Romantic Mackinac Island Destination Wedding | Destination Wedding Planning

February 16, 2018

We can't wait for you to see this romantic Mackinac Island destination wedding. Take a peek to see what it looks like when a professional wedding planner plans the wedding of  her dreams.


Sarah grew up on the lake in Indiana, so when her and Jake got engaged they knew they wanted something on the lake. They  found Mackinac Island, Michigan and fell in love. It was the most perfect setting for a wedding. The only way to the island is by ferry, as they do not allow cars on the island.  Upon arrival to the island,  your luggage is transported to your hotel via bike, and delivered it directly to your room. What a fun way to start a destination wedding weekend!


 Sarah made personalized welcome bags for guests coordinating in gold and white. They were filled to the brim with personal gifts like; homemade cookies and snacks, Mackinac Island Salt Water Taffy, Champagne, water, maps and welcome information.


The day of the Wedding was rainy. Not everything went exactly as planned, but it ended up working out in the bride and groom's favor - they rented a horse and carriage to take them around for pictures, which ended up being fun and romantic! Wedding planners sure know how to turn a wedding day snafu into a positive!


From the photographer -

 "The bride (Sarah) and I met 10 years ago on our first day of college at Purdue. We had just moved all of our stuff into our dorms and were attending our first official college event where we stood next to each other. The rest was history! Within hours we had told each other our life stories, cried, laughed, ate pizza, watched 6 episodes of Grey's Anatomy and became best friends. Sarah has been by my side through every mile stone since. We turned 21 together and survived to tell the tale, graduated Purdue and became 'adults', I visited her in NYC when she lived there and we ate ourselves through the city, she stood by my side on my wedding day, held my hand while I had my son, helped us move boxes from apartment to town home to house, and we vacationed with each others families more times than I can count. In the words of Meredith and Christina (Grey's Anatomy reference), she is my person." -Casey
