Today’s real wedding comes to us from Heather & Steve of Van De Steene Photography, based in Royal Oak, Michigan! Here’s what they has to say about the wedding and the happy couple:
After graduating from Western Michigan University, Nadia and Mike met at a mutual friend’s Lake Michigan summer home. They realized that they both had a passion for the warm summer days and always tried making the most out of the short Michigan summer by beaching it on Lake Michigan. So five years later, when it came to planning their wedding, they chose an open-air lakeside locale in the heart of Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore. The Homestead Resort reflects the couples style with its unique village layout nestled in a small town in northern Michigan. “It embraces our love for our state and where we live,” says Nadia. “We met on the shore of Lake Michigan, lived together in two different cities and we have friends and family from all areas of the state.” The couple incorporated their Michigan theme from their table numbers and escort cards to the wedding guest book which Mike hand carved an upper and lower peninsula for guests to sign.
See more after the cut!
