Michigan summers are magical. Our state has some real hidden gems and Leland fish town is definitely one of them. I never would have discovered it’s historic wooden shake covered shanties without Brooke. She, the creative force behind Stellaluna Events, is another one of those Michigan gems.
We were in the area for a super sweet girly workshop on floral design and hand lettering (check out the Bloom Workshop site here). And after driving three and a half hours up to Northern Michigan, we were not disappointed. The workshop was fabulous… SO MANY PRETTY FLOWERS… and when we finished, getting sandwiches from the Village Cheese Shanty was well worth seven collective hours in the car.
Being a photographer is easy in Leland. There is so much texture and visual interest. Taking pictures at Bloom- surrounded by intentionally lovely things, was obviously a breeze as well. I hope you enjoy living vicariously through these images.
