Mary & Michael
August 10, 2018
Lake Geneva, WI
Mary and Michael planned a beautiful waterfront wedding at Lake Lawn Resort in Lake Geneva—a place that Michael and his family frequented while he was growing up. The day was beautiful and breezy and began with photos of Mary with her bridesmaids and Michael and with his groomsmen. Mary wore a mermaid gown with a ruffled bottom and carried a bouquet of white blooms, thistles and greenery, which perfectly matched her groom’s boutonnière. Billowy slate blue bridesmaid dresses complemented the lakeside location, while the groomsmen’s navy suits added a crisp touch of tradition. The couple wrote their own light-hearted vows and exchanged them in a beautiful outdoor ceremony before heading off for photos with family.
Guests mingled during cocktail hour before entering a beautiful indoor reception with white candle centerpieces, slate blue napkins and rustic cross-back chairs. The wedding party took their place at the head table, which wrapped along one side of the room, and enjoyed a champagne toast and delicious plated dinner. Mary and Michael worked with a local bakery to create a beautiful dessert display with a modern three-tier chocolate and vanilla cake, chocolate covered pretzels, macarons, cake pops and puzzle-piece cookies. The celebration continued with Double Platinum DJ Service, who went above and beyond to create a memorable evening!

“During our vows, Michael went first and his vows started out as the ‘traditional’ vows…but in typical Michael fashion, he turned it around and they became the funny/sarcastic vows I was hoping for. When it was my turn, I couldn’t help but laugh because I didn’t think that Michael was expecting sarcastic/funny—let alone football vows—from me. We got so many compliments on our vows…they were everything that our relationship is built on, which made them perfect.” -Mary
