Please join us in beautiful northern Michigan for a weekend of marriage, beaches, great food, bikes, cider, and wine
Dave and Elizabeth are ready to tie the knot and want to share this special weekend with you. Please join us at 4pm on Saturday September 14th at Hendryx Park Beach in Suttons Bay, Michigan to share in our wedding ceremony.
We have reserved a cabin for everyone to spend the weekend together. It sleeps 12 so we will be cozy! Plan on family fun, relaxing, bonfires, the Lake Michigan beach, and alas possibly a line for the shower.
On Friday if your schedule permits, join us in a relaxed day as we travel north and arrive to the cabin in the evening. We will bring food to grill if interested or check out a local restaurant before settling in around the fire.
Saturday there is potential for many options including golf, a walk of Suttons Bay, bike rentals, paddleboard rentals, or wine and orchard tours before the ceremony. At 4pm, weather permitting, we will meet the officiant at Hendryx Park Beach just east of the cabin on S. Lee Point Rd.
Please bring cameras and video if desired, we'd love to see our day from your perspective and have photos to remember this special occasion, but we will not be using an official photographer to allow us freedom to let the day take us where our hearts most desire.
From the ceremony Dave and Elizabeth will hop on a rented tandem for their first bike ride as a married couple and meet you all down the road for cider tasting and candid family photography at Tandem Ciders. Please let us know if you would be interested in cycling too and bike rental will be arranged.
From Tandem Ciders those driving can visit 45 North for wine tasting and purchase before dinner in Lake Leelanau. Those riding will drop bikes off at Suttons Bay Bikes and drive to dinner. Entire bike ride will be 12 miles plus stops for orchard photos and cider tasting.
We have reservations for dinner at Bella Fortuna North in Lake Leelanau at 6:30 PM.
Following dinner we hope you will rejoin with us at the cabin where we can all relax and enjoy a fire and s'mores while celebrating the union of our two families.
Sunday morning we invite you to join us for jazz music and brunch in Traverse City on your way home. We will meet at 11 AM at Om Cafe. For those that are interested we will follow up brunch with a rousing game of putt putt golf at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf.
