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 Dogfish Head Brewpub 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 3 – The Dogfish Head Brewpub Wedding

To highlight the intimate experience of a micro wedding, we started off our shoot at the Dogfish Inn Super Sweet.  Check out the first part of the shoot on the blog here.  The second portion of the shoot was hosted at Chesapeake & Maine: Dogfish Head’s seafood restaurant in Rehoboth Beach.  We staged an intimate rehearsal dinner complete with florals by Belovely Design and signature cocktails by Dogfish Head’s culinary team.  View Part 1 or Part 2 on the blog here and keep reading to hear all about Part 3.

Since Dogfish Head boasts so many beautiful properties we felt it was only right to include all of them.  While Belovely Design did 3 large scale installs at the Dogfish Inn to create an all in one ceremony & reception space, we wanted to make sure couples could imagine an intimate wedding at the Dogfish Head Brewpub too.

Belovely Design and Elevee & Co. completely transformed the Brewpub’s circular tables.  Using yellow, pink, and white florals, they dressed the space to the 9s.  Our couple toasted their wedding with a flight of beer.  We also brought in the Dogfish Head Mighty Mini Cooper and it made the perfect backdrop outside the window.  Scroll to see all the floral goodness!
