From the beautiful Bride… Growing up, my family had fond memories of trips to Lake Geneva; we knew it would be the perfect wedding destination to share with our closest family and friends. After choosing our venue, we learned that Brian’s parents honeymooned at the very same resort. It was truly meant to be!

When Brian and I started to plan our wedding, we wanted to keep the weekend intimate and personal. We set out to include as much of what and who we loved as possible. I chose to walk down the aisle on our wedding day wearing my mother’s veil (the same veil she wore 32 years earlier), along with my maternal grandmother and great-grandmother’s jewelry. We were also fortunate to have our only living grandparent in attendance at the wedding, where we celebrated her 83rd birthday and served her famous cookies along with the family recipe.

Not only were we able to incorporate these relatives, but also our favorite furry family member – our dog, Penny. Penny was instrumental in Brian’s proposal and although she did not attend the wedding, she made an appearance in the form of Penny-shaped place cards.

To make this event even more special (or as Brian says ‘one helluva party’), we enlisted some spectacular vendors. Our unique venue, the Grand Geneva Mountain Top Ski Chalet, was transformed with the most beautiful spring flowers created by Frontier Flowers of Fontana. While flowers bloomed outside, they also hung throughout the venue to create the intimate party we’d dreamed of. The additional decor we selected helped us pull together an elegant and classic environment for our celebration and our band, Soda, kept the dance floor packed all night long!

We feel blessed that we can say we had our perfect wedding. We couldn’t have asked for anything more – thanks mom and dad!

From LoudbyteStephanie + Alex realized their love for each other in high school at the age of 14. After spending nearly their entire lives together, they became husband and wife last September. Stephanie had a first look with her mom and dad at Alex’s parent’s lake house in Wisconsin. What was most touching was her father’s reaction to seeing his daughter, in her wedding gown for the first time. Get ready to shed some tears over their heart-warming story.

From the beautiful Bride… I knew I had a huge task at hand when my fiance (Brett Goode, long snapper for the Green Bay Packers), and I decided to get married on his by-week, less than a month away from our engagement.

We chose the idyllic destination of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, about 2.5 hours away from Green Bay. I knew I would need quite a bit of help to pull this off, but I was up for the challenge. I enlisted the help of florist, and wedding genius, Renee Cerny of Frontier Flowers of Fontana. Using a mix of blush, sage green, metallics, soft neutrals, and modern and rustic elements, she tied in our Arkansas roots. There were also unique touches like chic antlers mixed in with hanging amaranths and lush flowers. It was also very important for me to incorporate a lot of rose gold elements to pay homage to my engagement ring.

We kept the wedding small and intimate, with only close friends and family being in attendance. Our ceremony was perched lake side in a gorgeous Sperry tent at Abbey Spring Yacht Club in Fontana. It was then transformed into the reception space, while the guests enjoyed a sunset cruise on a gorgeous, classic, steam yacht, from the Lake Geneva Cruise Line. We wanted our guests to have a fun getaway, and share in our love for one another and our friends and family.

From the bride…Rory and I decided that the most important goal of our wedding was to create an amazing celebration for our family and friends to dance the night away! We LOVE music, and our relationship started by going to music festivals and to see our favorite bands together. We wanted to create the feeling you get seeing your favorite band at our wedding reception and for everyone to feel like part of the festivities. The day of the wedding was chilly for the end of July, but in the end it was perfect for dancing with the doors open, providing natural air conditioning for our dance party.

We got engaged at Yerkes Observatory, and we thought the building was too beautiful to not return to take pictures the day of the wedding. Ideally, we would have gotten married there, but they do not allow receptions to take place on the grounds. We wanted to make sure the ceremony and reception took place in one location, and when we found Horticultural Hall, I knew it was perfect. The courtyard felt like a lush secret garden and created a lovely intimate ceremony space. The additional contributions from family and friends, like my mom & sister making the place card/plant tags and my reception sash, my friend Kaitlin making “Smores Pops” for everyone, and Rory and I making little details for the guest tables, using my mom’s antique bottle collection for budvases on tables, my friends at The Flower Firm making my gorgeous floral designs, it all made the whole day feel like a giant hug!

From Carly McCray Photography… Melanie + Chris’ warm, Wisconsin fall wedding in Lake Geneva was one part nautical-goodness mixed with about three parts Wisconsin fall colors, abundant rustic elegance and a ski chalet with the most beautiful wood beams!

Living near Washington D.C., Melanie and Chris chose Melanie’s hometown of Lake Geneva as their perfect Wisconsin fall day wedding backdrop. They exchanged their ‘I dos’ in Melanie’s childhood church…where she wore her mother’s long, gorgeous veil…and celebrated that night where she spent many chilly winters skiing at the Grand Geneva Mountain Top Ski Chalet! They filled the day with their own handmade touches including save the dates with a custom Wisconsin print, handmade wooden table numbers, rustic wood signs, pennants, take-home mason jar favors, chalkboard signs, and more.

Tables overflowed with fall pears nestled in silver vessels and full fall arrangements, and were surrounded with rustic wood chairs and golden afternoon sunset light bouncing off the beams + red brick floor! Lovers of good food and beer, Melanie + Chris incorporated this into their dinner menu of three favorite dishes paired with three favorite beers! Their puppies even came along for portraits, two girls appropriately named Barley and Hops.
