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

Starting with the professional event planners and ending with literally every single employee, the service provided by Stafford's Perry was fantastic! The venues are gorgeous - especially the Rose Garden Veranda, the food top notch, the hotel pristine and tasteful. Our high expectations were exceeded!Sent on 08/22/2019

The professional and detailed event planning staff gave me such a peace of mind. I knew Debbie, Nikki, Angie and Natalie had everything covered. We used the vendors on the list they provided to us. The wedding ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. The front desk staff, namely Rick, took all the room swapping with such a great attitude. He was so proud to show us the kids names behind the desk in blocks. The wait staff both at the restaurant and the ceremony were so professional and were excited for us. The manager at the Noggin, which we took over after the rehearsal and ceremony, was accommodating. Even tho we drove him nuts! The guests raved over the food (filet mignon with salmon) and desserts. The view was another topic. Gorgeous. Not to mention the sunset. Thanks for helping in making the kids' day magical.Sent on 08/07/2019
