This Armour House Micro Wedding photographed by Lindsey Taylor Photography perfectly captures the intimacy and beauty that comes with micro-weddings. Sara Elizabeth Weddings designed and executed the creative flow that showcases intimate weddings at their best.
How They Met
“Alex and I met in the Spring/Summer of 2015 while we both lived in Chicago. Alex was living downtown and just starting out his career as a high school special education teacher. I was working for a social services agency and living with my cousin in the Bucktown/Logan Square neighborhood. On our first few dates we ventured all around the city: movies in Millenium Park, art exhibits at the Chicago Cultural Center, an afternoon at the Garfield Park Conservatory. We became official on August 21st of that year during a trip to Big Cedar Lake, Wisconsin.”
The Wedding Details
Proof that small doesn’t have to mean simple, florals from Willrett Flower Co. gave life to this space and design. Halls Rentals along with Elements Preserved Vintage Rentals and Jessica Draper Calligraphy added touches of romance and detail that did not go unnoticed.

Planning during a Pandemic
“Pretty early on in the pandemic, I started to doubt we would be able to move forward with our Memorial Day Weekend 2020 wedding. Sara and I were in touch throughout much of March and April to discuss various contingency plans. In such uncertain times, we realized that we wanted to get married soon, but we also wanted to be ‘Covid cautious’ and reduce risks as much as possible. Sara recommended a micro wedding at a venue close to our Chicago home- the Armour House at Lake Forest Academy later in the summer. We just wanted a day that would be safe and special with our immediate families.”
