A lot of the same-sex weddings we plan are dinner party style - that is, little to no dancing, with a real focus on the food, beverage, conversation and elegant ambiance. These weddings are so intimate, and while there's always an extraordinary, formal meal, the atmosphere remains so casual and upbeat because the group is small, mostly knows each other and there's no pressure at all. Everyone can just be themselves and have a good time. Doesn't that sound great?
With these weddings, the ceremony is typically short and sweet, with most guests standing around. The ceremony is important, the most important part, but a formal ceremony doesn't always lend itself to the atmosphere these couples are trying to create.
We created a beautiful wedding just like this on the Cape last September. The photos will be published in a magazine so we can't give too much away but here's a little teaser...
