Dina and Mat are from New York City, but they spend a lot of time in Portsmouth. When it came time to plan their wedding, they chose a New Hampshire micro wedding at The Black Trumpet. This was before micro weddings were popular, but Dina and Mat kept it small – family only. It was a lot of planning and organizing, but I love how their small wedding turned out.
The Black Trumpet is an intimate bistro and bar that overlooks the harbor, and it happens to be my favorite restaurant. In order to create the wedding of their dreams, we had to close the restaurant and move everything out. We brought in a U-Haul full of rentals and got everything into place. Once the reception was over, we moved out the rentals and replaced all the restaurant items again. This was all done around one in the morning. It was worth it because the reception turned out beautifully. The couple had cream, mauve, and gold details coupled with a lot of greenery. The table had several candles, which helped create a romantic feel. It was a truly gorgeous wedding.
If you’d like a more personalized wedding, I recommend that you consider a micro wedding. The small guest count at Dina and Mat’s wedding meant they were able to add more beautiful personal touches. They had custom-curated welcome boxes and personalized place settings. Another client of mine had individual mini cakes at their New Hampshire micro wedding. A small wedding means you can devote more time and energy to your guests. You can really make them feel welcome and add details for their comfort.
If you’re looking for tailored planning for your micro wedding, I would love to hear from you! We can help you create a styled wedding perfectly to your tastes as we’ve done for many clients.
