Real Wedding: Mary Jane & Jim, Cadillac, MI

It may seem strange to want to get married at a ski resort in the middle of summer, but that's exactly what Mary Jane [MJ] and Jim did on July 25, 2009.  The bride and groom wanted their friends and family to experience Northern Michigan and MJ's former home-away-from-home, Caberfae Peaks, which was owned and operated by her family.  The wedding and reception took inspiration from the vibrant colors of summer and the sport of skiing of course.  Throw in a dash of prep, a chair lift, and some old ski equipment, and the event came together seamlessly.  The best part about it though- no long lift lines (sorry I just couldn't resist)!  Head on over to the Real Weddings page to see the photo gallery from MJ and Jim's wedding, and be sure to see below, for all the talented vendors that took part in their big day.
