From the Bride’s vintage veil to the puppy place cards, this lakeside affair is bursting with heartfelt details. Romantic and sophisticated, Kristina Lorraine Photography captured every detail and it’s waiting for you here!
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!
