A Fall Micro Wedding at Chatfield Hollow Inn

Wow, the past couple months have been absolutely incredible, but boy have they FLOWN by. Weddings are happening again and the entire team at Pearl Weddings and Events is absolutely overjoyed to be back in action (and flexing our creative muscles). Today, we wanted to share inspiration from Chelsea and Greg’s micro wedding last year with you. When COVID had other plans last year, Chelsea and Greg had a small intimate wedding on their original date in 2020. Like so many, they ended up postponing their original wedding plans. We can’t wait to celebrate their original plans this year in 2021 at one of our favorite venues Chatfield Hollow Inn (make sure to stay tuned for that one!).

A Connecticut Micro Wedding

One thing we absolutely loved about Chelsea and Greg’s micro wedding at Chatfield Hollow Inn was that is was completely different than what we had originally planned for their larger wedding. We started from scratch with the planning and put together a simple wedding ceremony setup (coupled with the gorgeous venue of course) and had a sweet picnic vibe for the reception – complete with a food truck and some string lighting. We always love an outdoor wedding and the weather held out for an absolutely incredible fall day. Make sure to swipe through the photos below because these two have the biggest smiles we have ever seen! So sweet.

COVID Friendly Wedding Ideas

We always follow the local laws & recommendations, of course, but we also try to go above and beyond to anticipate yours (and your guests needs!). One example that worked perfectly for the picnic vibe of this Connecticut micro wedding reception was individual place settings, finger foods that were individually portioned for the appetizers, and cupcakes over cake! Although we can’t give a blanket list of COVID friendly wedding ideas that would suite every style, that’s exactly what you hire a wedding planner for! To help you navigate the craziness of wedding planning and anticipating everything in advance.

Connecticut Wedding Planning & Design

We are SO excited to be back in the field as restrictions open up, but these micro weddings are so charming we hope they don’t go away anytime soon! Can we normalize having two parties to celebrate the love of your life? We definitely approve!
