Podcast Summary

In a recent episode of our podcast, we had the pleasure of hosting Mia Silvertooth, owner of The Taylor Stone Venue. Nestled in Louisville, Texas, near the Dallas Fort Worth area, The Taylor Stone distinguishes itself by focusing on small, intimate weddings and events. The venue is a family-owned historic property, originally built in 1901, adding a rich sense of history and charm to any event.

Mia shared that the venue promotes the emerging trend of micro weddings — smaller, more personalized nuptials that focus on intimacy, often falling within the budget of many prospective wedding couples. Born from her own experience as a wedding photographer and videographer, Mia noticed that many couples were investing a significant amount of their budget into venues far too large for their guests’ list, instead of adding unique personal touches or additional services to their event.

The Taylor Stone Venue aims to bridge this gap by offering an all-inclusive service in a charming and intimate setting for couples who desire their big day to be a cozy, personal affair. With its 980 square feet space, the venue also doubles as an ideal location for rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and other small events.

Housed in a historic building that originally served as a book binding store, The Taylor Stone is a gem tucked away behind trees, offering a unique contrast between its humble exterior and its stunning interior. The Venue’s focus on micro weddings, intimate gatherings, and a strong embrace of history are what sets it apart, making it a go-to location for those considering small-scale weddings. The Taylor Stone has tapped into the less-is-more philosophy, shaping its service to meet the unique needs of couples yearning for smaller, more meaningful celebrations.

Podcast Transcript

Andrew (00:24)
All right. Hey, hey, everybody. Welcome to another episode. I’m sitting here today with Mia Silvertooth of The Taylor Stone, which is a beautiful, historic, sort of family owned or is a family owned? I don’t know if it’s family owned. Maybe I’m making that part up, but it’s a, okay, great. Great. Yeah. So it’s, it’s The Taylor Stone, beautiful, historic kind of focuses on small intimate weddings, but it’s a beautiful venue in Louisville, Texas, which is near Dallas, the Dallas Fort Worth area. So, hey, Mia, glad you’re here. We’re all about supporting each other and kind of working together and coming together.

Mia (00:34)
It is, yes, it is. No, that’s fine.

Yeah, hello, I’m excited to be here. Yeah, of course, I’m super excited to talk about it. It is family owned. It was built in 1901, so it’s a historic little space. We’re focusing on micro weddings and micro events, small rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, little micro weddings, all that stuff.

Andrew (00:54)
So thanks for being here.

Awesome. Cool. Yeah. Micro weddings is something maybe people don’t hear a whole lot about. So we’ll have to get into that for sure. So tell us about you first though. So you spent a lot of time as a wedding photographer first and you kind of noticed something was missing. So tell us about how you got started.

Mia (01:20)
Yes. Yes. So I have been a wedding photographer for nine years this year. I’m still a wedding photographer and videographer. I noticed that there was kind of a gap in the market as I had a client that had a 60 guest count at a venue that basically fit about around 350 people. So and I asked them, I’m like, you know, what caused you guys to want to book this large of a venue? And they were like, you know what? In our budget, there really wasn’t anything.

for the price range you’re wanting to stay at, even though we had a small guest count. So this was like the best bet. And I saw a lot of couples instead of spending their money towards, you know, decor or like special things or special add -on vendor that they might like to have. A lot of their budget was going towards a venue instead, even though they were having a smaller guest count. And being in the wedding industry, I already loved what I did so much. And I wanted a space where I could create my own, you know, wedding photography in and kind of offer something all inclusive.

as well as offer couples that had a budget for a really beautiful, intimate wedding, but that just wanted something that is smaller to make it feel more intimate inside. So yeah, that’s how it was created. And I love shooting weddings. I can’t imagine doing anything else. And so I’ve kind of aimed my space towards only weddings, but we’ll get the occasional small party or rehearsal dinner and things too. But yeah, it’s been a hit with micro weddings, I guess is the term that came about the past few years.

Andrew (02:25)

Yeah. So how, how exactly, what, what size is the venue? Like what are, how, how small or intimate are we talking here?

Mia (02:46)
So it’s about 980 square feet. It has a little room that is for, I would say like a buffet getting ready area. Usually I’ll have couples have that as like the buffet space where they’ll have their catering set up in that little back room. It has a restroom and then it has the rest of it is just an open floor plan. It’s like a little square. And then from the outside, it doesn’t look like much. It’s kind of hidden tucked behind some trees. It’s within an area that’s like a little.

