Despite the changes that this year delivered to all of us,
we have adjusted, amended and conformed in one way or another.
As couples ventured forward with the attitude that "love could conquer all" AND "was worth fighting for",
they scaled down their wedding vision to meet the protocols instead of postponing, and thus "Micro Wedding"
became the new nuptial buzz word. Some couples took it one step further and decided to split what was intended
to be the "big" day into a "smaller" day and add in a kicking 2021 party to honor their vow renewals
and celebrate with their original guest list. It's been a scramble and rollercoaster ride in all ways
but really, we never stopped, we just changed the navigational route to a new end point.
The wedding industry has rallied by remaining flexible
and serving couples in innovative and more intimate ways.
As we all know, making celebrating happen is what we do,
it's what makes us tick and certainly, what brings us joy.
Somewhere in midst of it all, it occurred to me that my fav local caterer (The Farmer's Wife) and a charming venue (Taconic Ridge Farm) nestled not too far up the road were reinventing, just as I was,
to meet these new norms and protocols. So we came together and got to work!
For couples looking to make up for lost time and to streamline and simplify the lead up to their ceremony and celebration, we believe it takes 3 key components: a VENUE (with a scale appropriate for smaller gathering),
a CATERER (that can provide deliciously prepared local food with great service) and
a PLANNER (that can swiftly guide the process and resource additional details as needed).
Together we have created packages that par down and frame up the best
of what we do (normally) so that the decision making is much more manageable for our couples
and allows them to get to that long awaited finish line within the shortest possible lead up time.
Please have a look at what's happening for us and for couples this fall and winter.
