After dating for seven years and experiencing so many adventures together, the couple decided to tie the knot in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Afterward, they hosted the ultimate Plymouth backyard wedding.
The Inn at St. John’s provided the perfect backdrop for their preparations, where they got ready for their big day before sharing an awestruck first look in the garden courtyard.
Their wedding ceremony took place in the backyard of Marissa’s sister, surrounded by lush greenery and twinkling bistro lights that created a magical ambiance. Monica and Marissa did an amazing job to transform the space and it should serve as inspiration for anyone wanting to have their own Plymouth backyard wedding. The couple’s nieces and nephews added to the joyous atmosphere during the cocktail hour, climbing trees and substituting cookies as the main course.
As the sun began to set, speeches and first dances took place under the glowing lights. The early September weather in Michigan was perfect for the occasion, creating a romantic and unforgettable evening.
Monica and Marissa’s love story is filled with memorable moments, from brewing beer together to traveling to Uganda and Dubai. They have volunteered at church for eight years and watched countless beach sunsets in California. It was clear that their love for each other has only grown stronger with each passing year, and their wedding day was a true reflection of that love.
We wish Monica and Marissa a lifetime of happiness and adventure as they continue to create unforgettable memories together!
