    Late October on Mackinac!

    We wanted to get married on the Island during the height of the colors, and the lowest level of tourists. We chose the week before Halloween, and ended up with a beautiful experience. Carole was amazing! She had warned that the weather could be iffy, but really came through when our outdoor venue needed to be changed-- 2 hrs before the ceremony!-- to an indoor one. This includes changing taxis as well for all the guests!
    We live 9 hrs away, but she hooked us up with the best vendors and venues after accurately assessing our needs. Even our guests were amazed at the attention to detail; and commented she was a step ahead and extremely easy to get along with the whole way.

    If you're thinking about getting married on Mackinac Island, Carole is a MUST hire! Every single detail of our wedding went smoothly and she was always so quick in responding to any questions! Carole allowed us to relax and enjoy every part of the day, rather than worrying about logistics or timeline. We really cannot thank her enough!

    Since the “destination” for our daughter’s wedding also happens to be our home on Mackinac Island, we thought we might have an edge in knowing what we needed; nevertheless, we were delightfully surprised at Carole’s deep knowledge of and relationships with island vendors as well as the process itself of pulling off such an important event. Her many years of experience in handling the complex logistics of planning a Mackinac wedding simply confirmed what we already knew about Carole: her relaxed attitude (but everyone got where they needed to be on time and on budget), her gentle humor and wry wisdom (no matter what curves the weather or our families threw), and the absolute love with which she handled every detail of the event (right down to wiping tears of joy from her own eyes!) gave us the chance to enjoy the event ourselves. Carole has an uncanny ability to connect with nearly anyone she meets; we give our absolute highest recommendation to anyone looking to experience the specialness of an island wedding.
