By Suzi Battaile

Modern, Stylish, Boho

Micro Wedding

Mariah and Reggie’s wedding was a mix of modern boho and fun. Mariah loves pampas grass and knew she wanted that as the focal point. They had a huge pampas arrangements at the alter and as a hanging arrangement and it sure was a wow! They didn’t want to go too over board, so they kept the bridesmaid and groomsmen attire modern and clean. 

Their reception had some corky boho decor which highlighted her personality. Their cake was such a fun twist. Very corky and bright colors! Mariah swears it tasted amazing!!!

Although Mariah & Reggie were able to keep their original wedding date, COVID did affect their wedding planning.  Coasterra was outdoors and accommodating while at the same time, being really careful with making sure there was a set seating chart so households that were not living together were 6 feet apart.  Their original reception site closed so they found an alternative, but had to cut their guest list in half.  As with all catering these days, buffets with people serving themselves are no longer an option. And of course there was plenty of hand sanitizer everywhere and mask wearing guidelines.

Mariah’s advice for planning a wedding during a pandemic, “Do what is best for you and your family! If you have family that you really really want/need to be there, but are high risk for COVID then Yes postpone. Most of my family agreed to the date and some did not because of COVID because they were unsure. However, those people did not stop me. Not saying I did’t care about them. I just knew that I wanted to get it done. I didn’t care if it was a small wedding or big. If you are fine with some people not coming and want to keep the wedding this year, then do it! That’s what I did. I knew lots of people would not want to come. I still had so many people there. I invited 65 people and 57 people showed up.”
