Hot Trends in Small Weddings

January 8th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Since small weddings are her specialty, our wedding coordinator Tiffany has compiled a list of the hottest trends in small weddings for future brides.

As for the big picture, elopements are becoming more popular as couples look to save money and create a relationship-focused marriage. These intimate ceremonies have personal touches and a stress-free atmosphere, and the customization opportunities for the couple are endless. Our elopement packages offer a variety of personalized options for a “wedding for two.”

For details within a small wedding, a classic color scheme is still popular—neutrals with metallic punches. Using white or cream as a backdrop for a small wedding provides an elegant way to tie all the elements of the wedding together, from the dress to the tablecloths to the chairs. A few metallic elements add sparkle to an understated color scheme—a silver cake stand, glittering gems on the table, or rhinestone bouquet wrap.

The biggest bonus of a small wedding is the cherished atmosphere. One way that couples are capitalizing on this is by taking a personal photo with each guest at their wedding. Besides the great social media moments that you can get from such a display, the guests at the wedding will feel that much more beloved and included in your special day.

Following the wedding, the reception is becoming more casual and experimental with a focus on appetizers. From mini-quiche to Caprese salad skewers to potato nachos and beyond, appetizers are great for variety. Delicious small bites are a thoughtful way to feed guests at afternoon receptions, especially if you’re heading to a restaurant afterward for dinner.

Summer Wedding on Lake Hamilton

August 9th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

A July wedding filled with laughter and joy perfectly suited Kit & Liz. They were actually married on the July holiday weekend, when the lake was bounding with activity.  The couple wanted a non-traditional setting for their wedding:  mission accomplished!

For the first time in 7 years, a band was playing rock & roll music across the lake.  Kit and Liz loved the spontaneous music, and even the selection of songs.

I say it often:  we are lucky to receive the BEST guests at our bed & breakfast inn.   A variety of intimate wedding and elopement packages is offered.

Intimate Wedding on Lake Hamilton

May 8th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

At Lookout Point, we LOVE weddings, especially small intimate weddings. And especially when the couple is as kind & fun as Samantha & Mark. They exchanged vows today by the lake, with immediate family present. Congratulations!

Marrying at Lookout Point is becoming a trend for the Miller family. Three years ago sister Amy married Cody at Lookout Point, and today they returned to attend this wedding with their precious 2 year old son. What a joy to see them again!

On a gorgeous spring day, Shannon & Brian exchanged vows in the gardens of Lookout Point, at the water’s edge of Lake Hamilton.  During the wedding ceremony, quiet Brian (whom we learned has a dry and quick wit) cracked all of us up with a unique photographer request–to get a picture of his handsome new size 15 shoes.

It was such a privilege to officate at their wedding, and to share in their absolute joy.  Congratulations to a wonderful couple, Shannon & Brian!
