2015 was a great year and we rang in the New Year in style on Mackinac Island! And now, it’s that time of year when people are looking forward with great anticipation to what 2016 will bring. If you got engaged over the Holidays (or will be soon) you’ll be making plans for your wedding day.
When my daughters got engaged, there was so much excitement, build-up and anticipation of their big day as they planned months and months in advance. They researched the perfect venues and worked tirelessly to make sure that their wedding day was perfect. And it goes without saying that having a fabulous reception with all the details being perfect was as important as their ceremony.
While I watched them prepare with my wife, their sisters and bridesmaids, I had a blend of excitement as well as reflecting back in time when they were little girls and thinking of how time flies.
When you’re engaged and planning your wedding, it’s a magical time for you and your family. And there’s no more magical place to get married than on Mackinac Island. It truly is like stepping back in time for the biggest day of your life. You’ve already made your biggest decision in finding the right person you want to spend your life with. Now for the next biggest decision on your mind- “where do I get married and where do I have my dream reception?” It’s your lucky day because the perfect location for your Destination Mackinac Wedding is our very own Pink Pony Restaurant, proudly located inside The Chippewa Hotel.
