Dappled light, falling leaves, lush green tones on the verge of autumnal shades — end-of-summer turns the mundane into something magical. Just a 90-minute hop, skip and away from their home in Chicago, Lindsay and Brandon welcomed friends and family for a destination wedding in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Surrounded by picturesque waterfront views, The Abbey Resort was the unique setting for Lindsay and Brandon’s modern and naturalistic wedding. In the midst of lush green foliage, their intimate ceremony took place in a gazebo framed by a simple trellis of climbing roses. Scattered fall leaves decorated the aisle and drew all eyes to the bride’s stunningly long train.
The enchanting vibe carried over to the bridesmaids who wore an ombre of coastal blues, and the couple’s attire — with the groom looking dapper in a classic blue suit and the bride adding a subtle touch of drama to her elegant wedding gown with a long, flowy veil.
Lindsay and Brandon’s lakeside destination wedding felt fresh and celebratory, taking advantage of the natural surroundings as the perfect blank canvas without being shy to incorporate pops of color in the floral arrangements. It’s an updated alternative to the boho, earth-toned weddings that I have seen over and over again the past few seasons.
Years ago, I shot Lindsay’s sister’s glam wedding and I’m so honored to be a part of this one. To my lovely couple, Lindsay and Brandon, thank you for letting me share your beautiful day.
