The Loft of Elements Preserved, Hilary and Matt's Intimate Wedding Venue Choice

Updated: Oct 16, 2023

Several years ago, when restrictions on guest count were very much in place due to the pandemic, Hilary and Matt decided to proceed with their wedding, including just 25 of their closest family and friends. Those who were invited certainly felt special, as they carefully chose the few who could attend their marriage ceremony.

During this timeframe, it seems like the door was opened to couples seriously considering tiny weddings, where they could still include beautiful details, a private dinner, floral, photography, desserts, while celebrating with a much smaller group of friends and family. Couples continue to choose this option, now, for very specific reasons, mainly that they aren't comfortable with a large crowd, they want beautiful details, but don't want to spend a fortune on their wedding, or they've always dreamed of a tiny, romantic wedding!

Our couple chose to book our Full Day Wedding Package, allowing them 12 hours to come and go as they wished, giving freedom to the florist to set up in the early hours, while cake and dessert delivery was made early, as well. Hilary chose to do hair and makeup on site, which provides your HMUA to have access to lots of natural light, as well as plenty of space for the entire bridal party.

Curated weddings are our specialty; we love to take your vision, and bring it to life, however, we offer you the option to DIY, as well.

Whether you choose to do your own decorating, or include our services and decor with the Luxury wedding packages, your intimate wedding can be just what you've imagined. And best of all, you're marrying your best friend, surrounded by those family and friends that are most important in your life.