The whole it’s called old town Louisville. So it’s like an old area of Louisville was the first little city developed over here in the early 1900s and so it was originally a book binding store so like think of like an original brick and mortar little literal brick building and then it’s been used over the years for a few different things like They’ve never done with it what it could be used for. It’s absolutely beautiful in there. And so the second I saw it I was like I’ve got to have this space and

and the city had no idea what I was doing. When I was talking to the owner of the building, I was like, yeah, I want to make it an event space. And they were like, in this little room, like, are you sure? And then we made some changes in there. And yeah, now it’s awesome. So.

Andrew (03:54)

Yeah, I’m looking at pictures of it. It is, it is definitely they’ll have a historic look, as very much so with the X -Pros more than I can see now. that’s awesome. So micro weddings, that’s, that’s the thing that probably people.

Mia (04:04)
Yeah, everyone, a lot of couples say they.

What is it?

Andrew (04:09)
Go ahead, go ahead.

Mia (04:11)
I was just going to say that a lot of people say I’ve never been in Louisiana, but a lot of folks have said that it looks like wedding venues that are in Louisiana. So that’s kind of cool because it’s kind of, you know, like the bricks are exposed and it’s kind of like that fall apart look in there. So.

Andrew (04:20)

Yeah, it’s almost reminds me of like, yeah, like an old building you’d see in like the French Quarter or downtown or something like that.

Okay. so micro weddings are something that I think probably a lot of couples don’t even know what that is or that that’s an option. so can you, can you kind of describe a little bit about what makes a micro wedding and micro wedding? What are some of the benefits of having a micro wedding for people that might be interested if they’re, they’re overwhelmed by the large venues and large productions and they, they don’t need all that. but sometimes they feel like that’s all that’s out there. So tell us about kind of what that means.

Mia (04:56)
Of course, yeah. So micro weddings is basically 50 and under guest count. You can even say 100 folks and under. We could be considered a micro wedding. And a lot of venues actually will create custom packages because we actually love those kinds of weddings because they are so much more intimate. And the couples that those kinds of weddings bring we love because they are kind of intentional with their wedding planning. You know, your guest count’s smaller, so you’re more intentional about who’s coming, what kind of decor you have. You’re a lot more…

creative with it. And so at least that’s my experience of the kind of couples that I’ve had having the venue now. But it’s basically just having a really sweet, intimate wedding on a smaller scale. And just because it’s smaller doesn’t mean that it has to be less luxurious or less extravagant. You can still have like, I’ll get some couples and I have such a wide range. I’ll have some couples that say, we have a 10 person guest count. We just want to come in, get married, take some photos and leave. And then I have some couples that are like, okay, I’m bringing in.

this catering team, we’re bringing in all our own tables and chairs. We’re making it like over the top because they still have a budget for a larger wedding, but they only want to invite, you know, 20 to 50 folks. And so they can really transform a space when you find a great micro wedding venue, because you can, you know, do a lot more with your budget decor wise and music and catering and stationary, all of those things. And your photographer, photographer team, you can create a lot more when you have less money spent on the venue.

Andrew (05:53)

Mia (06:23)
So it’s been a hit since COVID, I would say. Since then, couples have been deciding to go smaller.

Andrew (06:25)
Yeah, that sounds really,

Yeah, that makes perfect sense. I think that that’s a resource that a lot of people probably don’t realize is out there. So that’s a very powerful thing for sure.

So What is your favorite feature of The Taylor Stone? I mean, you described a lot of different things about it, but if you had to pick one sort of notable feature that is your favorite, what would you say it is?

Mia (06:44)
So my favorite feature is in the evening, we do have string lights covering the ceiling. And in the evening time, myself or whatever photographer my couple has hired is able to go outside and the windows are completely transparent so you can see everybody through the windows. So it’s kind of a cool take of being able to grasp the entire feel of the evening through the windows. So.

one of my favorite features. We have a chandelier inside so a lot of the times my couple do their last private dance. They’ll be dancing underneath the chandelier and I like to go outside and capture that through the window so it’s kind of like a it encompasses the whole feeling of the night.

Andrew (07:18)
yeah, I can imagine that. Yeah. That’s very, quintessential, but like in a good way, you know, in sort of a beautiful frozen moment way I can, I can picture, picture that for sure. okay, cool. So let’s talk a little bit about kind of your experience, like in the industry,

Mia (07:27)
Yes. Yes. Definitely.

