Jessica and Christopher’s micro wedding took place in August. They join a unique and historic group of other couples worldwide who in March were in the midst of planning for a big wedding (in their case, an original wedding of 250 people), but who ended up opting for a small, albeit luxurious celebration in the midst of the Pandemic of 2020.

The decision to go micro didn’t happen overnight. After the pandemic hit, and as Jessica's bridal shower date came and went, and the hope of rescheduling for the summer dwindled, a decision was finally made when their original venue was no longer an option. They settled on a small reception of 34 of their closest family and friends and the whole thing came together in two weeks.

The restaurant venue, Nodo Hillcrest, was transformed into a luxurious floral-filled dream. From decorative pink vinyl that was applied to glass grid windows to give the kitchen area a soft pink glow, to bloom-lined tables and a luscious floral arbor over the head table, this small scale wedding was definitely big on detail. The couple, both lesson planners, rolled with it. Jessica gave the following speech at their micro wedding and it sums things up perfectly.

 “When we reflect on our journey to today, Chris and I, two veteran lesson planners, in fact, learned some of the most important life lessons. When life changed in March, our new reality challenged everything we knew about lifelong learning. We learned how to dance in the rain because otherwise, we would be waiting for a very long time for the storm to pass. Monogram napkins became personalized face masks, chocolate bonbons became hand sanitizer bottles, and what was going to be a never-ending feast became a custom lunch box and gelato outside our church doors. But most of all we learned, love always wins.”

Indeed. Love always wins.
