Micro Weddings

Is a Mini, Micro, Bubble Wedding, or Elopement Better For You?

All-Inclusive Intimate Wedding & Elopement Packages are now being offered at Affordable Prices to Make Your Dreams Come True! We want to make your celebration easy with a seamless plan with our Mini, Micro wedding, and Elopement offerings. Our creative team with over thirty years of experience in the luxury wedding market has designed top-notch packages for you to enjoy your special day at a fraction of the cost.

An Elopement, used to be considered a spur-of-the-moment and unplanned event involving an element of secrecy. Today, there is still an air of sweeping romance involved in elopements. Usually an elopement, which is usually planned and attended only by the couple (and a witness) and often performed in secret (though not always), can have up to six guests.

A Mini Wedding is considered a commitment ceremony between you and your partner, and it can include up to 10 people. Many couples who’ve had to postpone their nuptials (millions through summer 2020, in fact) are encouraged to consider a Mini to honor their original wedding date or to move forward with this option for legal purposes. Having a Mini wedding allows you to solidify your union or to honor your first proposed date. Further down the line, throwing a sequel wedding will bring your larger wedding vision to life.

A Micro Wedding, like its name suggests, will typically include a guest list of up to 50 guests—often immediate family and super-close friends only. Though small in guest count, a micro wedding differs from a minimony. Plus, it isn’t an elopement, think of a microwedding as a cross between an elopement and a big, traditional wedding—and it might just be the perfect compromise to suit your style.

A Bubble Wedding is an exclusive offering from LeFay Cottage at Little Washington and is designed for all sized ceremonies held at the cottage. A member of the wedding party or guest may require an individual social bubble isolation for a heightened level of safety. The spheres will accommodate a bubble bride for an all the more memorable glide down the aisle with bubble machines and large bubbles devising unique photo opportunities and reception fun for all ages.

COVID-19 Protocols for Safety & Peace of Mind

We are committed to exceeding all sanitary measures for a safe wedding during the time of COVID-19.  That way we ensure that you and your loved ones will have a safe day at your Mini, Micro, Bubble Wedding or Elopement Ceremony, leaving you to enjoy the moment without having to worry about health concerns. We know making a commitment in times of uncertainty can be unsettling and we don’t want our couples to be concerned about taking this risk. We will be following the CDC cleaning recommendations and local state guidelines to the fullest. We will be adhering to all pertinent and applicable recommendations presented by authorities regarding the best and required practices by the time of your event.

Affordable & ALL Inclusive

Executing a wedding of this caliber would normally be a much higher price but we want to make your special day possible and AFFORDABLE during the COVID-19 pandemic. You will be getting a luxury wedding at a fraction of the cost.

Can I customize my celebration in any way?

Absolutely! You will be able to: a) customize your ceremony in full, b) choose the music to be performed by your musician, c) pick color variation and design of your personal flowers (i.e, bouquet/boutonniere/archway), d) choose your cake colors and flavor, and general preferences, e) provide a specific list of photo groupings and specify all your photo groupings and general preferences.

Can I pick my own vendors?

Our All-Inclusive Wedding packages are designed so that you have nothing to worry about, and that includes selecting your vendors. We have a key lineup of vendors and creatives for each event, and we have intentionally partnered ONLY with exceptional local vendors, whose services and products are up to the high standards of our brand.

What happens if my date arrives but there are COVID-19 related restrictions still in place?

We have designed packages to accommodate up to 50 guests precisely with the intention of making it as resilient as possible to the current crisis and the possible future restriction on size gatherings. However, if your date is nearing and there are official restrictions in place that impede your event of 50 guests from happening, your deposit will become fully refundable, minus a US $350 processing fee.

What if we want to add-in services/vendors to our package?

You can certainly add-on services or vendors to your package. For example, if you want to add a videographer, professional hair and makeup services, printed invitations or ceremony programs, we will provide you complimentary recommendations. For any vendor addeded that will take an active role during the two hours of your event (e.g., videographer), an additional management fee of US$300 per each vendor will apply.

What Our Happy Customers Say About Us

We couldn’t be happier with our experience at LeFay Cottage. It was as if the whole weekend was a dream… We were looking for a last-minute location to get married that was in the country, yet close enough to go to dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. We wanted to have something small and unique, and Sally Anne was so helpful from the moment we reached out. She was easy to work with and had helpful suggestions that ended up making the day so much more special. The cottage and grounds are so beautiful with so many unique touches from the faeries on the gates at the entrance to the beautiful artwork inside. Each of the three bedrooms has its own personality and the two full baths allowed our wedding group to get ready comfortably. 

There were a lot of locations on the property we could have had our ceremony set up, but we opted for an indoor wedding because of the temperature and everything worked out so well. The space suited our needs and the lighting was perfect for the photographer. The wedding packages were awesome for us and helped reduce the stress we had in making plans. Sally Anne was able to work with our needs and provided us with a package that made it the perfect day for us. From the suggestions for a bridal shop, to providing an excellent and easy to work with photographer, the gorgeous flowers, the civil celebrant, and all the little details at the venue itself. Everything went off without a hitch. Sally Anne’s personal touch made everything so simple and easy that we had no worries as the day unfolded and we appreciate everything she did for us. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect day. Our experience at LeFay Cottage was amazing and made for a lifetime of memories.
