    Wedding Coordinator

    Carole and her team were incredible throughout our wedding planning process. We were planning a destination wedding on Mackinac Island (we live in Ohio) and Carole was instrumental in our vendor selection process (from flowers to our welcome reception venue) and vendor coordination the day of our wedding. Her attention to detail was appreciated and she even made sure we had water bottles in our carriage for our carriage ride downtown after the ceremony. Because of Carole and her team, my husband and I were able to be guests at our wedding and our day could not have been more perfect! I would highly recommend Carole if you are planning a wedding on Mackinac Island!

    For the Love of Mackinac!'s reply:

    Thank you Sara! We loved working with you both as well. We hope to see you when you visit the Island in the future!

    For the Love of Mackinac AMAZING

    Simply outstanding! We planned an intimate wedding in less than 6 weeks. The destination wedding required hours but every detail perfect!

    Vow renewals

    Carole did vow renewals for my husband and I鈥檚 10 year anniversary and surprise vow renewals for my mom and dad鈥檚 37th wedding anniversary! The reaction that my mom had was priceless and something that none of us will forget. I appreciate how she made everything so easy and seem-less and when we met her it felt we had known her for years. She made our Mackinac stay even more magical!
