More and more couples are confidently breaking or reinventing classic traditions – celebrating their love, their way. In celebration of all my beautifully one-of-a-kind couples, I’ve compiled the top 7 unique ideas to make your wedding day even more personalized.
While micro-weddings have become more common due to the pandemic, many couples are starting to take cues from this growing trend – cutting away the unnecessary wedding noise and focusing on what truly means the most to them. But you don’t have to have a tiny guest list to make your day feel more intimate!
My brides always say, “This may sound a little crazy, but I really want to…” and my immediate response is always “HECK YES.” Couples forget that their wedding is all about celebrating THEM. It’s your time to revel in that just-married bliss, whatever that means to you. It isn’t just about posing for pretty pictures and looking perfect. It’s about the natural, raw (and sometimes silly) memories you’re making with those you love most. Here are some of my favorite wild-and-free wedding ideas to make your day extra unique and personalized:
Don’t underestimate the way your floral arrangements can transform a space.

Flowers are a truly personalized choice and effortlessly transform your unique wedding dream into reality.
