1.  Mackinac Island

One of the most sought-after destinations for a Michigan wedding destination or a perfect honeymoon is Mackinac Island.  (My honeymoon was here too!)  If is a great opportunity to feel like you stepped back in time to a beautiful old-fashioned wedding.  There are plenty of hotels and bed and breakfast spots that will cater to your wedding needs and make for an unforgettable day for both you and your guests.  Don’t forget the carriage ride.  It makes for unbelievable memories.

2. The Homestead Resort (Glen Arbor)

The Homestead is a great example of what you can get when you venture away from home for your wedding. Rather than walking down the aisle in a local church, you can find yourself walking down an aisle carved out of a mountain and exchanging vows at the top of a mountain with sweeping views of the water spreading out in front of your guests. You can also choose to dip your toes into the sand and exchange vows right on the beach if you prefer to keep your guests down on the ground.