Andrew (07:36)
So how long have you been doing this with the Taylor Stone? I know you’ve been in the wedding industry for a while as a photographer, but how long have you guys been open and doing your venue stuff over at the Taylor Stone?

Mia (07:45)
So we’ve been open for one year this month.

Andrew (07:47)
okay, cool. So this is a fairly new project that you’ve kind of embarked on.

Mia (07:52)
Definitely, definitely I was saving and I kind of, I’m a very like go all in kind of person with anything business oriented. So I had been seeing this place for a very long time and the second it was on the market, I just had to get it because I would like, I would go by and this isn’t, it’s not too far from my house. I would go by and I would look through the window like creeper, cause I would see it over here and I loved it so much. And it was almost just like fate that it.

Andrew (08:01)
Mm -hmm.

Ha ha ha.

Mia (08:19)
worked out the way it did because I was too scared to jump into something too, too large. as my first time having a venue. and so it was the perfect space, to kind of create. And every time I go in there, it’s like, I don’t want to leave no matter what it’s we’re doing in there, what type of wedding or meeting or anything. It’s just, it’s such a great feeling and I don’t ever want to leave the space. So.

Andrew (08:25)

Yeah. Well, sometimes the universe just speaks to you and you got to kind of jump on it, you know, so glad you took that leap. okay. So now that you’re, you’ve already been in the wedding industry for awhile, but now you’re in the event sort of side of things too. So what are some current trends that you’re seeing, in the wedding event industry in your area? I know you specialize in micro weddings and smaller events, but, What have you seen that’s, that’s changed maybe versus when you were a photographer years in your past or when you first started the venue, to today, what, what changes and trends are you seeing?

Mia (08:43)
Yes, seriously. Definitely.

So trends -wise, on a large scale for larger weddings or my smaller weddings, I would say intentional details. Definitely like the documentary style, having less emphasis on, I guess, the posed moments of the day and rather the guest experience. So, you know, I’ve noticed couples hiring vendors that are really unique, something different. Everyone’s trying to do something new and innovative.

rather than the same old traditional wedding. And a lot of that is with, I wouldn’t say as much catering, you know, catering standard, everyone just wants to eat something good and yummy and buffet -wise. But like color trends and like the style of things. I feel like no weddings I’m shooting or hosting are the same. Like every single wedding is a little bit different and unique in its own way. And I think that’s a lot of tell of the how couples are just wanting really to create something that’s very them.

and documenting it that way as well. Like they’re not as big and worried about the perfect moment, rather capturing it, how it really felt. and that’s really translating in details and the venues that my couples are booking and the clients and also like the client relationships. I feel like all the vendors that I’m working with all really get to know their couples, which is kind of a newer thing. Like I feel like years ago, you know, couples were just hiring me and I would never have contact with them prior to wedding day. You know, they would just book me and I’m just so

worker basically. And then now it’s couples are like, hey, we want you to come to our rehearsal dinner, even if it’s at the space or like we want you to be there and hang out with us, not to work, but like to get to know us and be more involved. And I feel like that’s kind of the term that they’ve taken with a lot of their vendors. Like the vendor teams I’m meeting on wedding days are like, hey, we’ve all met this couple a few times. We’ve all hung out together already. And it’s much more involved in the industry now than it used to be. I feel like.

Andrew (10:48)
Mm -hmm.


Yeah, I would agree with you for sure. We tend to see, and that’s the answer I get a lot of the times is basically a deviation from non -traditional sort of traditions, you know, different things that you see for standard of weddings for decades. and being a doing pianos company, you know, with people that hire us for entertainment, we almost always are involved with one of those because they’re already trying to go out of the box with entertainment. So, you know, I would agree for sure. We see that same trend and we’ve seen all, I’ve seen all kinds of interesting stuff. I saw.

Mia (11:04)
Mm -hmm.


Andrew (11:28)
Everybody had a bunch of people come out like the groom party disappeared and then everybody came back out dressed in like Yoshi suits. That was a really weird one. I saw like a robot disco ball dancer people on stilts at a wedding last week that I did. So it’s getting out there for sure. Yeah. Yeah, it was really

Mia (11:36)
my gosh.

Amazing. my gosh. I bet that was so unique. Is your, is your, when you’re, are your, when you’re performing, are you, cause I’ve never been to, I’ve never seen Julie Piano’s in real life. I’ve only seen videos and things. Is it, but I’ve heard that it’s like such a big energy. Do you feel that way? Do you feel like what you’re doing is, is it a lot of energy that you’re having to give? Is it something that only works better with larger crowds or can smaller scale events hire you guys as well?

