a different kind of wedding
Like no other time before now, the wedding planning lexicon has grown:
It’s not that these terms didn’t exist before, but rather more couples planning their wedding have become very familiarized with the concepts in this current pandemic era.
So what’s the difference between each one and what does it look like when it comes to hiring HERENORTH?
micro wedding. minimony. elopement.
Micro and intimate weddings run just like a traditional wedding day, but with the guest list paired down- typically to 30 guests or less for a true micro wedding experience, or under 75 guests for an intimate wedding. The bridal party- if there is any- is smaller, and the wedding sometimes involves less vendors than a traditional wedding. Some couples opt to go this route to save on cost in some areas while splurging on other areas that mean more to them.
When it comes to your photographs, the standard parts of the day are covered: portraits, ceremony and reception coverage, and sometimes even the morning of depending on your preference. This could mean anywhere from 6 to 9 hours with just one photographer (yours truly, unless you'd like to add a second photographer) and a non-photographing assistant to help me make sure I come prepared for whatever conditions come at us!
This type of wedding coverage is focused on the commitment/ceremony shared with those near and dear to you the most. It typically includes 12 guests or less, no bridal party and the focus for photos falls on the ceremony, a handful of family formals, and portraits of the newlyweds. The coverage for this is typically 2 hours with one photographer.
MICRO & INTIMATE weddings
(AND INTIMATE ONES TOO)
Best known for being done in secret (but not always), this bare-bones approach lets you focus on what matters most: your love! No guests attend- it’s just the couple (you!), an officiant, a witness and a photographer. Coverage for this can range anywhere from 1 to 2 hours with one photographer.

let's make magic
"Adriana’s communication skills, flexibility, and calm unwavering demeanor helped us through replanning a reception and planning our micro-wedding, despite both a pandemic and tropical storm. During the ceremony Adriana made everyone feel comfortable and put everyone at ease, and could see why she was such a big part of our planning process. Adriana, you are amazing in every sense of the word. You are so much more to us than our photographer, you were truly a supporter of us in this unprecedented time."
