Ben and Stacie | Leelanau Wedding Photography

A little cold weather didn’t stop these two love birds from having their dream outdoor wedding at Sunset Lodge in Omena.  We had the great pleasure of meeting Ben and Stacie during and engagement session where we first learned of their love story.  One that involves tractors and cherries!  In their own words:

“We hope you enjoy the cherries and tractors, both which have a story behind them.  The cherries are from a local company (Cherry Republic) located in Glen Arbor who literally makes anything you can think of out of cherries.  I still remember our first trip to visit Stacie’s parents in this area and Cherry Republic being one of the most memorable parts of the trip….The tractors of course represent the way we met and our current livelihoods.  It was through a mutual friend at John Deere that we met, on a blind date, and here today we stand, man and wife.  It’s been an amazing journey since then, with an amazing journey yet to come.” – Ben and Stacie

It was a splendid day and we were honored to be a part of it all.
