I’m absolutely stoked to share the incredible journey of Julia and Graham as they tied the knot at the picturesque Homestead Resort in Glen Arbor. Picture this: a day immersed in nature’s beauty, seamless flow, and the added bonus of having their loved ones right on-site – talk about a wedding dream come true!

First Look at the Homestead


Let’s talk about the heart-skipping first look. Julia, with the helping hand of her bridesmaid, walked gracefully to where our fantastic second photographer, the one and only Josh from Wandr.North Photography, had positioned Graham on a charming bridge.



As she gently tapped him on the shoulder, their eyes locked, and in that moment, you could practically feel the jitters turn into sheer excitement. The magical bridge added a layer of enchantment that was simply unforgettable.

Another standout moment that had hearts swelling was the tree planting ceremony. Julia and Graham, side by side, filling a pot with dirt on top of the mountain overlooking the lake as the band played their tune. The whole ceremony was pure magic to photograph. Afterwards, we took advantage of the view for some more bridal party and couples photos.
