Mackinac Island Grand Hotel Elopement
Madeline & Dan, 2020
Madeline & Dan eloped on Mackinac Island. Like many, their plans changed drastically when the pandemic hit. Instead of cancelling their plans, they went back to the drawing board and realized the chaos was a blessing in disguise. The two grew up together with both of their families coming to the island to vacation. Getting married on the island was actually something they dreamt about, but didn’t seem like a reality when first planning their big Catholic wedding. When they realized their big wedding could not take place, the dream of Mackinac Island became a reality. I was so happy to have been invited to their intimate gathering. It was a literal fairytale. My family came along to enjoy a long weekend and our son, Hampton couldn’t stop referring to Madeline as a princess. She truly looked like one accompanied by a horse drawn carriage at the Hotel. This will be just one of a two part wedding and I cannot wait to celebrate with them fall 2021 to celebrate their large Catholic ceremony and reception with all their friends and family. Madeline & Dan truly had the most stunning wedding on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel.
