STACY + ALEX - HAWKS VIEW - LAKE GENEVA, WI - 2015 WEDDING - PART I: CEREMONY
Stacy and Alex couldn't have had a more perfect day for their wedding at Hawks View Golf Club in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. I was looking forward to spending the day with them once more after having a great time in their home town of Chicago last Fall for their engagement session.
We started the day with some detail shots of the dress hanging in the beautiful garden area of Hawks View. The shoes, rings, and flowers looked great under the natural light coming through the reception hall windows. There were plenty of vibrant plants and flowers to nestle the rings in. On to the Bridal Suite, filled with helpful mothers and bridesmaids, to check on the preparation progress of the (always cheerful) Bride to be. Back to the garden for some bridal portraits (love that veil!) and formals of the ladies. First Look time! We hopped in a golf cart and took Alex to the covered bridge to await his bride. The anticipation was palpable as Stacy crept up behind, tapped Alex on the shoulder and they embraced each other with pure joy. After some one on one photo time under that awesome covered bridge, we drove back to the venue but took a pit stop at a lone tree surrounded by a low stone wall. The long veil worked it's magic in the breeze. The wedding party eagerly awaited the arrival of the stars of the show and we took some fun group photos out in the sun. The ceremony was held on the open terrace overlooking the rolling hills of green. The processional started with an adorable quintet of ring bearers and flower girls and concluded with a proud father escorting a grinning bride to be. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and family shared some celebratory beer in the garden before squeezing in for some photos.
