Prepare to fall head over heels for this enchanting country wedding at French Valley Vineyards in Lake Leelanau, Michigan, exquisitely captured by Dan and Melissa Photography. The recently restored Centennial Event Barn was a rustic, yet elegant reception site. The bride looked divine in her romantic lace gown, and her groom looked strikingly handsome in his white military uniform. The lovely couple shared their first kiss as a married couple beneath a traditional arch of military swords. We adore the darling desserts table with a cake and assorted cupcakes.
With breathtaking views reminiscent of French vineyards and a reasonable drive from Chicago, Michigan wineries are an excellent option for mini-destination weddings. In fact, Michigan truly is wine country with more than 93 wineries and 14,600 acres of scenic vineyards. For a complete listing, visit http://www.michigan.org/wineries/.
