Ginger Zee, meteorologist on ABC's Good Morning America, married NBC correspondent Ben Aaron this weekend in what is being called a "charming" wedding ceremony in Michigan--near the bride's hometown. The two exchanged beachside nuptials and recited traditional vows in front of an intimate gathering of 55 people.
Zee worked with her best friend and renown wedding planner Francesco Bilotto to plan her big day.
"I am so proud to be from Michigan and I have countless memories of growing up along this gorgeous lake. I wanted to have one of the most important moments of my life here and make another one of those memories," Zee said.
Zee shared a photo of herself with her mom as she prepared to dress for her wedding.
Wedding guests were offered pashminas so they didn't get too chilly as they watched Ginger Zee and Ben Aaron say "I do." They then headed inside at The Inn at Bay Harbor where they enjoyed dinner family style--served at one long dining table. The menu featured some local and some rather eclectic offerings including artisan cheese plates and a Michigan salad with local cherries. The main course choices included veggie quinoa, parmesan-crusted chicken, grilled salmon, and filet mignon.
Ginger Zee was gorgeous in a Pnina Tornai dress. She and her new husband danced at their reception to music provided by The Outer Vibe--her brother's band.
"Think Hamptons on the lake," Francesca Bilotto said of the party décor. "Lots of navy blue and off-white, very formal coastal is the look."
Cake was served outside on the deck at the inn. It was displayed atop a wine barrel and was described as "light and fluffy."
A short time prior to the nuptials Ginger Zee had the following to say about her upcoming wedding day.
"Bringing our crazy families from all over the States to enjoy some peace and quiet in northern Michigan will be the greatest day of our lives," she said.
It sounds like Ginger Zee and Ben Aaron's dreams of a perfect wedding day have now come true.
