Here we are close to 2021 and wedding plans are still changing. It’s exhausting to say the least, but there is a good side and that is the permission we’ve all given each other to celebrate HOWEVER. Many couples choose to celebrate the original wedding date with something called “minimality”. Funny name, good idea, a minimality is essentially a preview of what’s to come when you meet again. Here is a little BTS of this colorful minimal inspiration from photographer Enuel Viera:
We proposed this shoot in honor of all the couples who had to cancel their original plans but still wanted to celebrate on their original date, accompanied by just a few close witnesses. The couple were a real couple who were in quarantine together and excited to be able to party this way. The idea was to hold a small ceremony in the original hotel where the couple had their wedding (in this case, Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve in Puerto Rico) and later have an outdoor dinner with close family members. We wanted bright colors and lots of humor to liven up the atmosphere.
The colorful event was a collaboration between planners and stylists Karisha Marie, Mia Eventos and Alexandra Rodriguez. Let’s look at the photos of Enuel Viera!
Expect some fun acrylic + colorful details – this invitation from Paper Crafts is just a preview!
Totally tropical minimony ceremony
The team took social distancing into account when setting up the ceremony venue. If you have fewer guests, it’s a good excuse to bring out the fancy chairs!
A mixture of dried pampas grass and brightly painted flowers from Eclectik Events was given the ombré effect for a funny splash of color on the altar.

Fun Ways Celebrate your original wedding date
This special celebration was about creating a happy atmosphere. And what’s more fun than a piñata with local candy ?! We found some REALLY cute ones:
Another fun way to celebrate the original day? Carry your wedding goods! All the rules are out, so why not wear this dress more than once? Maria Elena Headpieces’ D’Royal Bride wedding dress and headgear deserve to be seen!
Life. It. Above.

Such a fun and lovely way to party. And with that, one last nice thought from the team behind the day:
Although plans have changed for many couples, we really believe that celebration is about creating moments that you will cherish for a lifetime, regardless of size or location. With this minimalism, we wanted to remind all the amazing couples that social distancing is temporary, but love is forever.
