When ABC News meteorologist Ginger Zee exchanged vows with Ben Aaron on Saturday, she cemented an alliance with the competition, NBC. According to New York Daily News on Sunday, Aaron is a popular personality on NBC New York, and Zee says he is her "partner for life." The wedding took place near the bride’s hometown in northern Michigan, and only 55 people were in attendance. She wanted her special day to take place here where she had so many other special memories from her life.

Zee wore a beautiful lace Pnina Tornai gown in crisp white. She had her hair swept up in a loose, wavy updo with a long, simple veil tucked into it. The groom wore an elegant black suit, white shirt and black tie. The overall impression of the happy couple was one of a classic bride and groom, perfectly suited to pose on the top of a wedding cake! The bride is 33 years old, and the groom is 32.

There are photos of the wedding on People.com. The ceremony took place on the beach, by the shores of Lake Michigan. The reception was held at The Inn at Bay Harbor. There is something very real and charming about the obviously happy couple in these photos by Michael Murphy IV. The intimate gathering of family and friends stands in sharp contrast to the over-the-top events planned by couples in the public eye. (Kim Kardashian could learn a few things about beauty, class and wedding etiquette from Ginger Zee.)

Anyone present on the beach Saturday who had watched the recent Animal Planet show, “Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys,” probably had trouble concentrating through the ceremony. The cheesy horror flick featured the Michigan lakes being overrun with the blood-sucking, eel-like creatures. There is an article featured below describing the movie. The frightening thing is that Michigan has truly been battling lampreys in the lake systems!
