Elope in Minnesota
Are you leaning towards an elopement or a small ceremony instead of a full big wedding? I would love to give you some tips so you can rock your Minnesota elopement! Ope!
Minnesota is full of locations that are beautiful, accessible and memorable!
It’s a celebration about you two!
Intimate ceremonies are incredibly emotional, there are (usually) fewer complications and less structure around your day! The people surrounding you are the most special to your hearts and there is more space to be genuine.
Elopement and Micro Weddings: What’s the difference
Both types of ceremonies are minimalistic in nature and involve few, or even zero, guests. With small weddings evolving and changing in trends and complexity, they are also known as Intimate weddings and there are some Wedding terms like Mini Wedding , Tiny Wedding, Minimonys, Sequel Weddings, and Petite Weddings!
Elopements are the choice for many couples whose guest list is small or tiny, usually 10 people or less. I have been to micro ceremonies where I was counted as the witness! The ceremony can be anywhere from your backyard to the courthouse, lakeside or a park, where you do it is very flexible! The reception, if there is one, is usually a very, small dinner celebration.
Elopements are also known to be something more spontaneous (even though it does require a little bit of planning) and involve some sort of adventure in your day. In Minnesota many couples choose to find a secluded nature area, or take a road trip to a waterfall or, even better, by the majestic Lake Superior! The best part: Your Minnesota Elopement photographer is used to these spur of the moment happenings!
Micro Weddings in Minnesota
Small Weddings have been a popular choice for couples who want something simpler. They are back to being not only popular but a necessity after the pandemic (when the term micro wedding became more popular).
And while downsizing your weddings might not have been your first choice, this doesn’t mean that your day will be any less special! Intimate and smaller ceremonies are very emotional and allow you to focus on you two even more surrounded by your most important and favorite people are around you! The main difference in a small wedding is the size of the guest list and that there is often some type of reception after the ceremony.
