From the Bride:
Drew and I had a wonderful wedding weekend in Lake Geneva! We went up with our families early to the resort to enjoy shopping and spa treatments (golf for the boys)! Our ceremony was held out on the golf course in front of a lake. Our cocktail hour and reception was held inside the Grand Geneva Resort. We had wonderful weather that day (you never know with Wisconsin summers)! Our dinner was super tasty and we followed the night away with a photobooth and a night of dancing!

Our ballroom decorations were simply breathtaking! We were blown away by the lighting, candles and decor! We worked with Tailored Engagements to make my vision of a simple modern/elegant wedding come alive! Everything was planned in great detail and Drew and I enjoyed every minute of planning together. We met in college in our freshmen year and have been growing our relationship ever since. We are best friends and enjoy traveling and watching movies! Following our wonderful wedding day we went on our honeymoon cruising through the Mediterranean sea. We stopped in Spain, France and Italy. It was such an amazing cruise! We look forward to going on more together!

  1. I LOVE Lake Geneva–it’s such a perfect setting for a wedding! Those glass flower bulbs are amazing, and I’m pretty sure wedding photos of the bride & groom in Adirondack chairs are becoming one of my favorites. Great wedding!

  2. Oh fun!! I just had a wedding there but it rained the entire day so the ceremony was inside:( Glad to see pictures of a ceremony outside overlooking the pretty trees and lake. Congratulations to the couple!
