Even though my husband and I had worked on Mackinac Island for several years and knew a lot of the ins and outs of wedding venues and service providers here, it was still very helpful to have Marty from Grand Hotel to guide us through the many options. We had a beautiful luncheon reception at Fort Mackinac, catered by Grand Hotel. The value-for-money was exceptional (where else can you get a three course meal for under $30 a plate with a VIEW to die for?!!). Our flowers were exquisite and they catered to my random requests (an English Garden boquet, with eucalyptus thrown in to pay homage to my husband's homeland) without battling an eye. It was so helpful to have the florist on site, and our flowers were delivered to the room few hours before the ceremony. After our luncheon, Grand Hotel proved to be the perfect setting to relax and let loose with our friends and family.
A cookie-cutter wedding was the LAST thing we wanted, and our guests still rave about the unique location and format of our wedding celebration. We would do it again in a heartbeat - it truly was the most perfect day of our lives!

This was our 25th Anniversary Destination Vow Renewal to our most favorite place on Earth, the Grand Hotel with close family and friends. Marty Haines, was first and foremost a Godsend and most wonderful individual that we can call a friend. Being out of state, she helped to coordinate our vision to reality down to the tiniest of detail. I am not sure how she does it !!
Our venue in the Grand Hotel included the Cottage Restaurant and wet bar across the hallway, where a reception was held first. The food was amazing as always and the piano and photo booth added to the ambiance and fun of our celebration.
Our theme was Vintage Romance and was carried out so well by Margaret's Garden in the most spectacular bouquets, bouts and centerpieces. They really outdid themselves and am so grateful for them seeing our vision and beyond expectations.
If you are looking for a wonderful atmosphere, we just happened to have all 4 Seasons the day of our renewal, and the "Grandest" wedding of all....this is the place. You will never forget your moment here at the Grand Hotel.

We worked with the Grand Hotel Wedding Coordinator 6 months ahead of date to plan the perfect celebration. We had a luncheon for our 40 guests, vow ceremony on the porch overlooking the Great Lakes and the Mackinac Bridge, and the whole experience was just magical.
The hotel handled the flowers, refreshments, gift bags and treated us and our guests like royalty. Anything we needed was addressed immediately and efficiently.
The Grand Hotel, staff and management made every minute just amazing and I would recommend this venue to everyone.
