We had our wedding at Mackinaw Valley Vineyard last weekend. It was absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect setting for a wedding and we ended up with absolutely perfect weather. Our guests loved the relaxed feel of being able to walk around and enjoy the scenery. Our guests also enjoyed the wine and great music. Diane was great with helping us figure out timelines and logistics to make the day go smoothly. I would highly recommend Mackinaw Valley Vineyard for a wedding. It is the perfect venue for a wedding.

The vineyard is a gorgeous location for a wedding. We booked it approximately 10 months in advance. Very detailed contract. The vineyard had several suggestions of other people to work with (food, officiant, etc). They kept in constant communication with us and always responded promptly to emails and phone calls. Diane was helpful every step of the way. They were also flexible and basically let us decorate the vineyard the way that we wanted. They set up the chairs and took them down for the ceremony, which was nice to not worry about. The vineyard remains open during weddings, but honestly you don't even notice it. The ceremony area is far enough away from the bar/store area that it still feels private. We had our reception somewhere else and didn't feel any pressure to have the reception at the vineyard. The service we received was excellent.
