Sam & Alex wanted an outdoor wedding with old timey charm that also felt modern. The Oscar Swan Inn in Geneva, IL was exactly that! It is a bed and breakfast with huge beautiful gardens that were perfect for their ceremony and reception. Sam got ready upstairs with the girls, I love seeing matching robes! Jason was with Alex while he got ready downstairs with the guys. Once everyone was ready, it was time for a first look.
We got to do lots and lots of wedding party and couple's photos all around the property. They had plenty of time to stay out of sight and relax before the big moment. The ceremony was so sweet, there were tears and plenty of laughter. When Alex was about to say his vows, he paused, looked up from the paper and said "Sam, I love you so much" I got chills, I was sooooooo hot yet I got chills. Sam had hidden her vows in the bouquet and took a minute for her maid of honor to locate them. After they were pronounced husband and wife, they had a receiving line and the cocktail hour began.
The reception started with a toast thanking and recognizing the grandparents, awwww! There were donuts from Harner's Bakery, lots of dancing and our Photo Booth was there too! What a sweet, hot, wonderful day! Cheers to you two!
