Who says weddings have to be big to be beautiful? Julia and Ryan’s micro wedding in her family’s backyard was an intimate and lovely celebration.
The plans for this day were underway prior to the province opening up ceremonies to 50 people, so it was just the couple, their immediate family, the officiant and myself for a grand total of 10.
This was supposed to be the couple’s original wedding date. Although they’ve postponed their bigger celebration, it was still important to them to make it official on the date they originally intended.
And how lovely it was.
Wedding planner Karina Lemke organized and put everything together. If there were ever a time where a wedding planner is worth their weight in gold, it’s during this crisis. Planners everywhere are helping their couples navigate the strange and stressful waters of postponements, micro weddings, and everything in between. If you’re a bride or groom in a similar situation, I highly recommend reaching out to one of the many Toronto wedding planners to help you.
Flowers from Cool Green and Shady really elevated the look and feel of the day, making it extra special. Julia and Ryan got MARRIED on this day, and of course it should be treated with beauty and care. I encourage all couples planning a similar celebration to take the steps needed to make it look, and more importantly, feel as significant as it is.
Flowers, champagne, hors d’oeuvres, and lovely little touches go a long way.
A micro backyard wedding is a perfect way to turn what would otherwise be a really difficult day into something meaningful, beautiful, and memorable.
I hope these photos serve has very happy reminders of a very special day for the rest of Julia and Ryan’s lives!
