These college sweethearts had planned a big Indian / Sikh fusion wedding for Fall 2020, with an outdoor Sikh wedding ceremony, followed by a glamorous modern reception for 300 guests. Little did we know that the Coronavirus would force us to revisit their wedding plans. With much uncertainty around how long Covid-19 would affect social gatherings and travel, our clients chose to host a micro wedding in the backyard of the groom’s father’s home in Purcellville, Virginia so that they could be legally married on their wedding date. For a safer celebration during the Coronavirus pandemic, they invited only their immediate family members and close friends; and requested guests follow safety protocols before and during the wedding.

Our clients held their wedding ceremony surrounded by an apple orchard on the property, which gave the ceremony an intimate feeling.
What I love about micro weddings like these is that I actually have time to stop and listen to our client’s wedding vows. These two wrote eloquently about what they love about each other and their words were heartfelt and meaningful.
J Morris Flowers designed a loose, organic bridal bouquet inspired by the fall with red and yellow flowers like roses, dahlias, and yarrow, intermixed with foliage in greens and burgundy.
These last minute centerpieces worked really well on these wood farm tables. We used seasonal white pumpkins, foliage foraged from our client’s property, mixed with some lanterns and votives.
For guests’ health and safety, they each received hand sanitizers that they could use throughout the event.
Micro weddings doesn’t mean small in style or hospitality. Guests got to use and take home these koozies.
Guests sat physically distant and with their quarantine pods.
