Tiny Weddings is a full-service elopement & intimate wedding experience. Even the smallest of ceremonies can be overwhelming and you feel like it doesn’t make sense to hire a planner, so you procrastinate in frustration. That’s where we will help you. We offer services ranging from wedding day photography to full planning of your tiny wedding.

Oh, and how tiny is a tiny wedding? We limit our services to about 40 guests for the most intimate wedding experience.


Most wedding venues are geared toward larger weddings. You just need a beautiful space for a small gathering of people. We have done the work to find Charlotte’s hidden gem wedding locations & can help find the perfect one for you.

I didn’t want to make my 30 guests stand for my short ceremony, but I also stressed over who was going to pick up the chairs, set them up, break them down and bring them back. Whether you need a few chairs, tables or linens, we can take care of it for you!

intimate wedding flowers charlotte nc

When I was planning my wedding, a lot of florists had minimums that I couldn’t meet. I just needed a few simple table arrangements, a bridal bouquet, a boutonnière and some toss flowers for our ceremony exit. After ordering my wedding flowers from a wholesaler, they took up our whole apartment kitchen and I stayed up until midnight on our wedding eve stressing over making and delivering our arrangements. I thought I could do it all myself, but I wish I’d asked for help. Moral of the story: let us make your intimate wedding flower arrangements! After all, aren’t you having a tiny wedding in order to avoid wedding stress?


Tell us your favorite flavor and colors. We will provide a delicious, small cake & a bottle of champagne for your “cake cutting” photo op!

“I believe in the experience of Tiny Weddings because I had one. In 2015, I married my husband in a city-owned garden with 30 guests and no wedding party. Our dog walked down the aisle with us and we had an intimate dinner at a brewery. It was perfectly us and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
