Macare & Dustin, Part III

The longest day of the year was June 20th, 2009. It was also the day Macare Kelly and Dustin Lumbrezer tied the knot in Northern Michigan. With a traditional, and intimate, wedding ceremony in Traverse City the couple and their 200 wedding guests headed to Crooked Creek Ranch located in Cedar, Michigan, for a memorable celebration.

The weather was picture perfect! Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres were enjoyed alfresco encouraging guests to explore the expansive grounds of Crooked Creek. Dinner was served on the lawn which overlooked Lake Leelanau and the owner's horses running through the front pasture. Moving speeches were given by Macare's father (one of the best Father of the Bride toasts I've ever heard!), the maid of honor, best man and Macare's brother.

Immediately following dinner, Macare and Dustin invited all their guests to join them for dessert and dancing in the barn- a massive centennial barn which is one of the many highlights at Crooked Creek Ranch. The dancing continued into the night (which was still rather bright)! For a snack the newlyweds offered a Hot Dog Bar with toppings galore then escaped via a vintage blue Rolls Royce into the night.

I asked Macare to share what her favorite memory from her wedding day was- this is so sweet!
I remember our first dance and crying because I was so incredibly happy that I was married to Dustin. I love dancing at weddings, so I remember getting crazy with all of our friends and family on the dance floor. I loved looking at all our friends and family around us and the expressions on their faces because they were having so much fun. It was so special to think that they were all there for us.
