Catherann and John had everything planned: a wedding ceremony at a historic church, followed by cocktail hour and a lively reception.

Then the global pandemic happened.

While the pandemic has convinced many couples to delay weddings. Catherann and John had another idea: keep the date, and the main ideas, just scale them down. Trimming their guest list to only intimate friends and family– just 22 guests– Catherann and John opted for a micro wedding.  

Despite the dramatic change, good fortune shined at the micro wedding, with a peculiar 65 degree day despite it being December– and snowing just two days later. Catherann exchanged her first look with groom John in a spaghetti strap wedding dress with a soft tulle A-line skirt. John wore a fitted navy blue suit.

After exchanging vows, guests celebrated with cocktail hour at Blue Bee Cider, with a plated dinner following. The Cider Salon Room featured stone walls, ambient lighting, and modern charn. White tablecloths, flickering candlelight, and gold accents made for a warm and elegant style. Floral arrangements included white, pink and apricot roses and crawling vines for a charming modern appeal. 

But all eyes were on the couple when it came time to cut the cake. A single tier cake with chocolate ganache and fresh blackberries, alongside sprigs of white flowers, was just the perfect way to finish an intimate and unforgettable wedding.
