    This couldn't be more perfect! We are getting married beach side in Michigan this June. The Harbor Country is filled with fresh fruit farm stands, including cherries, blueberries, etc. I had been wondering how we could incorporate that wonderful resource into our wedding.

    I'll be using this idea for sure.
