Glen Arbor DIY Beach Wedding at the Homestead

This perfect intimate wedding of Felicia and Ian took place on the gorgeous beaches of Northern Michigan at the Homestead. Felicia took on the challenge of a DIY wedding, where she beautifully created her own floral bouquet and wedding decor. But the real beauty to see was the love and laughter that Ian and Felicia shared with one another on this very special day. It was clear to see this love that these two shared by the way Ian wold smile at Felicia, a smile that was reserved only for when he look at her. And of course by the tears of joy Felicia shed as she stood across from her best friend and love of her life at the alter. The day couldn’t have been any better as Northern Michigan gave us blue skies, gorgeous fields of wild flowers, golden light and an incredible sunset on the beach to finish.
