When you’re forced to downsize your wedding in the midst of a pandemic, there are ways to make the most out of any situation.
Ian & Alyssa were originally planning to get married at Vesica Piscis Chapel on their 6 year anniversary (November 21, 2020), but after much consideration, they chose to move their big party to next year & have an intimate ceremony with just family & wedding party – elopement style. While on the hunt for a smaller venue to host their microwedding, I noticed that The Canopy Tulsa had just had it’s opening in the Tulsa Arts District – the bustling part of town full of local shopping & good eats. Alyssa took my suggestion & ran with it – she reserved the botanical event venue & a room at 21 1/2 Boutique Hotel just next door.
The Canopy Tulsa is a brand new addition to Tulsa’s wedding industry and a much welcomed one at that. The space is an urban greenhouse in the heart of downtown & features multiple skylights, a variety of tropical plants, and 17 foot tall ceilings. It’s the perfect backdrop for all of your lush, industrial dreams.
As sad as it was for Ian & Alyssa when choosing to postpone the wedding celebration, there are several silver linings. 1. “That it isn’t the number of people at your wedding that makes it special, but the quality of the loved ones who share it with you.” 2. Because of the change in venue, Ian & Alyssa will now have a large variety of wedding photos to choose from. 3. After the ceremony, we had the time to carpool around Tulsa and capture many different parts of the downtown area, including rain into the evening. Which, I have to say, rain was the best way for us to end the night with the way it romanticizes everything & creates such dreamy photo results. Ian & Alyssa feel the same.
