Backyard Barrie microwedding with fall colours

Couple portraits at sunset for Barrie microwedding

Microwedding at a waterfront backyard in Barrie, Ontario

Barrie, Ontario is my home-away-from-home (this is where my husband was born and raised), and it was such a retreat from the summer of COVID to spend time up there for Ryan and Brigette’s Barrie microwedding!

Which brings us to the purpose of this post and a question that’s been on my mind…How do you describe a friendship that starts up so easily it’s hard to believe you haven’t known each other for years? I get the impression that I’m not the only one who feels this way after meeting Brigette and Ryan, as they’re almost impossible not to love! Ryan is outgoing, with a love for music and always seems to have just the right words to make everyone in the room laugh (I was cracking up the entire wedding!!)…and Brigette can light up any room with her smile and has and that kind soul that makes you feel welcomed even in a crowd of new people. Together, they’re a team that makes even an unusual COVID microwedding seem normal and if it were not for the small size of the wedding, you would hardly have known this wasn’t the wedding they’d been planning all along. Every detail of their day seemed so well thought out: from the bohemian floral arch; to the vintage dishes and colourful tableware; to the very fact that the trees on the front lawn (which Brigette’s mum swears are usually bare by the middle of October) hung its brilliant yellow foliage over the ceremony. The sun also stayed out with us the entire day and kept us warm, despite this being a late fall wedding. To summarize, it was the perfect day for this perfect match!

Enjoy these backyard Barrie microwedding photos with all the splendour of fall’s colours, and all the creativity and warmth of Brigette and Ryan!
