Springtime Weddings on Mackinac Island
The first time Courtney and Kevin, of Novi, Michigan exchanged “I Love You” was on Mackinac Island, making this the #1 choice for their destination wedding. The cool temperatures on Mackinac on the Spring day of May 10th didn’t disappoint them one bit as they enjoyed plenty of outdoor photos following their ceremony and during the carriage ride through the Island. The beautiful Mission Point Resort was their choice for ceremony location and for their reception for 40. Courtney’s bouquet was provided by Margaret’s Garden/Grand Hotel. Hair styling and make up was done for the bridal party and Courtney at the Lakeside Spa & Salon at Mission Point Resort.
Photography was creatively provided by Island Photo. Several key details were requested which resulted in a number of wonderfully crafted photographs of the family and beautiful couple. Island Photo rode along on bicycle during the carriage ride to capture fabulous images with the Mighty Mackinac Bridge and other scenic and romantic settings
The Colonial Room at Mission Point Resort, redecorated for 2019 and looking beautiful was the location for the reception. The wedding cake was provided by Bella E Dolce, who always makes each and every cake personal and perfect. Courtney’s two cats could be a part of the wedding day as they has replicas of both Sophie and Cloe on the wedding cake itself! No wedding is complete without favors of fudge on the table, with a variety of flavors from Joann’s Fudge - an Island classic!
“I adored everything about the wedding,” said Courtney. “ People kept telling me it would be too cold, but the chill of the day just kept our adrenaline going and made the day even more exciting! We loved our photographer Kate and we we always be grateful for amazing photos and our picture-perfect Mackinac Island! “
