Micro weddings (aka intimate weddings) are one of my favorite things to photograph! I love doing these because it is such an intimate and personal setting with immediate family and close friends. While big weddings can also be amazing, intimate weddings really allow for more personal time with everyone. Couples don’t have to worry about a ton of guests to manage and a ton of vendors. They can really have a beautiful day with much less stress!
It also allows them to have a more budget-friendly event since they are saving on the huge costs of having a lot of vendors. Most of my couples chose a smaller venue, that also opens up a lot of fun and unique options. It also allows them to spend their money on the items that mean the most to them! If they want to add on more photography time, they can. If they want a huge pie bar with lots of options, they can do that! Or if the couple wants to spend more on the honeymoon, they can do that too.
Today, I am going to share three sweet intimate weddings, to show you all the beautiful ways you can have a micro-wedding, with three different locations and themes! I would love to shoot your micro-wedding, whether you are in Bloomington or Indianapolis! I am available to travel across the Mid-West!
Micro Wedding at Brown County State Park
Kenzie & Dustin had an intimate ceremony with immediate family at the overlook by the Nature Center at Brown County State Park. This park has a few different areas that work well for micro-weddings! Their overlook is incredible and offers the best views year-round. The fall leaves were the perfect color, and really were breathtaking! After their ceremony, we walked around the nature preserve for bride and groom portraits. I just love how the couple added sunflowers to their decor, with pops of yellow and orange. Another great spot is the Abe Martin Lodge and Amphitheater. (See more images of this space, here!)
Tulip Tree Shelter Wedding
Megan & Greg had an intimate ceremony at Tulip Tree Shelter as Brown County State Park. This area offers a covered space for your ceremony and reception and can fit up to 60 people. It’s also quite private, so you won’t have to worry about people hiring nearby. Brown County State Park has eight shelters, but this is one of my favorites! Like Kenzie and Dustin, they had a fall color palette, with oranges and yellows.
Evansville Micro Wedding
Kaitlyn & Kane’s had an intimate ceremony overlooking the pond at a local park in Evansville, IN. The couple chose to have a smaller guest count, but loved every minute of it! They had a color palette of emerald green and gold, with pops of yellow in the bridesmaid’s bouquets. Kaitlyn was super stylish and had a custom leather jacket and custom emerald green and gold nails. She wore a beautiful gold floral headpiece for a little bit more sparkle.
