Dan were married, and yet how they chose to celebrate their love, is very much what couples are now being "forced" to do.
They had a small, intimate ceremony with maybe 20 guests or so, followed by family photos and a family style dinner. Now, they of course weren't practicing social distancing at this time. But it was so similar to the elopements I have been capturing this past month, that it made me excited (all over again) to share it with couples!
Carmen & Dan prove that having a small wedding can be absolutely beautiful and I hope that by sharing these images, couples will see that they can have the perfect day. Even with only a few guests.
***My editing and shooting style has admittedly changed a little since then, but I still adore these photos. Hope you do too!
Carmen's dress was custom made by Laura George; it was both a new dress and part of her mother's wedding dress. It was absolutely beautiful on her! And you can tell Dan thought so too!
Carmen was exceptional at choosing her vendor team. She was very detail orientated. And to no surprise she chose Flowers by Janie to do the floral's. Filled with pinks, corals and greens; they were everything you hope your flowers would be and more!
I know that eating together at a large table might not be an option for couples and their guests right now, BUT it doesn't mean you can't enjoy a delicious meal together while maintaining social distancing!
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful little wedding! :) And remember, your wedding day is about a celebration of your love. What matters most is that you are committing your life to your partner. Yes, the guests are important. Yes, the details are important. But nothing is as important as saying I do!
