Mackinac Island Wedding at the Grand Hotel 2011

Weddings on Mackinac Island. Dreams do come true.

Jenny & Adam’s special day at the Grand Hotel. The weather was fabulous and the celebration was their dream come true. Adam waiting for his lovely bride with her flowers in hand.

So many different photograph possibilities with all the windows.

A small family Wedding made for a very relaxed celebration.

We had a couple of hours to take photographs and that is a rearaty with most weddings. Keep that in mind when your planning your wedding day. Schedule as much time as you possibility can with your photographer. Give them time to be creative. They will thank you for it.

The chairs on the Grand porch, the view, and all the smiles.

Horse and carriages are so much of the Island that you just have to photograph the bride and groom with this part of the Island.

The flowers at the Grand Hotel in the spring are fabulous and make for great backdrops…

So many different venues.

Congratulations Jenny & Adam, wish you all the best in your Life travels together.

Don’t forget the rings…

The old-world elegance of Grand Hotel envelops you the moment you step onto Mackinac Island.  A horse-drawn carriage taxi or stroll the short distance to the hotel. Your passage will be peaceful, cars aren’t allowed on Mackinac Island, one of the many traditions that still reign from the opening days of Grand Hotel back in 1887. This Victorian-style hotel possesses the world’s longest veranda–a 600-foot porch that stretches the full length of the property, one of Michigan’s oldest golf courses and a wide variety of leisure attractions. The property has been an icon of summer resorts since it opened, but the Grand achieved cinematic fame when the 1980 film Somewhere in Time, starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, was shot on location. But don’t let its turn-of-the-century facade cast the impression that the property itself is antiquated. The slower, more leisurely pace of the past merges with all the amenities of the present to make your stay memorable.

Six of the suites are named for first ladies Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush, who were all consulted in the designs. A variety of special package deals like the Murder Mystery Weekend and Somewhere In Time offer a variety of ways to enjoy the distinctive property. Come and enjoy the beauty that Mackinac Island has to offer.
