Start your special day together aboard the ugly anne
Captain Chris received his license to marry people in 2018 and has performed weddings under the Mackinac Bridge, in front of Grand Hotel, near Round Island Lighthouse, and floating in front of Arch Rock. We welcome all denominations and members of the LGBTQ(IA+) community. We feel honored when people ask us to be part of such a meaningful and memorable day in their lives. For ceremonies on Ugly Anne, we allow 30 people to be on board. Captain Chris has vows that he uses, or you are welcome to say your vows, and we are happy to serve beverages if the couple would like. If you have questions, feel free to ask.
Ugly Anne has a complete audio system available to cater to all of your video and music needs. Alcoholic and N/A beverages available onboard at an additional cost. Catering aboard Ugly Anne is possible through local restaurants on Mackinac Island and Mackinaw City. Captain Chris can officiate ceremonies upon request (no additional fee).
