Held at luxurious Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan, the schedule ensures there’s plenty of connecting time for the two of you. The Laffoons’ Celebrate Your Marriage Conference is designed to be an incredible two-day retreat just for you and your spouse.

Your hosts, Jay & Laura Laffoon

Using true stories, interviews, research, and years of experience, the Laffoons equip couples with the tools they need to nurture one another. Combining humor, music, and lots of honesty, the Jay & Laura’s “Celebrate Your Marriage” is designed for married couples of all ages. Meet Jay & Laura.

Special Guest: Taylor Mason

Taylor Mason’s quick wit, flawless delivery and polished material make him a hit with audiences of all ages.  He is a ventriloquist, musician and stand-up comedian.

Nonetheless, he carved out a career in comedy and entertainment that has taken him around the world and into living rooms across the United States for the past 25 years. He’s appeared on a myriad of television programs, YouTube videos, and other online viral videos, he has won awards, he’s played Carnegie Hall, he’s written a book for Penguin Publishing, and once he did a show for children at his local public library!

There is no way to describe what he does because combining ventriloquism, music and comedy is unique to Taylor Mason and quite literally needs to be seen to be believed.
