Carole is absolutely excellent at everything she does. She is extremely responsive and very knowledgeable about all things Mackinac Island, The Grand Hotel, and wedding planning and officiation. She goes above and beyond to work with your schedule and is truly your advocate throughout the wedding planning process and wedding day. She is experienced and thoughtful and came prepared on our wedding day with spare tissues, pens, paper, and anything else you could need in tow. My husband and I highly recommend her officiate service to any engaged couple. Thank you so much, Carole.
