Oscar Swan Wedding in Geneva, IL with one AWESOME couple! This was a beautiful, fun, down to earth yet elegant wedding from start to finish. This was my first time photographing a wedding at the Oscar Swan in Geneva and I was amazed as soon as I started down the secluded drive… it’s this gorgeous, gem of a place that’s like a secret garden in the midst of busy Geneva! I never knew it was there. I walked the grounds and knew right away that this was going to be the perfect backdrop for a wedding. There were options for backdrops galore!
And the wedding itself, I was super excited about. I had no idea how Elvis, a magician and live owls would come together for a wedding… but it was GREAT! Guests were thoroughly entertained the entire afternoon into the evening, but not in a hokey way. It was like a backyard party… it was comfortable and the setting was classic.
I really adore all the personal touches that were added to make this wedding truly unique. The flower girls dropped mint leaves, so that when the bride walked down the isle you could smell the fresh mint as its pleasant aroma was released under her feet!
And the bride made this beautiful, rustic looking cake that is by far… the most beautiful cake I’ve seen all year!!!
I am truly blessed to have been a part of this day. One beautiful couple, joining together in a lovely place with all their closest friends and family. THANK YOU for entrusting me to document your wedding day!
