We Almost Didn’t Make it!
Originally Wanja & Brian wanted to wed in 2019 and we had set out all the plans ahead of time. Unfortunately, COVID came in and distorted all their hard work! From postponement to cancellation it was a super stressful time for them. It almost didn’t happen! We wanted to make it up to them now that they could finally proceed with their wedding with an airy luxurious décor concept.

Wedding Pro Tip
When it comes to the guest size, in 2021, less is definitely more! With the growing number of postponed weddings, couples are choosing to trade their large guests lists with more intimate micro-weddings. Smaller weddings take the stress out of the planning process and enable you to focus your strength on making memories that are oh so special! Due to the current pandemic these small celebrations are becoming increasingly popular and don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. A smaller guest size gives you more room in your budget to go for better quality vendors & elements for your wedding.
As you look for creative ways to host your celebration this year, hotel weddings are becoming increasingly popular. These venues are convenient, offer Covid observation and are secure. You can turn a hotel ballroom or outdoor garden into a fairy tale wedding. Most hotels will require you use their catering for your wedding, therefore one has to budget well as the food menus are more elaborate. An accurate guest list will help you manage your budget and some hotels can even give you additional perks like the honeymoon suite for the first night, or the entire honeymoon at very discounted rates. Additionally, you can get a very subsidized rate for an evening party! Definitely worth negotiating and considering!
