Cassie+Mike: Ciccone Vineyard Destination Wedding, Leelanau Peninsula

Ciccone Vineyards wedding photos and setup

I think I met Cassie when she was about six years old. Her sister, Nicole, and I have been friends since elementary school, and I spent a good deal of time over at their house. I also went to school with Mike’s older sister, Jill. Knowing the whole family for so long made it that much more special to be a part of their wedding. And when you add the fact that they got married in the Leelanau Peninsula, one of the most beautiful places in the entire world (plus my Grandma lives in Northport), and then you add the fact that the wedding was at a vineyard overlooking the Grand Traverse Bay, you find me in my happy place.

Here’s their wedding story from Cassie:

“Mike and I have always had a special place in our hearts for Northern Michigan, especially in the summer! We’ve vacationed to Suttons Bay numerous times and it just feels like home to us. We wanted a very small intimate wedding with very close friends and immediate family as this (was) one of the most sacred and special moments of our lives. Mike and I both love to be outdoors and explore new and beautiful places together and that’s exactly what we felt when we visited Ciccone Vineyard and Winery for the first time. Mike and I spent a lot of time working on every small detail of this wedding, and what was so great about it is that we were able to do it together and give each other feedback. We made sure that before we started the planning process last year that we would hold true to make this day exactly what we wanted. It was hard to make certain decisions as there are obviously other people involved on this day but ultimately we wanted to make sure it was everything that we both had always dreamed of in every way!”

And because so many people have asked about vendors in the Traverse City area, check out my list at the bottom of this post for specific vendors from this wedding.

Cassie and Mike didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony, so they did a “first touch” back to back in the vineyard.
