It was a spectacular day for Chenxing and Zach at their Leland, MI Wedding in Northern Michigan.  Leland, Michigan is a quaint town on the shore of Lake Michigan just north of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. It is an old Fishing Town with Lake Michigan to the West and Lake Leelanau to the east. It is filled with wonderful shops, restaurants, golf courses and beaches. And as a result, it is an incredible location for a Northern Michigan wedding in the summer.

Zach and Chenxing are from the Ann Arbor, Michigan area and brought their family and friends to Northern Michigan to celebrate their marriage. It was a beautiful day filled with a traditional American and Chinese traditions as their celebrated the wedding in Leland, Michigan.

Zach and Chenxing were married at the beautiful Leland Country Club, over looking Lake Leelanau. As they exchanged their vows, their ring bearer decided to top the flower girl with his adorable hat, Chenxing teared up, Zach smiled with love, and everyone cheered.

Their reception followed at the Leland lodge and was filled with emotional toasts, some shots of Moutai, excellent dancing, a few cigars, and lots of laughter.  The bridal party made a brief escape on the Leland Lodge Golf Carts to head down to Lake Michigan to enjoy the sunset, and then Chenxing and Zach snuck out for a late night photo under the Milky Way at the Leland Country Club before head off for the evening.

Chenxing and Zach, congratulations on your beautiful marriage. It was an amazing day of two families becoming one. Much love and appreciation, Rayan.
