Planning a wedding is a CHALLENGE. You may be overly excited about your engagement, only to discover when it comes to wedding planning all the fun seems to be leaching out of the process, leaving you languishing and overwhelmed. Sound familiar? I'm here to tell you that when it comes to planning a wedding, especially a destination wedding, there are plenty of benefits to opting for a small, intimate micro-wedding. There are even more benefits when you start looking at venues and decide to go with a backyard wedding at a private estate. Katie and TJ did exactly that and the result was a hilarious, intimate, and absolutely perfect private estate wedding in Summit County, CO.
Kenna's lifelong dream was to get married on her family's property outside of Grass Valley and Nevada City. Located in Penn Valley, CA, the ranch boasts massive cliffs with a river running through it, sloping hills, dense forest, and plenty of space for all of their friends to camp and rabblerouse. Their wedding was set for May of 2020. Due to the pandemic, their Grass Valley wedding was set to be rescheduled once, and then again. Two years later, I was incredibly honored to finally reconnect with Kenna and Hasan and finally capture their celebration on Kenna's family's ranch.
Agnes and Laurence wanted to have a small, intimate celebration surrounded by friends and family. They wanted amazing food, lots of laughter, and great photos. I have to say, that when you are one of two vendors, it makes you feel incredibly unbelievably special.
