Stacey and Dan knew each other while growing up in Northville, but lost touch. Years later, Dan heard that Stacey was working at Food & Wine magazine. Intrigued, he sent her a letter to reconnect. They were married 18 months later.

The two foodies hosted an elegant wedding at the Walloon Lake Country Club beside a glittering lake with a menu modeled after those of their favorite steak houses.

Stacey and Dan in Petoskey, MI

An elegant lakeside wedding with classic and family-inspired elements

Stacey and Dan knew each other while growing up in Northville, but lost touch. Years later, Dan heard that Stacey was working at Food & Wine magazine. Intrigued, he sent her a letter to reconnect. They were married 18 months later.

The two foodies hosted an elegant wedding at the Walloon Lake Country Club beside a glittering lake with a menu modeled after those of their favorite steak houses.

The chocolate wedding cake by Bella e Dolce was layered with mocha buttercream and chocolate ganache, and the fondant icing was decorated with the same pattern as the one on Stacey’s dress. The cake topper, a family heirloom, had also been used by Dan’s parents and grandparents.
