“Vibrant” is definitely the best word I can use to describe Jenn and Marty’s mid-November wedding. The weather was crisp, the sky was blue, and the sun shined brightly over the beautiful scenery that surrounded The Inns at Geneva National in Lake Geneva, WI. (Which, by the way, is a stunning location for a destination wedding!) This wedding party was a fun group! They were easy-going, witty, and an absolute joy!
By the time I arrived to The Inns on wedding morning, the ladies had just finished their hair and makeup at the Clear Waters Salon & Spa. With the help of her bridesmaids, Jenn stepped into her gorgeous dress and prepared to see Marty for their first look.
Jenn’s dress was so perfect her; it fit her fun yet classy style! Her bouquet and florals, provided by Pesche’s Greenhouse were just as I described: VIBRANT with the bright pink and orange gerber daisies.
Ryan and his crew at Ideal Impressions Photography made Jenn and Marty’s first appear as though it was from a dream. Out on the lawn of the Geneva National Golf Course, Marty stood waiting, staring out at the lake. As Jenn approached, she softly grabbed his hand and Marty stood there in amazement for a moment as he took in the sight of his beautiful bride. Such a sweet, private moment!
The wedding party joined Marty and Jenn for a photo shoot around Yerkes Observatory. The photographs are great; they show the great sense of humor and energy of Jenn and Marty’s closest friends!
The late afternoon ceremony took place in the Legends Room at Geneva National. Harpist, Maureen Petersen, set the tone for the event by serenading the guests with her beautiful tones. Jenn was radiant as she was escorted by her father and step-father down the aisle. The bride and groom said their “I dos” in a simple and sweet ceremony surrounded by family and friends.
After the ceremony, guests took a short walk over to the Lake Geneva Room for the cocktail hour. On the way over, the bride and groom peeked into the Grand Ballroom. From the lovely floral arrangements by Pesche’s Greenhouse and the lanterns Jenn painstakingly collected, to the elegant cake created by Bodi’s Bake Shop, all the details put together in their many months of planning had finally come together!
Soon it was time to really get the party started. DJ Greg with Medleys in Motion made that happen with style as he announced the wedding party into the room with the song The Adventure by Airwaves. The energy and excitement were palpable as Marty and Jenn were welcomed into the ballroom as husband and wife!
Jenn and Marty cut the cake and then their guests were treated to a delicious meal while their friends and families toasted the new Mr. and Mrs.
Following the bride and groom’s first dance and parent dances, Medleys in Motion kept the party going with great songs that filled the dance floor. Guests were even treated to a sneak peek of the wedding images that were captured by Ideal Impressions in a Same Day Edit slide show. The room filled with love for Jenn and Marty!
Five Grain Events was so honored to have been a part of such a fun and joyous occasion! We wish Jenn and Marty many blessings as they continue their life’s journey together!
