The bride moved gracefully down a grassy aisle, strewn with white rose petals, to her groom who waited on a bluff above the Lake Michigan shore. If by chance you were near the beach at The Inn at Bay Harbor that day and didn’t instantly recognize the celebrity bride, you might have figured it out by her shoes: gray satin wedges sprinkled in a storm of crystals with tornadoes on each heel …

Yes, the bride was ABC meteorologist Ginger Zee, a Michigan native, who’d wooed her groom, NYC television personality Ben Aaron, to her home state to wed. With a setting like the Inn at Bay Harbor, it hadn’t taken much convincing. The palace-sized white resort-hotel, built in the style of elegant Victorian-era lodges, looks out over the wide, blue waters of a most romantic Great Lake—a view that is all-important to Ginger.

“I’m from Grand Rapids and we always camped on Lake Michigan,” Ginger told us in a pre-wedding interview. “I feel a connection with Lake Michigan, especially Up North where you can see that crystal blue water. Whenever I come home to Michigan I go straight to the lake. It’s like going to an island, but you’re home.”

Outfitted with such amenities as golf courses and a spa, surrounded by the posh Bay Harbor shops and rising near the Petoskey commercial district, the inn is the very definition of destination wedding, which is exactly what Ginger and Ben were looking for. Everybody was able to stay in the same place and “that’s one thing

I love about the inn,” Ginger said. “You have your own space, but you are all together so you can get some personal connections going.
 Getting my mom and his mom together … those sorts of things that 
don’t happen as often as they should in our world. Our families are spread out all over the country.”
