Sara + James were engaged on New Years Day in Lake Geneva, so when it came time to plan their fabulous fall wedding, it was only natural that they'd also say their vows in the same beautiful location, a favorite spot for this gorgeous couple.
From start to finish, this autumn celebration was perfection in the details, coordinated and planned by the talented Cindy Shanholtz and her Effortless Events team. After a beautiful lake-side outdoor ceremony on Lake Geneva Country Club's lush grounds, guests enjoyed a stunning sunset cocktail hour on private boats before returning to shore for a night of touching speeches, great food, and a rocking dance floor courtesy of Indigo, all finished up with hand-rolled cigars on the patio. With hand-painted signage throughout the day, touches of a nautical theme and delicate flower crowns, this beautiful wedding celebrated both the couple and the gorgeous location.
Sara, James and their bridal party were styled to perfection, as well, with Sara and her girls stunning in Vera Wang and Jenny Yoo, respectively, while James and all 13 (!) of his groomsmen wore tailored Jos. A. Banks suits and fabulous purple bowties that the groom hand-picked.
Artisan Associate team members AJ and Katie joined this sweet pair for all the love, laughter and happy tears of their big day. Thanks for having us, you two! XO