Andrew (12:11)
Yeah, I know it can be across the board. and it’s, it really is a large spectrum and, the doing piano players are sort of trained to, to fill the vessel or the room that they’re put into. so small intimate settings can go over very, very well, huge weddings with lots of energy to push and lean. A lot of dancing can go very well as, as well. And, yeah, it’s, it’s all about crowd interaction. So it’s designing people dancing and participating and coming up and they’re, you’re part of the show. You know, it’s not just, watching a band perform.

Mia (12:15)
Mm -hmm.


Andrew (12:41)
yeah, it’s a lot of fun for sure. If you haven’t checked it out, you should definitely go check it out. okay. So a real quick question. Are you, so do you just do your venue only or you do you have, do you do, do you do photography as well? Still too. Is that only at your venue? Do you do photography at other venues on top of it? Do you have planning services at the venue? How does all that kind of work together?

Mia (12:41)
Very cool.

Yeah, definitely.

Yes, so we, I am a photographer outside of the space. I travel all over Texas. We just had a wedding in California this last weekend, which I won’t be traveling that far again. So definitely within Texas, we’ll be staying to shoot. But I shoot photo and video and I have a team that comes with me as well. And then same thing for the venue. I have a handful of coordinators that I love and trust that will come in because we try to be as all inclusive as possible. So, and especially style wise, like that was very important for me is.

Andrew (13:13)
Ha ha.

Mia (13:29)
I don’t ever want to steer a client in the direction of other vendors and them not be the same quality that I would produce. So if I’m unavailable, then I have a handful of photographers and videographers that I love to send their way depending on what kind of style they’re wanting. And then same thing with coordinating as well. So we have in -house coordinating and floral. So floral is through my family. So we are family owned and operated. Sorry, I don’t know what that is.

So we’re family owned and operated and so my family does do all the floral and then I have coordinators and other photographers and videographers who come as well.

Andrew (13:56)
No worries.

Beautiful. Yeah. That’s a powerful thing too. I think that comes with the network sort of of trusted people and couples trusting their vendors and knowing them. that goes along with vendors, knowing vendors and working together and trusting each other, which is kind of what we’re trying to do with all, with all this outreach stuff, you know, kind of build that network. okay, great. So let’s, let’s kind of move along here a little bit. So, what are some things that couples should never do? Some cringe worthy things that you hate seeing at your events, whether the ones you’ve your photography, do photography at other venues or your venue in particular.

Mia (14:12)


Andrew (14:31)
Tell me some horror stories. What do you got?

Mia (14:33)
my gosh, cringe things. I’ve had so many cringe things happening. I feel like I’m gonna get like in trouble for this. I think the most cringe thing for me, and this is just, I know, I know, this is just like a personal preference, but like when couples say super cheesy inside jokes and their vows, I know as a wedding vendor, we’re always like, God, it’s cringe to us. Like, especially going back to edit films or like,

Andrew (14:41)
Ha ha.

You don’t have to drop any names, of course.

Mia (15:03)
later on in the night. Okay, this part’s a little cringe, but it’s something that I also love. I love when I’m videoing a wedding and I go back and at the end of the night, I’ll usually ask them at the wedding party, like after they’ve drank a little bit, I’ll ask them some questions about the couple. And sometimes I’ll make my couples like a little bit of a short extra little film of just like crazy cringe things they’ve said. It’s usually not appropriate enough to put in their actual wedding film. So I love to add that in usually.

Andrew (15:27)

Mia (15:30)
I’ve had horror stories wise, a few weeks ago I had a groom walk down the aisle and say he didn’t want, he could not get married. And so we just continued on the night and had dinner with the bride and everything. So yeah, that’s the most, that’s the craziest story that I have. Cause that hasn’t ever happened to me. So that was the first, it was, it was, I was like, I don’t know. And so, yeah, I’ll never post it or anything, but I definitely have that for myself that that.

Andrew (15:43)

Wow, that’s movie quality right there.

Mia (15:58)
That goes in my back pocket as the craziest thing that’s ever happened during a wedding for sure. Yes. Yes.

Andrew (16:02)
Yeah, that’s a good story for sure. Okay, so what about on the flip side of that? What’s the what is the most fun or unique idea you’ve seen at a recent wedding or event that you’ve either attended or had at your venue?

