Bride and Groom at Pierce Stocking Drive Overlook

Emily and Michael had a gorgeous Spring Glen Arbor Wedding in Northern Michigan. Family and friends gathered together at the Homestead Resort, in the heart of Sleeping Bear Dunes, to celebrate their marriage.  The day was beautiful and warm…and a wee bit windy on the dunes.

Emily and Michael started the day out in a very relaxed way with their family and friends.  Once they were ready, the bride, groom and bridal party made their way to the top of Sleeping Bear Dunes for a first look and some bridal portraits.

We wandered through the dunes marveling at the beautiful blue water of Lake Michigan, and the amazing fog that hung on the horizon.  Following our time in the dunes, we headed back to the Homestead for their wedding at the top of Bay Mountain and their reception at Mountain Flowers Lodge.

Their wedding was beautiful, and full of laughter and love and joy as Emily’s brother married them.  The rest of the evening was spent enjoying dinner, drinks and some wonderful time with their family and friends.

Congratulations Michael and Emily! The two of you were so wonderful to spend a day with. We wish you the best as you begin your lives together and continue to indulge in your love of travel!  Much appreciation and love….Rayan.
