Having our wedding a Mission Point was one of the best decisions we've ever made. My husband and I knew we wanted a "destination" wedding and Mackinac Island was the perfect option for us. From beginning to end our experience was enjoyable, and every person we came in contact with during the planning process was great. Our wedding coordinator Kristen was an absolute dream to work with. She was more than willing to answer all of my questions (there were A LOT), and was very timely with her responses. She helped to coordinate our rehearsal as well which was great since we did not hire a wedding coordinator outside of Mission Point. The night before our wedding she even helped us set up, staying well beyond the end of her day, and the next day helped us pack everything up. Any future bride will be extremely lucky to work with her! Every small detail was attended to and our reception venue, the Cypress Room was breathtaking. Having the option to have our cocktail hour on the deck was very convenient and our guests loved it. We got so many compliments about the friendliness of the staff at the reception as well as how amazing the food was. The banquet menu offers a large variety of options to fit the needs of most any guest, they are great about accommodating allergies as well! The bartenders at the reception were amazing, and by the end of the night were out on the dance floor with us! Wedding planning can be very stressful, but the entire staff (hotel, servers, bartenders, coordinators, etc.) at Mission Point made it so pleasant. We are so grateful for Mission Point helping us to create an experience we (or our guests) will NEVER forget! Best. Day. Ever. We plan on going back every year for our anniversary.Sent on 09/12/2019

Originally, my husband and I planned to have our wedding at the Promenade Deck. However, Mackinac was unseasonably cold/rainy so we had to move inside. Our original back up location wasn't quite large enough so we were moved into the Cypress Room. It was a beautiful space. Lindsay even went the extra mile to make sure we got the beautiful cafe lights. It was a blessing in disguise because we ended up loving the Cypress Room more than the Deck. Everyone at Mission Point is incredibly friendly. They worked well with our wedding planner, Carole. We started our day at the salon and the staff was incredibly talented. When arriving at the reception, everything was set up perfectly. The food was amazing. All of our guests loved the stations (especially the potato bar and dessert bar.) Beautiful location on the water. We loved that it is a short walk/carriage ride from Ste. Anne Church. We had 50 guests.Sent on 06/26/2019
