About The Owl Weddings

MICRO WEDDING / ELOPEMENT GUIDE

The wedding planning process has changed significantly in 2021. I’m here to share some good news, and give you the tips that I’ve learned over the past few months. Who am I? I’m Sean, Owner of The Owl Weddings and I’ve been working with my couples since last March to re-plan their weddings. Along the way, I’ve learned a number of things.

1. SMALL IS BETTER
For the past number of years, I’ve watched wedding guest counts (and price tags!) get really out of hand when planning. In my experience, this is usually due to family pressure. At some point, a lot of my couples have started to feel like it’s not even their wedding any longer. That they’re along for the ride.

THIS YEAR IS YOUR EXCUSE TO HAVE THE WEDDING YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO.
You now have full control over the guest list. You get to invite the most important people in your life to be there, and you actually have time to be with them-

2. YOU GET TO SPEND TIME WITH EVERYONE THERE
Traditionally, it’s actually rare for my couples to actually talk to everyone that attends their wedding. With a smaller wedding, you can now spend time with everyone you’ve invited.

3. COST
Couples this year are saving so much money on weddings. Prices really have gotten out of control, and now you can spend the money you save in other places.

4. YOU CAN NOW GET MARRIED ANYWHERE
This is one of the most exciting things with micro weddings - you can get married anywhere. You no longer have to look for hall to accommodate a certain guest count, while also meeting the budget. Now you get to be creative.

5. BETTER WEDDING PHOTOS
As a wedding photographer, this is the most exciting part of micro weddings for me. Weddings have become much simpler overall. Which means, less stress for you on the day. No problems to troubleshoot, you just get to enjoy the day. This lack of stress on the wedding day, really comes through in the photos. Micro weddings, we can schedule at the best time of day for photos. To add to that, you can now use the budget you saved to spend a little more on the details you’d really like to have.

SO HOW DO YOU PLAN THE BEST MICRO WEDDING?
My suggestions:
-Pick your dream location. There are no longer any rules to where you should have your ceremony. Spend some of the money you’re saving on bringing in great vendors.
-Set up an on location dinner, or move to a restaurant. With smaller guest counts, it’s now possible to set up a small reception wherever you’d like.
-Hire a photographer (me!) for 2-3 hours. That will cover a little of the getting ready, the ceremony, family photos and photos of the two of you. (There are also packages if you’d like me to come to the reception)
-My photography is primarily candid, so it’ll be a more relaxing experience than you might think right now.
-Safety in this time is a priority for me. I will respect all current local rules.
-Thanks for reading and if you have any other questions, feel free to reach out!

    Extremely professional

    I can’t thank Sean enough for all of the hard work he put in for our wedding! He was super responsive to all of our calls and emails. He made everyone feel comfortable and at ease with his experience doing photography. Everyone loved him and I would highly recommend The Owl Weddings to all our friends and family!

    Such a pleasant experience

    Working with the Owl Weddings team was so great from initially reaching out to them, to being so happy with the final product. They had very reasonable pricing compared to other vendors we looked into and their work is phenomenal. I would definitely recommend them to friends, family, and anyone looking to capture beautiful moments on thier special day. Awesome Work!!!
