Hannah and Ola's Nigerian-inspired intimate summer wedding

We love to share intimate wedding inspiration which is displayed in many ways at The Loft. It was our pleasure to host Hannah and Ola's intimate wedding in May of 2022, where we provided our clients use of the Loft and in-house amenities. The bride and her closest friends set the tables, added flowers to our copper arbor, and added tabletop decor using pampas grass, dried floral and eucalyptus, with a nod to hubby's Nigerian heritage. We're sharing more of their wedding decor in this blog, for your inspiration.


Guests traveled from around the country to attend. Even though their ceremony and reception was for a small and intimate group of closest family, it was large on LOVE in every way!

It was such a pleasure watching our couple incorporate music, dance and customs from Nigeria, while both families joined together in the joyous occasion.

We welcome you to The Loft of Elements Preserved to celebrate your love in beautiful style, adding your personal touches/customs. After all, it's your day and your celebration!

As we've continued to celebrate intimate weddings for 50 or less, most often, the guest number averages 25! And for a good reason, because the couple has chosen to celebrate with a select few, their closest family and friends. Maybe a large dinner or reception is in store later, and maybe not! But for their wedding day, nothing seems to have been more perfect than celebrating this way.
