Kirstyn & Erik’s Winter Wedding
Last December the Leland Lodge had the pleasure of helping Kirstyn and Erik host their beautiful winter wonderland wedding. When we chatted with them about their snowy and spectacular day, this is what they had to say:
LL: Why did you chose the Leland Lodge for your wedding?
K & E: We chose The Leland Lodge because it met all the criteria for a wonderful venue! The location was in close proximity to Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau so we could have some beautiful lake-view photos, we could have our ceremony and reception in the same location (which made organizing so much easier!), the price was very reasonable, the food was fantastic and could be cooked and served right on site, and the coziness and warmth of the lodge added to our up north, winter wedding feel.
LL: What was your favorite part of your wedding at the Leland Lodge?
K & E: Our favorite part was that we could rent out the entire lodge and have most of our family and friends stay right there with us for the whole weekend. It was like a big, cozy cabin! We also loved that The Leland Lodge let us bring our dog and include her in the wedding ceremony.
LL: Is there anything you would do differently?
K & E: We wish we could have slowed down the wedding day. It was all so perfect and went by too fast!
LL: Do you have any recommendations for us?
K & E: The only thing we would suggest is to open up the cottages for the winter! Or at least for winter weddings 🙂
As you’ll see from the photos below by Willow Noavi Photography the day was quintessentially Northern Michigan winter and absolutely breathtaking. Watch for more on this beautiful day in My North Weddings – coming soon.
