The winters in Northern Michigan can be absolutely spectacular, but sometimes, the weather just doesn't cooperate. So was the case for Erica and Ben's December wedding held at Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa in Thompsonville. The ceremony was held in Northern Lights with a sparkling sailboat suspended overhead from the vaulted ceiling. Following the "I do's", guests made their way to the Hudson Bay reception hall where they enjoyed libations and hors d'oeuvres in the adjoining Lake Harbor pre-function area. Throughout the day, neutral tones of black and winter white allowed for pops of crimson red and sparkling silver to be the stars. While Mother Nature was playing hard ball the staff at Crystal Mountain took over and created the snowy winter day that the couple was hoping for.