Mia (16:16)
Okay, the most fun, let me think. Okay, so I’ve had a few couples that go instead of opting to have a first dance right after like their grand entrance, you know, or like during the dinner reception portion. I’ve had couples lately that after their ceremony, as they exit out and guests are all outside, they begin their first dance with their, like I’ve seen some mariachi, I’ve seen some…

DJs, I’ve seen some live violinists and things, all different types. It’s usually the best with live music, I would say. But they’ll have their first dance immediately following ceremony, which I think is pretty unique and interesting. And a lot of times that I’ve seen lately, especially at the venue, we have a little courtyard outside. And so guests will all go outside and they are huddled around the couple. And it’s a very intimate moment where everyone’s really paying attention to their first dance. As you know, sometimes it gets kind of lost.

right after grand entrance and people are like, okay, we’re ready to eat and they’re not as involved in the dance. But I think everyone kind of standing around and witnessing it makes for like a really, really just special sweet moment that is new. It’s something new I’ve seen.

Andrew (17:12)

Yeah, that’s, that’s, I can imagine that being sort of a really intimate setting because you have everybody’s attention. Not that it’s about having your people’s attention, but I could see the atmosphere that it would, would create with your friends and family really being there and kind of being a part of it almost as opposed to just being on the sidelines. You know, I can, that’s really cool. I have not seen that one yet. okay. Next.

Mia (17:29)

Thank you.

Yeah, definitely, especially capturing like all of the parents’ faces and expressions and everything as they’re doing their first dance and kind of getting a different look on it. Because you know, when you’re in a big room, it’s hard to get everyone’s emotions on camera. But in that moment, they’re all right there. And so it’s a little bit, a little extra.

Andrew (17:45)

Yeah, I love that. That’s kind of a beautiful, beautiful idea. okay. So next question I have for you, Is there any advice you can offer for somebody that’s just starting on their sort of journey in the wedding or event industry, whether that’s photography, planning, you know, stepping into the venue management or a venue role. what, what advice would you have given your previous self or to somebody that’s just starting out?

Mia (18:18)
my goodness, okay, my best advice is there is something called imposter syndrome, which is basically, have you heard that term before?

Andrew (18:27)
yes, yes. I know it.

Mia (18:28)
Impostor syndrome. Okay, so it’s basically to others. I don’t know It’s it’s a feeling you feel when you’re seeing someone else’s work and you’re like, I’ll never be that good I don’t even want to do this anymore. No and Luckily when I started social media, this is gonna make me sound so old but social media wasn’t really like happening yet So there was no other photographers to compare myself to in that sense Like I was still having to go, you know business to business and hand out cards. So I wasn’t having

any type of comparison as much on social media. So it took me a lot longer to grow my business and then to eventually get the venue. Whereas now, you know, there’s so much ability to go online and look at all these huge Vogue weddings or these planners that are, you know, styling these insane weddings that already have 20 years under their belt. So my biggest point of advice would be, do not compare yourself to what you see online. Look at things as an end goal of what you would like to create, whether that’s…

Andrew (19:11)

Mia (19:22)
be running a venue, opening your own venue, photography, video, planning, whatever it may be, whatever avenue it is of the industry that you’re interested in, just do what you love and your clients will come. There’s millions and millions of weddings all around the world every year and you will book a few of them. It’s just about letting your own personality shine through in what you’re doing and not allowing the influence of social media and the famous different vendors to get under your skin of thinking that.

you feeling like you’re inadequate compared to them because you might not have as many bookings or any of that. So really just focusing on your own talent and being proud of that and showcasing that rather than trying to compare yourself so heavily to other vendors.

Andrew (20:07)
Yeah, that’s a beautiful sentiment. I think there’s, that’s probably true of many, many industries. You know, you never get started because you think you’ll never make it to the top or you’ll, you know, or you don’t have immediate success. So you get deterred. but yeah, I mean, you got to start somewhere. And if you just lead into it and, kind of trust in yourself, most other people, a lot of other people will give up, you know, which if you don’t, you’re, that’s kind of how you make it. I think to that, to that, select group, you know, at the end of the line kind of thing, but yeah, that’s beautiful advice.

Mia (20:15)


Mm -hmm.


Andrew (20:35)
okay. So let’s get some, to some of the sort of logistical stuff, over at The Taylor Stone for anybody that might be interested in checking it out. or has been peaked by the idea of a micro wedding, which I think will appeal to a lot of people. I’ve never heard of that. And I’m kind of excited to share that with people because, a lot of the clients we get, we, we help to find other vendors and venues. Cause we work with a lot of venues as I’m sure you do the same kind of network you were talking about. so I’m excited to kind of put that idea into, conversations that I have, cause I can already think of many spaces where.

