Kicking off a month of weddings we love! We are starting with the dreamy winter wedding! 

Hong & Bryan were married February 2018. The ceremony took place on the Rose Garden Veranda under the permanent conservatory. Heaters and sides kept their guests warm, along with blankets and a hot cocoa bar.  

"We both love winter and knew we wanted a winter wedding,” Hong explained. “Both being from Michigan, the majority of our family is close as well. Northern Michigan is beautiful in the winter.” 

Following the ceremony, guests were escorted indoors to the H.O. Rose Room for appetizers, dinner and dancing. A popular twist they added during the reception – a shotski! Guests took shots of fireball from the shotski and really enjoyed. 

“It captured the feel and experience we knew we wanted on our wedding day,” Hong noted. “Everyone executed the vision that I didn’t know I had, I wouldn’t change a thing!
