McIntosh Orchards

I had such a great time spending the day yesterday with one of my upcoming brides, Keri. Her May wedding will kick off my season this year and what a kick off it is going to be. Keri and her fiance Mike are getting married in an apple orchard in South Haven MI. The ceremony is going to be under some old apple trees in blossom, last May I posted some pics of the orchard in bloom (here). The cocktail hour & reception are going to be held on the wrap around porch and in the orchard's winery building. While visiting the orchard, McIntosh Orchard & Winery, I snapped some pictures of the before, can't wait to see the after results!!

The winery will be opening up again for the season on April 1st, if you are into wine tasting you must check them out. They make everything on site and from all Michigan fruits, from apples to cherries, to peaches and blackberries, very yummy!!! Oh yes, and don't forgot the apple dumplings and apple cider donuts while you are there!
