Cherry Basket Farm Wedding | Ashley + Andy


Joy, gratitude, commitment, magical, happy, fun.

Ashley and Andy. Married in the stunning town of Northport. There couldn’t be a more perfect place to tie the knot because “Andy is from Northport, his parents still live there and much of his family lives in Michigan. We love Leelanau county and wanted to share the place with Ashley’s family, who being from New Zealand were unfamiliar with Michigan.” This couple both enjoys the outdoors and being in nature and their goal was to express this through their venue. Andy knew about Cherry Basket Farm/Epicure Catering because during his summers in high school and college he did some restaurant work. They had found their perfect spot. A place that was a match for their guests and for them.
Thinking back on how special and unique of an experience and feeling it was to be getting married and reminding themselves to really savor the memories and emotions of that day. They had nothing but “immense happiness and joy to be committing to a life of adventures together.”
“We both felt an immense amount of gratitude for having met each other, and for being able to have an amazing celebration with our family and friends.”

They had so many beautiful moments that stuck out to them during the day, “the first look with Ashley in her dress, looking into Ashley”s eyes during the vows and ring exchange, seeing everyone enjoying themselves during the post-ceremony celebrations, and the sparkler exit.” Ashley loved that they had so many DIY touches to their wedding and there were many conversations with their friends and family that stood out during the wedding day “as everyone pitched in to get flowers arranged, lanterns hung, welcome signs placed, and places set. It was amazing to see it all come together. Watching the car unload with the groomsmen all dressed up, and seeing Andy for the first time. Walking into the barn with my dad. Listening to our readers during the readings. So many moments!”

Congratulations of your marriage, you two! May God bless you both.
