Your home is the most intimate wedding venue possible. Setting up a few long tables in your backyard & and adding lighting can turn this heart warming place into your dream reception area.

3. Be a part of the cocktail hour!
Use the cocktail hour as time to interact with your guests and thank them for coming. If your guest list is truly small, this is a great time to have your toasts and mingle before dinner.
4. Make it all about you two.
Escape for a few moments, whether to a sweetheart table or to take photos at sunset where you and your brand new spouse can take in the day, just you two.
5. Go small on dessert
Having an intimate wedding means big wedding cakes and dozens of dessert bars are unnecessary. Your guests will love bite size desserts & coffee that they can enjoy at the end of the evening.
