Company 421’s First Pop-Up Wedding! Ruby & Steven

What is a pop-up wedding? I’d love to tell you.

A pop-up wedding is a new concept created by Hillary, the owner of Company 421 and Hillar Rae Events! I like to think of it as the love child of an intimate wedding and a courthouse wedding, with all the planning done for you!

No, seriously! Invite 40 of your closest loved ones, buy your attire, show up, and enjoy the wedding Hillary has designed for you.

She takes care of the florals, the decor, the dessert, the pastor, the linens, the bar, and the appetizers. ALL OF IT. As a past COVID bride, let me just say…”sign me up.”

So you may be wondering, how does it work? How do you possibly capture an entire wedding day in 2 hours? It may not seem like a ton of time, but in that amount of time we accomplished:

– first look
– family formal portraits
– wedding party portraits
– bridal portraits
– ceremony
– speeches
– appetizers
– first dances
– cake cutting
– open dancing
– a TON of mingling with guests

When considering a pop-up wedding, think of what life could be like AFTER the wedding day? By spending less, while still having a pretty day, you could:

  1. Buy a house
  2. Go on a honeymoon
  3. Pay off debt

And that is just to name a few! Now, with that being said, I do think it is important to remember that it isn’t a full wedding day so there will be some things you won’t have documented. Think your morning getting ready, getting into your dress, flat lay details, etc. This pop-up wedding experience is focused on the time spent with your nearest and dearest. Being the sentimental sap that I am, I think that is the most important part of the whole day!

Ruby and Steven, I wish you all the best as you begin your life as husband and wife! It was such a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to your first session as a married couple later this summer!
