Why a Wedding Coordinator?


Carole Erbel of For the Love of Mackinac!


Planning that BIG day? Obviously you want it to be something special. That's why you've chosen Mackinac Island. But now you're worried that it's so far from home and there's so much to do!


You've chosen one of the most romantic places in the world to get married. Our quaint Victorian island with its timeless beauty is a perfect backdrop for your fairy tale wedding. Arrive in a horse-drawn carriage, share your vows in one of the oldest churches in Michigan or next to the beautiful Straits of Mackinac, and have photo memories taken from breathtaking bluffs overlooking the Mackinac Bridge.

On Mackinac Island all of your options are incredible. Getting married away from home is a challenge in itself and although the island has a special charm, it can offer some unique challenges and obstacles. We can help!

Hiring a wedding planner allows you to relax and enjoy the entire journey. An experienced and competent professional is a skilled listener who will be able to turn your dream into reality.

For the Love of Mackinac! will help you select the perfect ceremony and reception site, contract for the finest and most reputable vendors and help you put together fabulous menus. Carole's deep personal knowledge and connections on Mackinac will help you choose the best venues and vendors available. Most importantly, you will have complete personal on-site attention the day of your wedding.

A wedding coordinator allows you to be a guest at your own wedding. It's the best gift you can give yourself! Let us help!
