On a sunny day in August, Laura & David were married in Lake Geneva.
The day began as beautiful as they come. It was sunny, the skies were clear and family & friends were gathering in Lake Geneva for Laura & David’s wedding. Laura & David live in New York together (check out their ultra NY engagement session here). They both have Wisconsin ties and it felt like the right place to tie the knot. Laura grew up outside of Milwaukee, and David has spent several summers on Lake Beulah at his family’s lake home. When Laura & David began planning their wedding, they actually had their heart set on a backyard wedding along Lake Beulah. Though that didn’t work out due to logistics, they were able to celebrate along the water in Lake Geneva.
As Laura & David realized the Lake Beulah plan wasn’t going to work, they kept one thing in mind. [See the] “big picture so you don’t get caught up in the details, but invest in the things that are important to you,” Laura said. This day was about a seven-year relationship (two of those years being long distance) celebrating a lovely union. When we asked Laura & David their advice for future brides & grooms they said, “Leave your stress at the door once the festivities begin. You set the tone for the day!”
You’ll see, the details that went into Laura & David’s day absolutely completed the day. Amanda from Tailored Engagements made Laura’s visions come to life and executed it all seamlessly on the wedding day. Laura’s juxtaposition of bright floral, vintage china and rustic woods — oh! you just have to see it all! Also, check out the vendor list below for more details! Through all the beautiful, beautiful details, the ceremony surprised them the most. “We were surprised about the excitement around the ceremony and how fun it actually was!” Their favorite part of day, though, was dancing! “We loved the dance party! After the formalities were done, we got to totally relax and let loose. We jumped rope, danced around a bottle, did the limbo, were lifted on chairs, started a conga line, pants were ripped… ” The day was, overall, truly exquisite on many levels!
Many thanks to Lisa Mathewson who photographed alongside TJ on this unique day!
Congratulations Laura & David!
