Leslie & Luke: An Intimate Northern Michigan Destination Wedding Video | Homestead Resort | Cafe Manitou

Leslie and Luke were married on the shores of Lake Michigan in an intimate Northern Michigan destination wedding at the Homestead Resort and everything about their day was perfect ❤️ It was full of sun, and sand, and gorgeous Michigan clouds sweeping over the water, and so many happy tears. It was truly magical!

One of the things that Leslie mentioned to me was how important the letters that they had written to each other were and that she really wanted them featured in their wedding film. Without a doubt, their letters were one of my favorite things from their intimate Northern Michigan destination wedding but there were so many emotion-filled moments from their day. I don’t think anyone got through their wedding day with dry eyes. I know I didn’t! And I cried again several times while going back through every moment from their wedding day to craft their wedding films.

Everything from their beautiful letters, to their wedding vows, to the toasts given at their gorgeous intimate wedding reception at Cafe Manitou, spoke to the special bond that Leslie and Luke have. Not only can their friends and family members see it. Their photographers and I could absolutely see it! Even after spending just a few hours with them, it’s clear that they have a special bond. I’m so honored that I was able to be present on their special day and document all of these priceless memories for the two of them to cherish forever!

Congratulations again, Leslie & Luke!
