Michelle & Noah’s Ontario Cottage Micro-wedding

We are completely and utterly smitten with these two. Like many couples in 2020, Noah & Michelle were forced to adjust their wedding plans in a way they never saw coming. They always knew they wanted to tie the knot at Michelle’s family cottage in Minden, Ontario because they had spent all their summers at the lake. The original plan was to celebrate with their friends, family and community (nearly 200 guests!) but with the pandemic it became impossible.

We were so inspired as we watched Noah & Michelle gracefully roll with the punches. They stayed positive and worked on a new plan. They lowered their guest list from 200 to just 10 family members, and organized a simple and laid-back day at the cottage.

One of the coolest parts about intimate weddings is how you can allocate your budget to the products, services, and experiences you value most. When Noah & Michelle scaled down their guest list, they decided to treat their loved ones to a culinary experience they’d never forget. They enjoyed a 7-course meal under the stars, pausing between courses for the sweetest speeches. It was special, meaningful, and most importantly .. delicious.

In the end, their wedding was an honest reflection of who they are and what they love. We were thrilled to witness Noah & Michelle tie the knot and are so excited to share the many beautiful and emotion-filled moments with you below.
