Marisa & Jonah in Birmingham, MI
It was a blind date that brought together Marisa and Jonah. Neither one was excited about being set up, but after meeting they realized they had a lot in common. Both were raised as vegetarians and were the eldest of four children.
The Bride Marisa Russell, 29, publishing account manager
The Groom Jonah Stutz, 35, real estate investor
The Date September 1
Their relationship quickly flourished, and one Sunday morning they woke up early to jog around the lake at Kensington Metro Park. After a six-mile run, Jonah coaxed Marisa to the water's edge and surprised her with a proposal. An even bigger surprise...Marisa's parents showed up at the park to congratulate them. Afterward, the entire family enjoyed a celebratory brunch.
