Marion and Ben in Traverse City, MI
This couple cruises their way into marriage with a seaside celebration
Michigan natives Marion and Ben grew up near lakes, share a love of sailing, and even got engaged on the beach. So it was no surprise that Lake Michigan played a key role in their wedding. The couple exchanged vows aboard the Manitou, a replica of a cargo schooner from the 1800s, then headed back to shore for a beach-themed reception at the Park Place Hotel.
