Tiny Weddings Bham

Tiny Weddings Bham

The lyrics of that Bryan Holland song keep ringing in my ear: “Itsy, bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka dot bikini.” I probably just like the rhyme and the use of “itsy bitsy.”  But let’s be honest, anything small is just so darn cute –  puppies, micro houses, and Frank Underwood’s civil war miniatures. (Anyone else a House of Cards fan?)  There is something so fascinating about the time and attention it takes to add detail to small things – special and delicately handled.

Tiny Weddings Bham is just that – small, of course, but handled with the utmost care by a team of the best in Birmingham. So what is it exactly? As they call it, Tiny Weddings Bham is a “pop-up wedding” or “styled elopement.” They handle the detail; you just show up. And most of all, the cost is tiny. The price generally ranges from $3,500-$4,500 depending on the venue. This is a huge price difference with the average cost of a wedding in Birmingham at $30,000.

“We believe in memories and moments and all the tiny unforgettable things that happen in between. We believe in love and that starting your life together does not have to be complicated- but is worth celebrating and marking in a special way.”

Anny Marie Leveille, experienced wedding planner and coordinator, brought this concept to Birmingham. She and a team of vendors do it all. All you need is a killer outfit and groom (and up to 20 guests if you choose). They announce the date of the next pop-up wedding; you submit your story, and then choose your time.

The list of vendors that TWB has worked with are some of the best: The Nest, an historic Avondale space – think rustic and modern with the coolest wall as a backdrop for photos; Gold Leaf Floral; Photos by Heart; Tres Beau Weddings; and Swan Lindsey Lettering, custom invitations. (Yes, please!).

The next pop-up wedding is Oct. 22 at the Clubhouse on Highland. Visit the TWB for more detail.

Handmade Home Wedding

May 13, 2014


It’s that time of year… I can hear the church bells ringing and see the flower petals floating down the isle before the bride. However, weddings are expensive, and the costs can become overwhelming. If you are planning a wedding, be thankful that handmade, vintage and rustic are all in style.

As I perused one of my favorite wedding photographers, Morgan Trinker, I came upon the perfect combination of simplicity and charm. “Less is more” has never been more true.
