The Homestead Wedding | Sarah + Stephen


Sarah and Stephen both share a love of the beautiful northern Michigan landscape. The Homestead provided the perfect location for family and friends to enjoy it along side them. “…We knew we wanted to have a destination wedding and showcase the beauty of Northern Michigan since the majority of our guests were from out of state. After researching options, we came across The Homestead. We absolutely loved the idea of all our guests being able to stay in one place and the location within Sleeping Bear Dunes is hard to top! Once we visited the venue, we knew it would be the perfect location for our wedding!”

Their wedding day did not disappoint. According to Sarah, the most memorable moments were, “The first look and vows (any anxiety I had about the day disappeared as soon as I saw Stephen. Although there were others there, it felt like it was just the two of us), walking down the aisle with my Dad (both of us were emotional and somehow pulled it together before the final turn) and sunset photos (it was a moment between just the two of us to really take in how special the day had been).” Stephen followed with, “The whole day just felt really relaxed and peaceful. I really enjoyed spending my morning with family and friends who we don’t see enough. The first look really was special, and I also really enjoyed the pictures by the stream that kind of took the edge and anxiety of the moment off for me.”

According to the bride and groom, their day was “magical, special, and perfect” and “comfortable, beautiful, and dreamy.” We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations, Sarah and Stephen. Your day was one to remember.
