NICOLE AND MARK'S WEDDING

September, 2009 in Petoskey

"We wanted our wedding to be a weekend celebration that would unite our dearest family and friends, together in one place. We chose the Perry Hotel in Petoskey for our Northern Michigan destination wedding because of its stunning views of Little Traverse Bay and the charm of the hotel, downtown and the surrounding areas.

Aside from location, the food was definitely our utmost priority. Great food and wine is one of our passions and a large part of our lives and history together; we live in New York and were engaged in Napa. It was so important to us to create an incredible culinary experience for our guests where they could indulge in all of their favorite foods – and lots of it! Having learned that Stafford’s Corporate Chef Gerald Gramzay’s had worked in popular New York mainstays like Tavern on the Green, we became very confident that The Perry would help us bring big city sophistication to our menu.

So, with the perfect location and the promise of the perfect menu, we planned our dream wedding with the focus of creating unique and very special experiences for our 100 guests.

We wanted to influence each detail in a way that represented us …"

"We live in New York as do many of our family and friends. We choose the Perry Hotel for our Northern Michigan destination wedding because of its stunning views of Little Traverse Bay, the impeccable charm of the hotel and downtown area and the consummate level of attention, professionalism and genuine dedication the Perry staff showed us and our guests from the beginning through the very end of our wedding planning process. It is impossible to put into words the countless ways the Perry staff helped make our wedding the day of our dreams and one our guests will never forget. Sales Manager Angie Whitener worked tirelessly with us on every detail with the most enthusiastic can-do attitude, no matter how tall the order. Corporate Chef Gerald Gramzay having worked in popular NYC mainstays like Tavern on the Green prepared a wedding weekend menu beyond compare - showcasing the flavors of Northern MI with big city sophistication. We couldn't have selected a more perfect venue, not in Michigan, not anywhere!"

"We had the wedding of our dreams and we could not have done it without Misty!! She worked tirelessly with us from the beginning of our planning process through the very end of our wedding weekend - she provided incredible vendor recommendations, direction and inspiration for unique wedding details and coordinated EVERYTHING in the weeks leading up to the wedding so my groom, my family and I could just relax and enjoy the celebration. She planned and orchestrated our rehearsal dinner, welcome cocktail party, in room favors and gifts, guest transportation, the ceremony decor, the reception decor, the band, the invitations, the floral details .. we truly couldn't have done it without her. (Well we could have, but not as well and having someone to play point that wedding weekend so we weren't bogged down with last minute details was truly invaluable)"

"My dad got us a (beautiful, blue) 54 Rolls for the day (I refer to it as my 'something blue). My dad and I rode in it to the ceremony and my husband and I rode in it from the ceremony to the cocktail hour/reception. Keith, the owner is incredibly professional and kind. This turned out to be one of my favorite memories/things from the day ... if you're thinking of an old car, do it! And call Keith. He'll take good care of you."
