Dearest family and friends

We are so thrilled to be getting married and hosting this exciting weekend up at Crystal Mountain. Crystal Mountain is located at 12500 Crystal Mountain Dr, Thompsonville, MI 49683. If you are driving from SE Michigan, we are about 3.5-4 hours away by car. You can also fly into Cherry Capital Airport, which is in Traverse City and about 50 minutes from the resort. Reservations for ground transportation can be made by clicking here. There is complimentary parking at Crystal Mountain and, unless you go off property, you won't need to use your car upon arrival. Crystal Mountain offers complimentary transportation once on property, and we are hosting transportation for each event.

The resort is a ton of fun - there's great restaurants, golf, indoor and outdoor pools, a world class spa, and so much more. We hope you'll be able to join us in celebration of the love we have for each other (and for all of you), including but not limited to the following events:
