Mackinac Island Wedding at the Grand Hotel

A Mackinac Island Wedding at the Grand Hotel.

Every year I have the honor of shooting a Mackinac Island wedding for Andrejka Photography in Northern Michigan. And a Mackinac Island wedding at the Grand Hotel is even MORE magical! Any time I explain the island to friends they look at me at disbelief when I tell them that there are NO motorized vehicles. You get around by walking, bicycles, or HORSES! Yes, horses! So one of the awesome milestones couples can do for their special day is take a horse ride around the island during their cocktail hour and this is exactly what  Jamie and David did!

I love all the pretty details against the colorful decor of each room. Each room is unique! And I love the groomsmen and groom’s unique gifts. Sports lovers in the house!

Their ceremony was performed on the west patio with Mackinac Island Bridge in the background. I love how guests lounging in their rocking chairs can watch as the beautiful bride walks to her soon-to-be husband.

And the Grand Hotel as a backdrop is breathtaking!! 

If you’re going to get married on Mackinac Island why not take a carriage ride and incorporate horses into your portraits and then add bicycles. One of my favorite stops is at the beginning of downtown and capturing the feel at the heart of the island.

Their reception was held at the Gate House located a little down the hill from the Grand Hotel. This gave us even more options for portraits!

Thank you so much for having me, Jamie and David!!
