Aimee and Benjamin's Mediterranean-inspired wedding food was a rustic, delicious element of the event. The focus of the appetizers was charcuterie, as per Benjamin's request.  Pancettta and coppa were served, along with venison lonza. Grilled artichokes, local goat cheese stuffed pappedew peppers, marinated gigante beans, olives, and handmade crackers from 9 Bean Rows all served as lovely accompaniments. Succulent braised lamb shank with local fried garlic, served on Michigan white beans from Carlson-Arbogast Farm, graced the entree menu. The lamb also came from a fantastic local farm, S & S Lamb. Our climate in Northern Michigan really lends itself to Mediterranean food, so this menu was a perfect choice for a Leelanau County wedding.

Be sure to check back on Monday for another fantastic Northern Michigan wedding.
