Real Wedding: Marissa & Jonathan, Northport, MI

The September 5, 2009, wedding of Marissa and Jonathan was a little bit different in that, well, it wasn't a wedding at all!  The couple had chosen to elope to Maui in March and wanted to throw an awesome party in September for all of their family and friends.  The event took place at the couple's private residence in Northport, a mere 4,300 miles from the Four Seasons where they were married.  Taking inspiration from "The Valley Isle" the reception of Marissa and Jonathan brought a slice of the tropics to their Northern Michigan home.  Head on over to the Real Weddings page to see the photo gallery from Marissa and Jonathan's wedding, and be sure to see below, for all the talented vendors that took part in their big day.
