If COVID-19 has you feeling frustrated about making so many changes in wedding planning, or if you are newly engaged and hitting roadblocks with every idea, consider an elopement. This couple had a short engagement and was able to pull off a beautiful garden-style wedding in a few months. Although their original guest list was small by intention, if socially distancing measures have disrupted your guest list, look here for inspiration. Your new guest list may be small, but we love the strong impact of this couple’s delicate touches.
As any bride-to-be knows, trimming the wedding guest list can be one of the most stressful aspects of wedding planning. Anxiety about hurt feelings or inadvertently leaving someone off the list makes you, well, just want to elope. And that’s what Cedric Jones and Yolanda Hall did in 2015 after a three-month engagement and wedding at The Aldredge House in Dallas. It was just the happy couple and six guests. The wedding was small, intimate, and exactly what they envisioned. “We really just wanted those there who meant the most to us,” Yolanda says. Although small, the daytime garden ceremony and reception was lavish, with a textural teal-hued cake, stunning floral arrangements with blooming peonies, and a picture-perfect tablescape.
