Wedding Postponed, This Couple Had A Stylish, Modern Minimony

Are you embracing the minimony? A small, often private wedding ceremony that precedes the larger party later?

The rise of the minimony is obviously due to postponed Covid weddings. However, we think stylish ceremonies like Jeannie and Frankie’s might inspire couples to celebrate this monumental moment – no matter what the circumstance.

With their original wedding plans postponed, this couple still celebrated in style with a lakeside ceremony and intimate reception. The ultra-modern space was smartly decorated with light and airy florals that flourished in the clean and minimalist setting.

While not everyone Jeannie and Frankie loved could be present in this micro celebration, their pup Toby certainly made the guest list. We’re thankful, because how adorable are all the Snapful Photography puppy photos?

This celebration could be an example of how to properly plan a minimony. Whether you’re just signing marriage license papers or exchanging vows, it’s okay to get dressed up, hire a florist and planner and really soak in the moment. Even if your larger celebration means more to you, you’ll look back on these memories as well as a special step along the way.

The Planning

Like many soon-to-be newlyweds, our plans of having a traditional wedding amongst family and friends were postponed due to Covid. However we were not going to let this affect our special day.

We decided to sign papers and make things official with our immediate family. As we still plan on hosting our big reception next year in British Columbia we kept the signing ceremony super private and casual almost like an elopement style. Being in the industry and having designed and planned many weddings, I wanted our day to be relaxed, stress free and ironically unplanned.

The Design & Decor

We decided to go with a dusty blue and peach colour theme to compliment the waters. We started our day with a dip in the hot tub while watching sailboats sail by. It was as Frankie put it “the calm before the storm” In the afternoon, Kristy from Blushing Belles dolled me up. Mackenzie from Fable Floral Design did an amazing job with the florals and my bouquet. She even got my favourite Quicksand Roses.

The Photography

Tracey and Be from Snapful Photography were lovely to work with as they made myself and my now husband feel at ease. It was like hanging out with friends who take beautiful photos! Our dog Toby loved them too and was definitely the main character of the day.

The Ceremony

We exchanged personal vows at sunset with the beautiful lake behind us. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. I would highly recommend any future couples to consider a signing ceremony before the big wedding to really focus and celebrate their union without the stress of all the formalities.
