Grand Hotel Weddings

Grand Weddings

For 130 years, Grand Hotel, America’s Summer Place located on Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan, has been an exceptional and memorable wedding destination for many couples. As a family owned historic hotel we pride ourselves on the details and making sure your wedding is something you will never forget. We would be honored to be part of your special day.

Ceremony & Receptions

We are prepared to host celebrations for up to 400 guests with a variety of ceremony and reception locations and dining options available. Whether an event is big or small we have a variety of unique locations available.

Ceremony

Wedding ceremonies are traditionally held in two beautiful outdoor locations. The famous Grand Hotel Front Porch, the longest in the world, is lined with red geraniums, the hotel’s signature flower. From this one-of-a-kind vantage point, you and your guests have a view of the Straits of Mackinac, Mackinac Bridge and the Grand Hotel gardens below. A second location, the Grand Hotel Tea Garden, sits amidst the meticulously manicured flower gardens with panoramic views looking up at the hotel. An immense stone fountain is the Tea Garden’s centerpiece with a beautiful hand crafted wall lining the garden with flowers all around. Please know that both of these locations are weather permitting and indoor locations are also provided when needed.

Cocktail Reception and Luncheon/Dinner Events

Grand Hotel offers a variety of cocktail reception and hors d’oeuvre options for your reception. Further information can be found in the Grand Hotel Wedding Guide. Luncheons and dinners are multiple-course, plated meals with customizable options. Grand Hotel also offers casual or off-site dining options — The Pool Lawn, The Gate House, Woods Restaurant and The Jockey Club at The Grand Stand — all perfect for your rehearsal dinner or smaller wedding party. In addition Grand Hotel’s skilled pastry chef is flexible and creative and can help design a beautiful wedding cake or desserts for your special day. Or you may consider the traditional Grand Pecan Ball with Mackinac Island Fudge Sauce, another tradition of Grand Hotel.

Instagram post 17885219068649117 Happy to say this piece from my painting trip found a special home. Painted on Mackinac Island on an especially hot day just before the 4th, flags where on my mind and in every painting I did on the trip. I chose this spot in the shadow of Grand Hotel, some to beat the heat, but then took on the artistic challenge of highlighting the flags and there shadows!

Instagram post 17922795211518030 Sold 🔴 last summer. I don’t often watercolor but both the ones I did last year sold which was a nice nudge to consider doing some more this winter. 

Something about the way the black and white ink lines and hatched watercolor strokes meld intrigues me. The blend seems to lend an antiquity to the piece befitting Grand Hotel. 

Thank you Mackinac’s Little Gallery!
