The Secret to Intimate Weddings: At Home for Chelsea and Anthony’s Ceremony

June 24, 2018

The antithesis to big, over-the-top weddings, our time with Chelsea and Anthony proved that even the most intimate weddings can be just as stunning for the senses. No detail overlooked, Chelsea and Anthony celebrated their wedding day at their parents’ home in Reno. From gorgeous table settings to beautiful touches, like painted signs and romantic white flowers, the day couldn’t have been more perfect.

The couple’s reading of their vows was made even more special as they each took turns reading their promises to their son, Anson. Chelsea’s two-piece dress was idyllic, the flowers in her hair the perfect finishing touch. Stunning mountain views provided a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony, the sun setting just as the reception began.

Truly a family affair, the small guest list of only thirty people allowed Chelsea and Anthony to focus on the details of the day, something which paid off not just for our photographs, but for everyone in attendance. From their son getting to play with his cousin to plenty of time to spend with the people they love the most, it seems as if the couple could write a book about the secret to picture perfect intimate weddings.

As strings of lights began illuminating faces, conversations lingered and the dance floor blended with the soft grass. Shoes were lost and smiles found as everyone settled into the groove, the atmosphere the perfect environment for creating life long memories.
