Although Dave and Meredith were married in 2014, their wedding is a strikingly relevant model of a wedding for our current times. They started with a 9-person winter microwedding at Cambridge City Hall followed by dinner at Craigie on Main. (10 people or less, am I right?) Then, in the summer, they threw a big tented backyard wedding on the North Fork in Long Island for 100+ family and friends.

Dave & Meredith were together for a long time before they decided to get married and when they eventually decided to shift from “married in spirit” to actually legally married, it wasn’t for the most romantic reasons. But that didn’t stop them from being thoughtful, intentional, and downright creative with the festivities to celebrate the occasion. And they retell it all with humor and charm. (I LOL’d so many times when listening back to this one!)

Some of the highlights include:

  • The merits of a big vs. a small celebration (and how to have the best of both).
  • Why photography is such an important part of the day. (I swear, I didn’t pay them for this plug!)
  • The logistics (and benefits) of planning a wedding at a private backyard venue.
  • A slew of awesome Long Island wedding vendor recommendations
