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 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 5 – The Dogfish Head Brewery After Party

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. We then headed to Chesapeake & Maine for an intimate rehearsal dinner.  Then our wedding day kicked off with a ceremony and large, floral-filled reception installation at Dogfish Inn.  To incorporate all of the Dogfish Head properties, we also created a secondary reception option at the Dogfish Head Brewpub.  After the ceremony and reception, our couple headed off to the Dogfish Head Brewery to enjoy a nightcap. Our bride switched her dress and added a leather jacket for a more modern look.  They were accompanied by a sweet Bernese Mountain Dog flower pup.  A round of bocce, ice-cold pints, and pizza capped off the wedding weekend.   Scroll to see the final installation of our Dogfish Head micro wedding shoot and check out Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV here.
