This summer wedding at the Homestead Resort is complete with all of the sweet and tender moments, fun and exciting moments with family and friends, and it is finished off with the gorgeous scenery that Northern Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore has to offer.  From the beautiful blue waters of Lake Michigan and the Manitou Passage Way, to the sand dunes and dunes fields of Sleeping Bear, to the beautiful wooded pine forests, Northern Michigan is an ideal location for a destination wedding.

Alyssa and Ryan brought their family and friends up to the Homestead Resort, in the heart of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, to celebrate their wedding and enjoy a few days in the area.  Friday started with celebrations around the resort, and Saturday began their wedding day.  They started their day at the gorgeous Lilly Jade relaxing with a few drinks and laughing with the bridal party.  All the while, the guys were hanging out in their condo on the other side of the salon on their porch overlook the river and pines.  Everyone was having a great morning getting ready.

As Ryan saw his daughter walk down the aisle just before Alyssa, you could see the anticipation and love fill his eye.  As Alyssa walked down the aisle, you saw her infections smile and laughter as she walked forward to marry her soul mate.  In front of family and friends, they pledge to move forward in life as a married couple with their daughter Zola standing between their legs.

The rest of the night was filled with fun and emotional toasts, dancing, and a lot of mingling.  It was the perfect day for these to to celebrate their marriage.  Congratulations Ryan and Alyssa, I wish you the best!  Much love and appreciation, Rayan.
