LA Small Wedding Collective - Let’s Tie the Knot!

July 10, 2020

We’re so excited to announce our partnership in the launch of the Los Angeles Small Weddings Collective! We may have to hit pause on the traditional way of getting married but that doesn't mean you shouldn't still celebrate your marriage.

Together as a community, a group of wedding planners, venues and vendors have come together to provide couples with a stress free, stylish and safe way to get married in style. Focusing on community in a time when that is most needed, our mission in starting this was to put our collective experience to work and make our industry stronger. Think of it as a ‘choose your own adventure wedding’: Curated wedding experiences from LA's best planners. We've thought of everything so you don't have to. Grab your nearest and dearest and let's get you married!

A little about the Colorful and Creative experience at Forme Los Angeles. Industry planner extraordinaire, Holly Gray from Anything But Gray Events, is known for her stylized, out-of-the-box weddings and will be partnering with Aurelia D’Amore Photography, Whit Hazen, Papillon Rentals, Sugar Studio, Great Officiants, Jay’s Catering, and of course, Forme, to put together a seamless pop-up wedding experience just for you!

Each experience includes:
- Up to 10 people in attendance
- 2 hours venue access
- 2 hours photography and digital photo gallery
- Personal flowers for the couple
- Mini cake cutting and champagne toast
- Marriage license and insurance
**Additional services such as live streaming, videography and hair + makeup also available!

Each curated experience is a hybrid between an elopement and a pop-up wedding. You may have heard those terms before, but we think this is making the best of both worlds! In an elopement, usually the couple gets married by themselves. Well, we thought you might like to have some of your family + friends around - so up to 10 people can be in attendance at your event!  And like a pop-up wedding, you are getting an awesome experience at venues that don't usually hold small events like this, with several couples getting married on the same day at different times. This allows your vendor team to bring you the level of service they are known for, without the higher price tag that comes with larger events or a more traditional 'micro-wedding', which is just in essence a wedding under 50 people. 

Your 2 hours on site will consist of a 15-30min ceremony, 20-30min cake cutting and champagne toast followed by a portrait session for the couple and also guests if so desired. While how your time is spent is ultimately up to you and your planner, we suggest the above format as a guide.

All of the weddings done by the Los Angeles Small Weddings Collective will follow all current and announced federal, state and local guidelines and restrictions for gatherings. This is one of the reasons we have come together and decided on these particular experience offerings, to have your wedding the safest way possible. With a smaller, private event there will not be a mask requirement for the couple or guests. Please note however, out of an abundance of caution, the vendors present at your wedding will wear masks. This is for the protection of you and your guests.
