Did you know? The Petoskey Stone is actually fossilized coral that lived 350 million years ago!

We have seen the Petoskey Stone incorporated into several wedding days. You can find the Petoskey Stones anytime of the year. It’s best to look after a storm. While we are lucky in northern Michigan to be surrounded by beautiful beaches along the shores of Lake Michigan, you can also find Petoskey stones (polished and unpolished) at local stores such as Grandpa Shorter’s and Northgoods

A few ways to use them:

  • As a paperweight to hold down programs for an outdoor ceremony
  • Photography prop of your favorite polished stone for a one-of-a-kind ring shot
  • Necklace to accent your gowns 
  • As decor – fill vases with water, florals and Petoskey stones 
  • Favors! Guests love to take home a little piece of Petoskey with them
