Marissa and Brandon's wedding combined family fun with classic elegance. "We wanted our wedding to feel like a giant family reunion for all of our loved ones," says Marissa. All of the weekend's activities, from the rehearsal dinner to the reception were within walking distance for guests, to promote kicking back together. 

The couple chose to celebrate at the The Equinox in Manchester. Marissa says it was an easy choice, given "the level of service and luxury The Equinox provides, and of course its general splendor and gorgeous setting." The venue was the perfect backdrop for sophisticated details like a live jazz band and stunning floral displays. The couple's main focus, however: their family and friends, which is evident in their joyful photos. See the couple's full gallery, shot by Duback Photography, below.
