The Homestead Resort on August 30

The Homestead Resort just outside of Glen Arbor is fast becoming a favorite location for area destination weddings. Anna and David certainly choose a beautiful day to exchange nuptials. The weather was perfect and the views spectacular.

Anna and David were married at Mountain Flowers, a wonderful ceremony site located high on a bluff above the Lake Michigan shoreline. Our couple had guests that traveled form all over the country and the world to attend the wedding. I'm sure they were not disappointed. The beauty of the location was second only to the beauty of the bride.

After sending their guests ahead to the reception area for cocktails and hor d' oeuvres, David and Anna took time for some wonderful Bride and Groom shots atop the mountain,before making a grand entrance to the reception area by ski lift.

The Mountain Flowers Lodge is just completing its first year as the reception site for most weddings. With its wonderful windows and views , the Lodge is an ideal setting. It is so convenient to have everything right at the resort. We were even able to sneak away with our couple for some sunset shots that we were glad we didn't miss.

We had a wonderful time, and it was certainly our pleasure to have been included in David and Anna's very special day.
congratulations and best wishes in the future.

Wedding on Bowers Harbor Bay

On Old Mission Peninsula and located on the west side of Bowers Harbor, is Neah-Ta-Wanta Point. This was our unique outdoor location for the wedding of Celeste and Andy on August 16th.

Celeste chose to get married at her aunts home that sits high on a bluff at the very tip of the point. It was truly a beautiful setting for a wedding. The combination of the very old and grand oak trees, along with a blooming rose garden and a view of the water, made it a stunning setting. Celeste and Andy exchanged vows under the arbor as their many guests looked on.

After the ceremony guests enjoyed themselves at the outdoor reception held under a large white tent with the couple's favorite band. The tent was placed in the yard overlooking the water. The weather was of course outstanding, and our beaming couple obviously enjoyed their special evening.

Our best to Celeste and Andy.

Lake Michigan and Frog Pond Village in Interlochen

Kris and Jim got Married!!

Camp Arcadia, set on the shores of Lake Michigan, is a Lutheran Family Retreat. This location has been a special place for our bride Kris and her family and became even more meaningful when Kris and Jim were united there on August 11th.

The beach area was set up for Kris and Jim's beautiful outdoor wedding. The ceremony was made even more special due to the fact that her father and brother, both Lutheran ministers, conducted the ceremony.

Jim and Kris met in Texas, the home state of our groom. Friends and family that traveled from Texas were treated to some of the most beautiful scenery northern Michigan has to offer.

The couple then moved from a gorgeous shoreline setting to a more woodland setting by choosing Frog Pond Village in Interlochen, Michigan for their reception. All of the guests enjoyed both locations on a picture perfect day.

We wish our newlyweds the very best and many years of happiness.

August 9th at the Ag-Ga-Ming Golf Course

Showers in the morning gave way to a beautiful afternoon in Northern Michigan. This is just what Kimberly had hoped for. After all, it was her wedding day.

We started our day in the morning with the bride at A-Ga-Ming Golf Course, which was the site for Bill and Kimberly's reception. This was the 3rd Saturday in a row that our couple had selected our Unlimited Storybook Package.

We had a gorgeous view of the woods and Torch Lake right outside Kimberly's condo. It made it very relaxed and stress free to be able to stay so close for her bridal portraits. The brides's parents and the ladies were there as well so we took advantage of the scenery for many great shots.

The wedding ceremony was held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Elk Rapids Michigan. After being united in marriage Bill and Kimberly traveled to different outdoor settings for photos. Torch Lake in one of this areas most beautiful lakes.

A-Ga-Ming Golf Course is located high on the bluffs overlooking the lake and offers many breathtaking views. The reception was held in the facilities large white tent just off the club house. Even though the evening became breezy, the guests were very comfortable inside the tent and partied the night away.

Congratulations and Best wishes to Kimberly and Bill
