Allison & Brad’s Lake Geneva Wedding – Part 1

When Allison reached out to me in 2015, I was so thrilled to hear from her! I helped her sister Emily, plan her 2011 wedding, and just fell in love with their wonderful family. Allison and Brad wanted a semi-destination wedding outside Chicago, and settled on the lovely resort town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The Lake Geneva Country Club was the perfect venue, and luckily they had some connections to members who were able to sponsor them in order to host their wedding there! Allison envisioned a classic, romantic and relaxed wedding day with some country club prep, and it all came together beautifully! Lisa Mathewson Photography perfectly captured their day full of love, family, and friendship.

Cassidy & Thad’s Blackstone Hotel Wedding – Part 2

Cassidy envisioned floral arrangements with an organic feel… not too “neat” with lots of greenery and lush white and blush flowers… yet fitting with the classic ballroom. A tall order, but Vale of Enna always delivers! Since it was June, the coral charm peonies were in full bloom! Tons of candles were a must… along with blush pink linens, champagne, napkins, gold chiavri chairs, and gold beaded rim chargers.
