Mackinac Island lilac photography
Northern Michigan and specifically Mackinac Island is known for their lilacs. Mackinac Island lilac festival photography by Paul Retherford.
The Mackinac Island lilac festival is in full swing.
This year the lilac festival falls right on peak lilac season.
Lilacs blooming in peak during the lilac festival is rare.
Mackinac Island smells wonderful right now.
The frequent rains have made the bloom last with strong aromas.
In addition, the lilacs seem to be holding on longer than normal.
Make your trip today if you want to catch the lilac show.
The lilacs will be gone really soon.
If you would like a photo session on Mackinac Island please contact me, Paul Retherford Photography.

Mackinac Island Mission Point Resort Wedding lawn
May is not typically the warmest time on Mackinac Island. Don’t tell Adriana and Tadd. Furthermore, check out their Mission Point Resort outdoor lawn Wedding Summit Room Photography.
It is a blue sky day on Mackinac Island and the Mission Point Resort wedding on the lawn is abuzz with loungers and tourists biking the trail.
As a result so many people are out that I have to time a lot of my photography to avoid bikes and people in the backgrounds.
It feels a bit like an August day on Mackinac Island.
In my opinion when it reaches 75 degrees on Mackinac Island in May, you are blessed.
