A perfect pandemic wedding
Angie and her team at the Perry Hotel made the process from full wedding pre-pandemic dreams to a perfect microwedding during Covid as smooth as possible. Her team helped us understand everything that was going on up there from restrictions to fully helping us plan a Plan B wedding in a few short weeks. It was a magical garden wedding on the veranda with just immediate family, and we watched the most beautiful sunset that only Northern Michigan could deliver in Adirondack chairs. It was the most Northern Michigan wedding experience we could have asked for, and we are so glad that it was our experience.Sent on 09/04/2020

The Perfect Northern Michigan Wedding Venue
The Perry Hotel has to be one of the classiest establishments in Northern Michigan and we are so fortunate we picked the Perry for our wedding! We were happy to hear they offered a value season wedding option so that we could save money, but still be at an amazing venue.
The moment we met Angie during our consultation meeting, we just knew we had to get married at the Perry! Angie is so perfect at her job and made a crazy planner and worry-wort like myself feel at ease. Throughout the year of planning, we enjoyed getting to know the entire Sales Department staff and always felt at ease with how kind, courteous and lovely they were on phone or email.
Our guests commented over and over again with how amazing the venue was and we couldn't agree more!! They are still talking about how amazing the Perry Hotel is. We were all so impressed with the hotel and staff - they are all top notch and wonderful!
Thank you so much for being the most amazing and wonderful venue for our special day! We highly recommend if you are getting married in Northern Michigan to schedule a meeting with Stafford's Perry Hotel!Sent on 01/01/2020

Wedding at the Perry Hotel - 8/31/19
The Stafford's Perry hotel and their entire staff were a dream come true for our wedding reception venue. They not only prepared the most beautiful, professional and welcoming reception, but they also helped us every step of the way to plan our "destination wedding" in Petoskey, as we are from the Detroit area. Angie was our biggest help along the way and was so patient as I asked her a million questions, and always was looking for her advice and expertise. She was so kind and helpful through my entire wedding process. She made us feel like family. The reception itself was absolutely stunning. We rented the outdoor rose garden veranda on Labor Day weekend. Everything flowed together so beautifully and my family and guests can't stop talking about how amazing the service was. And the food was phenomenal as well, which never happens at weddings! Every plate tasted as if it was the only one made. We can't say enough about how much we loved our wedding. The Perry even sent us home with beautiful memorabilia of our specific wedding and the venue. Thank you so much for making our day an absolute dream come true!Sent on 09/23/2019
