Over the course of the 2019 wedding season, I saw an uptick in a new type of intimate weddings. Micro weddings, with only 5-10 guests, allowed couples to go all-out: with decor, food, and their overall experience. A smaller guest list meant they could really make their wedding an event filled with stunning details at a fraction of the cost associated with a traditional wedding. I was inspired by this trend and Dogfish Head Brewing’s local properties. So, we created a micro-wedding to inspire couples to plan an entire wedding weekend all here in the humble first state of Delaware.
If you’re unfamiliar with Dogfish Head Brewing, they have made a name for themselves by doing things a bit differently than other brewing companies. Their tagline states that they brew “Off-Centered Ales For Off-Centered People”. All of their beers, their restaurants, and the Dogfish Inn capture that adventurous spirit. I was originally inspired by images of the Inn and actually let the spirit of each Dogfish Head property lead the way.
Part 1 – The Dogfish Inn Super Sweet
To highlight the intimate experience of a micro wedding, we started off our shoot at the Dogfish Inn Super Sweet. Our models, and real-life couple, Amanda and Scott got ready there. Big enough to get ready separately or together, it made for the perfect start to the micro wedding weekend. Scroll to see more of this Dogfish Head micro wedding!
