A photographer by trade, I have worked with numerous couples in organizing their small, intimate weddings here in Pittsburgh. I’ve teamed up with a wonderful group of wedding pros to bring you this guide to planning your perfect small gathering. If there’s one thing I believe is important – it’s your love and commitment, regardless of how many people are there for dinner. Quality, not quantity. Family, friends, and a special union are what make these events perfection.

Happy Couples

We loved having a small wedding because it felt much more personal to us.  We were able to spend more time with each guest at the reception, which we really valued.  Overall it was easier to plan as well because there were fewer details to worry about coordinating.  I would do it again in a heartbeat!

“Everything turned out great – it was truly the most magical day of my life!

Having a small wedding allowed us to truly celebrate with the closest people in our lives, rather than just meeting and greeting everyone we know for a moment or two. It also allowed us to really decide what exactly we wanted in the ceremony and reception, keeping the traditions we loved and discarding the stuff that just felt like fulfilling an expectation. I still got to wear “the dress” and get beautiful photos and eat great food without stressing out over a million other details that weren’t really my priority. And at the end of the day, the most important thing happened: I married my favorite person.”
