Rustic & Elegant Destination Wedding by Clary Photo
Posted by Kate. Filed under Photography, Real Weddings

This wedding is super special to me.  The bride, Katie, and I were college roommates for three years.  Not only is she the sweetest person alive, but she has amazing taste and is just totally graceful and beautiful.   I also went to high school with the groom (who is hilarious)!  Katie and Jason have a playful, enduring kind of love… they celebrated their ten year anniversary of dating just before taking their vows!  When I first caught their gorgeous photos by Clary Photo up on Facebook, I fell in love with every part of their day.  I’m so happy to share their album as this week’s Real Wedding of the WeekKatie and Jason wanted to have their wedding in a place where everyone could hang out for a weekend, relax, and have fun!  Lake Geneva is just ninety minutes away from their previous residence in Chicago, and it offered the feel of a destination wedding, without the long distance planning or travel for their guests.  The Grand Geneva Resort ended up being the perfect property for the event.  (Above, the bridal party gathers in lovely Plum Pretty Sugar robes)! Katie was the picture of bridal elegance.  Both she and her maids dressed in sophisticated gowns by Enzoani. The couple envisioned a day that was both rustic and elegant, deciding on an earthy palette of olive, silver, champagne, and ivory with navy accents.  The reception was held in an out-of-the-way space on the resort property that gave life to their vision.  They adorned the ski chalet (the space) with twinkle-lit draping, mercury vases, rustic centerpieces, and tons of candlelight to get the look.  

So, so beautiful!  There’s tons more to see, enjoy the full photo spread {here}.

Many congratulations to my old friends Katie & Jason!
