Celebrate your nuptials with a one-of-a-kind destination wedding without leaving Michigan when you host your special day at Mackinac Island State Park. Established in 1895 the island park is Michigan's first state park and the second national park in the United States. The park's historic landmarks, breathtaking vistas, spectacular rock formations, quiet forests, and nature trails make it a perfect setting for your wedding celebration. From the time your guests arrive on a boat provided by one of the private ferry companies to the time they send you off, they will be captivated by the island park's beauty. If you've been dreaming of an intimate yet whimsical outdoor ceremony, say your "I do"s at either Marquette Park or Peace Garden. Or pledge your love in a stately indoor ceremony inside the reconstructed Fort Holmes, which is located on the highest point of the island. After the ceremony, you and your guests can make your way to the island's other fort, Fort Mackinac for a grand reception. Indulge in a delectable catered meal provided by the Fort Mackinac Tea Room and dance the night away in celebration. Your special day is guaranteed to be breathtaking from start to finish.
