Aurora Cellars Wedding | Amanda + Zach | By Anna


“Walking down the aisle was the most emotional moment for both of us. We chose not to do a first look, so our first time seeing each other was the moment where I was walking down the aisle. It’s hard to put this moment into words but it felt surreal, joyous, and triumphant (we made it!). Seeing everyone we love surround us and stand by our side was overwhelming. We locked eyes the whole ceremony and tried our best to hold back tears of joy!”

Amanda + Zach tied the knot in a place they have both come to love over the years. “Zach and I knew we wanted to get married ‘up north’ before we even got engaged. It had always been a special place to Zach (his family has a cabin in Northport in which he spent summers growing up at) and it had become a special place to us together over the years. We spent countless summer weekends and holidays up north in which we made meaningful memories- days on the lake, nights at the Leelanau Sans Casino, skiing, tubing, snowmobiling, and more- that grew our relationship.”

So when they found Aurora Cellars, they knew they had to get married there. “When choosing a venue, we were blown away with Winslow the willow! Aurora Cellars was so strikingly beautiful, that we didn’t need to do lot to ‘dress it up’ and could enjoy the nature of the property.”

And enjoy they did. From the exchanging of vows to walking in the vines and dancing the night away, Amanda + Zach’s big day was absolutely perfect. Congratulations, Amanda + Zach!
