Dumbarton House wedding reception - lily of the valley

Dumbarton House Micro Wedding

This delightful, cheerful Spring micro wedding at Dumbarton House was such a treat to work on. The nicest families you could find. Everyone was recently vaccinated in April of 2021 and feeling positive about the future.

The Jewish ceremony occurred under a chuppah, included a kiddush and motzi, and concluded with the breaking of a glass.

Dumbarton House Wedding Portraits

A great wedding venue, like Dumbarton House, is going to have a plethora of photo opportunities for your wedding day. Dumbarton House has no shortage of these lovely spots, as you will see below!

Micro Wedding Cocktail Hour

We did the Hora, a traditional Jewish wedding dance at the end of the cocktail hour. We did this out in the grass to help people feel more comfortable being close together for a few minutes. No matter where a hora takes place, the photos that are made from it are fantastic.

Dumbarton House Tented Wedding Reception

This Dumbarton House micro wedding used only the tent for the wedding reception. We spaced out the tables and seated family units together. The DJ was set up inside, with a speaker in the tent. The cakes were driven in from New York by the groom’s family and were a very sweet addition.
