Back to the Homestead Resort in Glen Arbor

Fall in Northern Michigan is a spectacular time of year. October 4th of this year at the Homestead Resort, was no exception. The Homestead Resort hosts many destination weddings. This beautiful October day, it was the site of Libby and Alan's wedding.

Obviously, planning a wedding is a very big task, just ask any bride and groom. But when it is a destination wedding, things can get a little more complicated. Libby felt a strong tie to the Homestead through her grandfather and a little bit of distance was not going to stop her. She was smart enough to hire wedding planner Terry Siepker, from Events By The Bay, to be her person on site here in Michigan.

Terry worked with Libby and her mother for over a year in planning a beautiful wedding. With Terry in charge of all the details, Libby and Alan had nothing to worry about. They were able to just enjoy their day.

Terry was thankful to also be working with Barb Ellis the wedding coordinator at the Homestead Resort, and her professional staff. Barb made sure that everything on the resorts end ran smoothly. She and Terry oversaw the decorating of an amazing reception site at Mountain Flowers Lodge. It was probably one of the most unique and creative reception areas we have seen in a while. She also made sure that the ski lift and golf carts were available to transport guests to the ceremony site, on top of Mountain Flowers.

Alan And Libby exchanged vows in the presence of their family and friends, with breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, in the background. The setting is truly one of the most stunning in Northern Michigan.

After photos a top of Mountain Flowers, Alan and his beautiful wife joined guests for a cocktail hour in the lobby of the lodge, before going in to dinner. The room looked spectacular. After dinner Alan and Libby cut their wedding cake, a beautiful creation by Aunt B's Cakes and Desserts. Then it was time to start dancing to the fabulous music of the 33rd Street Band.

It was and evening that everyone will remember for a long time.
Best wishes for a wonderful future.
