In an attempt to offer a wide range of perspectives on small weddings and elopements, I will be featuring a real wedding on Wednesdays. What is fascinating to me about real couples who decide to celebrate their wedding by eloping or going the intimate route, is how unique and personal these celebrations are. Each one is so uniquely different from the other. It’s like when you strip away all the tried and true traditions of a big wedding, all that is left is very personal, very honest, and very you.
Today’s real wedding is extra awesome in that Mountain Side Bride was able to get a personal interview with the bride herself. It is so refreshing to hear her honest feelings about their small and intimate wedding celebration. Complete with hindsight advice, this bride tells it like it is. So for all those couples who struggle with their visions of a smaller wedding, you may find the courage and resolve you are looking for with a little help from Chelsea and her groom Nate.
