T has a big family and we have a lot of friends from various stages of our lives we want to invite, so the question of wedding size was pretty much settled on “med-large” from day one. However, I have developed a secret obsession with intimate weddings. The thought of getting married with only my closest family and friends is simply bewitching. The problem is that when I try to come up with that “closest” list, it keeps growing way past the “intimate” stage, and I have to give it up as a lost cause!
I don’t know that I’d go so far as to say that an intimate wedding is my wedding fantasy — I prefer to think of it as my “other” wedding idea. If I were disciplined enough to streamline our guest list enough to have an intimate wedding, though, yesterday’s featured wedding on SMP is the kind I would want. You may recognize this photo from my post yesterday afternoon:
Well, I was so much in love with the wedding that I just had to share more of the loveliness today! All photos are by the oh-so-talented Jessica Johnston.
Liz and Ken had an intimate, lovely wedding with only 15 family and friends. Don’t you adore how happy and in love they look?
And I absolutely love Liz’s Badgley Mischka bolero:
And the beautiful setting for dinner (who says small weddings have to be casual?):
But my favorite part, and the part that makes me adore intimate weddings, is the sense of calm joy that seems to suffuse every image.
What’s your secret wedding obsession?
