    Our Dream Elopement - even during COVID

    For the Love of Mackinac facilitated a perfect elopement for us on Mackinac Island. We had other wedding plans that were canceled due to COVID travel restrictions, but Carole helped us to plan our whole elopement again in a short period of time. She helped us find lodging, booked our elopement site, found us a photographer, and officiated our wedding. We definitely couldn't have done it without her! I would recommend the services of For the Love of Mackinac to anyone getting married or eloping on Mackinac Island.

    Carole is the BEST!!!

    I cannot put into words how thankful I am for Carole and how highly I would recommend her!!!! We had to cancel our initial wedding plans due to COVID. We decided that in 4 short weeks, we were going to go to Mackinac Island and have a little elopement. Carole made the entire process so smooth and took away any stressors that we had!! She was extremely responsive, organized, and made our vision come into fruition. There was zero stress the day of the wedding. Because of Carole, I was able to really enjoy the day, live in the moment, and take everything in. We also had Carole facilitate our ceremony and the words that she said were so heartfelt and beautiful. She truly made our wedding day perfect and I'm so thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her!!!

    Best decision we made!

    Working with Carole was the best decision we made. Her knowledge, professionalism and care is outstanding! During these unprecedented times we were especially thankful for her expertise to guide us through. The vendors that she recommends are extremely talented and fun to work with. The whole process was calm and easy to navigate. During the rehearsal and wedding everyone was able to relax and enjoy because Carole has every detail taken care of including those you wouldn't think of. We so appreciate her time and care she took to pull of a wedding during the summer of 2020!
