An intimate Wedding Celebration with Family and Close Friends.

Q: What is a Minimony?

A: A Minimony is a mini-wedding production. If Martha Stewart defines a Small Wedding as a gathering of up to 50 persons, then a Minimony is probably half of that.


A Minimony is not meant to be a casual elopement wedding. It is a formal gatherings; both in style and creative flare. However, the guest list is smaller and may range from a handful of parents and siblings, to a couple dozen family members and close friends. After the ceremony some couples have a Champagne Toast, Cut a cake and share with their guests, have a photo shoot then everyone gathers at a local restaurant or private residence for Brunch or Dinner and other reception activities.


 Sometimes a few guests attend the wedding virtually via Zoom, FaceTime or other popular streaming apps.

"We want to thank you again for making our ceremony on Friday so special. Our family and friends loved you and how special they all felt being part of our ceremony. We appreciate all your time in getting to know us and our relationship, and all your support on our wedding day."
