Scaling Down to Two of You

Couple at Bridge for Lassen Wild Shoot with XSiGHT Photography and Tan Weddings & Events

Lockdowns in 2020 stopped the wedding march in its tracks. Grand celebrations that couples and their venues and vendors had planned for months were halted, causing ripples of painful and distressing cancellations, reschedules, and postponements. By rethinking priorities and reflecting on what was most important, some couples scaled down their celebrations from 200 guests to 2. A wedding is not about the party, it is about the pair – two people who want to be joined in marriage.

Tan Weddings & Events, our parent company, has been doing elopements for years, and with their origin story as officiants, they have always put the ceremony at the center of a wedding. “The pandemic and ensuing restrictions reminded the industry that the heart of a wedding is the couple’s pledge to one another to remain committed, courageous, to focus on their partnership, and not worry about the party!”

Wedwordy agrees! The wedding ceremony script remains an integral component of a wedding, whether shared with a throng of wedding guests or expressed by the officiant with just the couple present. The picture featured in this post was from a photo shoot by Tan Weddings & Events. Imagine, just the two of you, standing in a serene setting such as the one from the shoot near Lassen Volcanic Park, and exchanging your meaningful words of love, witnessed by nature. Scaling down to two is still a grand celebration.
