WE GET ASKED THIS A LOT...

We know this is a novel idea, so there are a lot of questions we hear often

What is a mini wedding?

A mini wedding is our fancy way of  saying a micro wedding. Offering a stress-free solution for a small, intimate wedding focused on the couple and their love for one another. For couples who don't know where to start when it comes to wedding planning, a mini wedding is the perfect way to skip the stress and focus on you and your soon to be spouse. A mini wedding is also perfect for couples that don't want all of the pomp and circumstance of a 200 person wedding, but also want something classier than going to the courthouse. We stage an incredible ceremony space as a stunning backdrop for your event complete with all of the details. Just show up dressed and ready to exchange your vows—the rest is ready and waiting!
 

How does a mini wedding work?

We specialize in creating the perfect stress-free day for you and your partner. Absolutely all of the work has been done so you and your soon to be just have to come to the studio at your scheduled time.  Chairs for your guests will be set up, you are handed a bouquet and boutonniere and aside from that, the only thing you and your partner have to worry about is remembering to say “I do!” Each wedding is 45 minutes long which is 15 minutes for your ceremony and 30 minutes of photos. Sounds like the perfect way to get married, right? We think so too! 

Is it a "real" wedding?

100%! Kate is licensed through the state of Ohio to solemnize marriages (go ahead, you can look it up...better safe than sorry!). Your wedding will be legal and valid. You just need to bring your marriage license from your county of residence. We even have a handy guide on how to do that!
