As a seasoned wedding photographer, I’ve captured countless beautiful celebrations across Wisconsin.  Recently, I had the privilege of shooting a stunning wedding at Geneva National Resort, and I had a fantastic experience. If you’re searching for an elegant, lakeside setting for your special day, this venue might just be your dream come true.

Why Choose Geneva National for Your Wedding?

Geneva National Resort provides a breathtaking backdrop for your wedding day. Here are some reasons why a Geneva National wedding deserves a spot on your shortlist:

  • Picturesque Scenery:  The resort nestles along the shores of Lake Como, offering panoramic views of rolling fairways and shimmering water. You’ll have endless opportunities for unforgettable wedding photos.
  • Versatile Spaces:  Geneva National boasts a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate your vision. Exchange vows under a charming outdoor ceremony location, then dance the night away in the spacious Clubhouse or a chic, tented pavilion.
  • All-in-one Convenience: With onsite lodging, exceptional catering, and world-class golf courses, Geneva National offers everything you need for a seamless wedding weekend.

Cons To Having A Geneva National Wedding

Having a wedding at a resort that is open to the public can bring a couple issues. It’s not always possible to shoot without having golfers or cars in the background. At this particular wedding, we had a golfer drive behind the ceremony in a golf cart. Not the end of the world, but something to take into account.

A Look Inside a Geneva National Wedding

Let me take you on a visual journey through the recent Geneva National wedding I photographed. The couple, Sarah and Alex, opted for a classic, romantic theme.

The ceremony took place outdoors, overlooking the lake. Soft floral arrangements adorned the aisle, and a simple wooden arch formed the backdrop for their vows. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and canapes on the lush lawn, while we took advantage of the golden hour light for portraits.

The reception was held in a beautifully decorated pavilion. Twinkling fairy lights, elegant table settings, and lush centerpieces created a magical ambiance. The customized menu by Geneva National’s talented chefs delighted guests, and the party continued late into the night.
