Greenbriar Inn Microwedding
At most of our weddings, we leave feeling like we made a handful of new friends. At Lizzie and Dylan’s Greenbriar Inn microwedding, we left feeling more like we had reconnected with several long lost friends.
Every single guest at the wedding was deeply important to the couple. There were no great aunts or obligatory plus ones. No cousin’s new girlfriend who’s only been around for a few weeks and no one is really sure if she’ll be around in another few weeks because they’ve broken up and gotten back together once already. (We all know the one.)
This didn’t happen by chance. Lizzie and Dylan knew from early on that they wanted a small wedding. But when you get two of the kindest, smartest, most generous people on the planet together, a small guest list becomes something more. They have a way of attracting similar fantastic humans into their orbit., resulting in an incredibly close-knit party. Everyone at Lizzie and Dylan’s wedding felt welcome and at ease…and ready to dance their faces off at the end of the night.
All because two wonderful people found each other and planned a truly magical day.
Lizzie, to answer the question you asked us in the car more directly: yes, we are often sad when a wedding is over and people we’ve come to know and care for sort of just drift away. To be more specific, we hope that you and Dylan don’t drift away because it’s a huge honor to be amongst your people.
(And anyway, your mom invited us to the lake house, so we’ll probably just see you there!)
Lots of couples worry that a first look will take away all the emotion from seeing each other at the end of the wedding ceremony aisle. In our experience, that hasn’t been the case. The first look gives you a private moment to see your soon-to-be-spouse for the first time, while walking down the aisle gives you more of a wow, this is real emotional moment. Bonus: getting your photos done before the ceremony gives you more time to spend with guests at your reception!
