Grand Geneva Resort Wedding Photos

                 Ashley and Seth’s Wedding Photos – Grand Geneva Resort, WI

When I first met Ashley and Seth, we really hit it off and had a great connection. Ashley and Seth had their wedding on the same day as my birthday, so we had a great time all hanging out together. The couple remembered my birthday and did something extra special for me as I was photographing them. They brought out a birthday cake for me and sang happy birthday. It was a very nice and unexpected surprise.

One of the most sexy bridal parties
I started with the ladies getting their hair and make up done at Grand Geneva Resort in Wisconsin.

The ladies are incredibly easy going and Patty, brought a selfie stick. All of Ashley’s friends love taking photos and were taking many selfies throughout the wedding.
Getting ready groomsmen
Seth was getting ready at the same hotel, so it was easy to cover both the getting ready process.

They had a picture of Seth’s father in his place, because he had unfortunately passed away, but everyone had him in their hearts.


The ceremony was right outside of the hotel and beautifully placed in front of a lake.

Ashley’s father, Steven Brown, was the officiant for the wedding and he did an amazing job. It was very moving.
Wedding ceremony during sunset light
The ceremony began shortly before sunset, so we had a lot of beautiful warm light surrounding us.
When the ceremony was finished, we did not have a lot of time for a photo session, so we took a couple of one-on-one photos of the newly weds near the lake as the sun was going down.

Kathy, the venue manager, was very quick to point us to the best places to take pictures on the property. The bridal party was a lot of fun to work with and we had a couple of fun sessions with them pulling both the bride and groom away from each other near the lake.

To end the day, the reception started with an introduction of the couple and bridal party, then there was cake cutting and speeches along with dinner.
