    Drama Free!

    Carole made planning a wedding completely drama-free! She is proactive on items that might end up becoming a concern and is diligent about getting all the loose ends wrapped up. She made the process seem effortless. Our days was absolutely wonderful and I give all the credit to Carole!

    The best day of our lives

    My husband is a Disc Jockey and works a lot of weddings on Mackinac Island. When we got engaged there was no question Carole was the one to go to. She is understanding and so professional. She not only handled the planning side of things but she also officiated our wedding. From beginning to end our day was absolutely perfect. It wouldn't have been the same without Carole. She was beyond helpful. Any time I had a question or concern she got back to us in a very timely manner. She is precise and professional. Our ceremony and reception where in different places and this made me nervous as far as the setting up goes. Carole did not miss a beat. She made sure we had a perfectly decorated ceremony and then was off on her bike with a basket full of centerpieces to ensure the reception was the same. From the beginning stages of our engagement up until the day after our marriage, she made sure everything was taken care of. She even put our copy of the marriage license in a safe place and mailed the other copy out the next day! Planning a wedding is stressful and time consuming and I don't know how we could have done it without her.

    You're going to love 'For the Love of Mackinac!'

    With only 6 months lead-time, Carole at For the Love of Mackinac! was instrumental in coordinating our daughter's wedding weekend on Mackinac Island. Our daughter lives out of state and just wanted to pick her wedding dress and show up which left every decision to me, the mother-of-the bride. I will be forever grateful that a google search led me to Carole at For the Love of Mackinac! Carole is so well-connected and very well respected by the wedding vendors on the island. Everything was absolutely perfect -- there isn't a thing we would have changed.
