Our July Beautiful Bride of the Month, Annie!

by | Jul 1, 2020 | Real weddings

Summer is here! And, so we’re blooming with excitement for warm summer days, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, fresh garden blooms, and outdoor weddings! Therefore, we’re delighted to share with you the gorgeous wedding of this month’s Real Bride, Annie, and her handsome husband Eddie.

Annie and Eddie met during science class during high school, so you could say they had some chemistry! Their wedding day was nothing short of perfect from sunrise to sunset, as they got married at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Chruch in Lake Geneva and had the reception at the Lake Geneva Yacht Club.

“Our wedding day as everything I could have hoped for, and more. We kept to a very traditional Catholic wedding mass. “Annie’s Song” by John Denver was played on the piano while guests sat, a song my dad would always sing to me. I remember not having an ounce of nervousness and just wanting to marry my guy already! Eddie cried as I walked up the aisle holding my dad’s arm, and kept whispering “I love you” throughout the mass, I will always remember that… The priest made us kiss twice because he didn’t think the first kiss was quite long enough!… Perhaps one of my favorite memories was how we got to our reception. After the mass we met our bridal party at the Lake Geneva Riviera where we boarded an old wooden boat, The Polaris. At the reception, Eddie and I had our first dance to “Free” by Zac Brown Band, one of our favorites! It was truly one for the books. Our wedding reception will always be one of the most fun nights of our lives!” – Annie
