Have your wedding plans been affected by COVID-19? Do you still want to get married?
What was your inspiration for planning this pop up wedding day at la maquette?
Ever since the world was put in quarantine I was surrounded by devastated couples that were forced to postpone their weddings. I was constantly trying to figure out a way to make couples happy. That’s where this concept came from. ‘Your (small) Dream Wedding’ is a way for couples to still get that feeling of a big wedding in a much smaller way.
They are going to get everything they would have if they still were able to go forward with the original wedding, just with less people and a much smaller budget. We’ve got a wedding planner, an officiant, flowers and decor, a live musician, a photographer, hors d’oeuvres, prosecco, cake, cupcakes, digital invitation and comfortable masks that will match the decor.
Why is la maquette a good location for this concept wedding
I wanted a beautiful venue that would feel intimate. I didn’t want a big banquet hall where we would occupy a corner and the rest would feel empty. I love that La Maquette has an outdoor patio that we will get to use.
How are you planning with the photographer vendor to create a stunning wedding day album opportunity for the couples?
La Maquette has so many areas that make you feel like you could be in different locations. It’s so cool. But the best part is the decor that our event designer is creating. It’s going to be stunning. Prepare to have your minds blown.
How did you chose the charity that will receive a portion of the profits and what do you like about the organization ?
This was probably the most difficult part for me. There are so many causes that are dear to me. I chose the Frontline Fund because that is the cause that felt the most current and relevant. My father was in the hospital this month. He didn’t have COVID-19 but I witnessed how hard the staff worked and wanted to give back. (He’s doing fine and healing at home right now).
