What will the timeline look like?

Micro-weddings are more structured in comparison to a traditional elopement. There has to be a timeline or guide as to how the day will play out. That said, the “day” is typically much shorter than a traditional full-scale large wedding and takes place closer to sunset. At Catalyst Ranch we are masters at creating the perfect timeline! A sample timeline is as follows:

4:00 pm – Reservation Begins
5:00 pm – Couple & Group Portraits at Venue
5:30 pm – Ceremony Begins (Invitation Time)
6:00 pm – Bar Opens, Cocktail Hour Begins
7:00 pm – Dinner is Served, Toasts
8:00 pm – Dance Floor Opens, Couple’s First Dance
8:30 pm – Cake Cutting, Dessert is Served
9:30 pm – Last Call
10:00 pm – Event Ends, Guests Depart
11:00 pm – Reservation Ends
