Classic and Timeless Northern Michigan Intimate Wedding

Lindsey grew up in Northern Michigan and met her now husband Richard in Leland where they worked at a local lodge in the summer. When they fell in love and were engaged, they knew that Northern Michigan had to be the location for their wedding.

With 2020 being as crazy as it was, their wedding venue also happened to go up for sale and was sold before their wedding. They could no longer have the option of postponing and decided to send out one of Northern Michigan’s most cherished venues with a bang, Cherry Basket Farms and Epicure catering. Their Labor Day weekend intimate wedding was absolutely amazing with a bonfire cocktail hour, al fresco candlelit dinner, and their closest family and friends. 

Even if you’re not from Michigan, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the North Country. It’s renowned for its untouched wilderness, towering forests, and crystal-clear lakes. With so much natural beauty to offer, it’s no surprise that many couples choose to have their weddings in this picturesque region.

How did you meet? We worked together! My husband was the chef at a local resort and I worked the front desk.

What is your proposal story? He proposed at our favorite beach during a winter walk with our dog.

Tell us a little a bit about your wedding. We wanted something classic, timeless, and simple! The venue was located in my hometown and their catering team is phenomenal.

Tell us about your attire choices. My dress was classic with minimal lace! And the bridesmaid dresses were a light green with my sister, the matron of honor, in a dark a green dress. The two colors looked amazing next to the men in their black.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? The venue and food were two of the most important for us! We wanted a venue that was a great representation of Northern Michigan and we couldn’t be happier with Cherry Basket Farm.