Mia (20:44)


Andrew (21:04)
people are struggling to find venues and, working with their budget and all that stuff. So, this is gonna be really cool, but let’s talk about the venue a little bit more. So, how is your current availability? How far in advance are you booked? what kind of flexibility do you have in terms of like guest count changes or things like that?

Mia (21:09)

So we have very sporadic booking. It totally depends. We are booking in 2025 now. We have, I think, two or three more fall dates available for this year, but we do have some open availability for next year. We’re not booking for 2026 just yet, just because you never know. We’re waiting a little bit until into next year till we start booking for the following year. But definitely, yeah, it’s very flexible schedule -wise. But as far as…

I know like some larger venues, since we are smaller, it is a lot easier for that flexibility. We have a creative meeting with our couples a month out and then a week out from wedding day so that we are able to just nail down all details. Also, if you have coordination books through us, we nail down your timeline. We reach out to all the vendors and all of that so that you guys don’t, the couples don’t have any stress for that. But of course I’ll have, I have some couples that, you know, at their final week meeting, they’re like, hey, our guest count went from 32 to

and it’s totally fine. We have accommodations for that. It just kind of means we’ve got to sit down, rework the floor plan and things, but nothing we can’t handle as long as it’s not overt capacity. But yeah, it’s especially on a smaller scale. I think it is, you know, a little bit more of a relaxed clientele. So they are like, well, two more people dropped off and then they’re kind of not too worried about it. So we’re super flexible in that, in that regard.

Andrew (22:43)
Cool. so I’m sure in that kind of similar events, do you have that flexibility? And obviously one of the main appeals of a micro wedding, I’m sure is the cost, right? So, can you give us kind of an average event size or cost at The Taylor Stone? I mean, what kind of, what kind of budget differences are we talking here? You know, for somebody that might be loving this idea of a micro wedding, what kind of costs and, and, and size do we, do you see at your venue?

Mia (22:52)
Mm -hmm.

So our smallest collection is five hours, and that includes the space, tables, chairs, linen, sound system, and really the shell of the room. So you can bring in all of your own things.

for a five hour rental, which is our smallest collection, that’s $1,500. And then that’s, you know, basically the shell of a space, tables, chairs, linens, all of that. And that’s really for the couple that’s like, hey, we don’t need all the bells and whistles. We’re coming in and we want the tables, chairs, linens, sound system. Like we’re just hanging out, having some catering, no big deal. And then we have a range of course, like, and so, I mean, you can, let’s say you add on photo.

the space for the full day, floral can get crazy. So that’s kind of hard to give a range for floral. But I would say the average wedding that includes floral, photo, the space, coordination, all of that is right around $3 ,500, $4 ,000.

Andrew (24:03)
Wow. Okay. Yeah, that’s definitely, I can see the appeal right away for sure.

Mia (24:07)

Andrew (24:08)
What about a deposit? How do you guys work with your deposit or your cancellations? What kind of policies do you guys have in place for that stuff?

So deposit wise it’s 50 % due day of booking and then 50 % due day of wedding. So whatever you’re including on our end, whether that’s floral, venue, photo, anything in between that you’ve done rental wise through us will be included in the initial contract. And then 50 % of that is due the day that you book. And then the remainder isn’t due until later, just in case you decide to add on extra florals or more time photo wise or an extra shoot or anything, any of the variables.

That can all be tacked on later and isn’t due until wedding day.

Got you. So what’s the maximum capacity you guys have? I mean, I know micro is obviously small, but what’s the max capacity that you guys have?

Mia (24:54)
So seated is 45 guests and that’s at like maximum seated. And then with our, like with your vendors and things you have to take into account, sometimes people will say, well your max capacity is 50, we have 50 guests. And they’re not including themselves or, you know, a DJ or a bartender or their photo and video team or the caterers. So max capacity, 50 people can be in the room together. I try to always say have 45 or less guests. Our most popular seating, which is like the U shape fits a max of 42.

So I always try to explain that to guests that if you’re wanting kind of what you’re seeing pictured to be completely transparent, only 42 people fit in that seating arrangement. And then if you, you know, if you want to have a certain amount of vendors and things, you have to take that into account as well. But 50 people max.
