Marissa & Jonathan, Part III


We've seen the beautiful wedding and Blessingway now it's time to see the celebration! With the help of the fabulous team of Special Events Rental, Flowers by Marla Courtney Wood and Epicure Catering we transformed Jonathan and Marissa's home in Northport, Michigan into a slice of Maui and the Four Seasons.

The party was inspired by the regal purple hue of amethyst, rich teals and blues reflecting the colors of the ocean and their view from their balcony, the tropical floral from Hawaii and the gorgeous mahogany wood throughout their Northern Michigan home. Through hand dyed silk ribbons on their save the dates, 100% recyclable and reusable invitations, gorgeous crinkle taffeta linens, floral fresh from Hawaii and a menu inspired by Momma's (Maui's famed restaurant) we brought the volcanic isles to Lake Michigan!

Perhaps one of the most generous acts to date for A Day in May, in lieu of gifts Jonathan and Marissa set up registries with three of their favorite charitable organizations: ErthNxt, Circle of Blue and E-Three Labs (which is Jonathan and Marissa's organization dedicated to bringing solar powered computer labs to the developing world).

Thank you Jonathan, Marissa and family! It was delightful working with you all and creating a party your guests will soon not forget!
