An Intimate Affair: Small Weddings, Big Impact.


An Intimate Affair: Small Weddings, Big Impact.

While a big wedding with all the bells and whistles can certainly make for a show-stopping day to remember, there’s something so precious about a smaller wedding that really tugs on our heartstrings. Choosing to celebrate a union surrounded by just the closest of loved ones can be just as powerful and profound as a much larger affair, and it deserves every bit as much attention and love. Here at Björn and Company, we simply adore our small weddings—and we want to share some of our favorite recent ones with you:

Lynn & Jeff

This beautiful wedding was nothing short of perfection. Held just last month in scenic Tarrytown, New York, the ceremony was a joyous celebration of family and love. Forgoing frills and excess, the couple opted for a simple, streamlined event that still exuded elegance and charm. From a natural makeup look for the bride to petite, monochromatic florals, the whole day felt effortless and warm. Through a tasteful focal palette of white, red, and gold, the visuals were neatly tied together. The reception felt more like a family gathering, and the laughter and smiles were truly infectious!

Desiree & Kristen

It’s all about the little things: when these two brides decided to celebrate their nuptials on a smaller scale, they made sure to make the most out of each and every moment and detail. Whimsical little twists nodded to this couple’s sense of chic fun. From an unexpected footwear selection to a cool “bare” cake, Desiree and Kristen showcased their creativity and uniqueness as a couple in countless memorable ways. The outdoor ceremony was simple and sweet—held on one of the most stunningly beautiful days, ever—and as a bonus, the entire wedding fit into a single photograph! The reception was a rollicking good time, full of vibrant colors and eclectic touches that were just so them. Verdict? Perfect 10.

Karen & Ross

Held just over a year ago, Karen and Ross’s wedding was a little on the larger side of the small wedding scale—but still had that coveted intimate feeling that make small weddings so special. After the gorgeous outdoor ceremony (that sunset glow!), guests joined the newly wed couple for their cozy reception…on a boat! With a color palette of ivory, lavender, blush, and just an accent of black, the whole space radiated a soft glamour. A subtle Disney theme added an unexpected, yet sweet, touch. To strike the perfect balance of romantic and fun is no easy feat, so we’re giving ourselves a pat on the back for that one!
