First Blog Of The New Year! Sarah & John | 12.12.12 Geneva Wedding

2012 was a GREAT year!  I am really looking forward to the new year and new things to come, but to say good bye to year 2012, I am blogging a farewell post to the year as my first of 2013!  This is a sneak peek of the lovely 12.12.12 wedding of Sarah & John, the couple that won our Geneva Bride/Geneva Wedding contest for a FREE wedding!  There were tons of generous donations from Geneva vendors, including invitations, programs, planning and coordination by Leanne at You Name It Events, menus by Invitations By Design, dresses & accessories by Crystal Bride & Veiled in Elegance, personal flowers & church decor by Elizabeth Wray, reception flowers and decor by Town and Country Gardens, awesome DJ service by Music By Design, delicious desserts by Cocoa Bean and The Sugar Path, the wonderful venues of Herrington Inn and Riverside Receptions, dancing lessons by Vargos Dance, video by The Guys Media and of course, photography by me and Tom Nicol!  There were many more generous donations made - check them all out here.  Tom has more great images on his blog as well!  Here are just a few sneak peeks from the day - we started at Herrington to get ready and for a first look, then traveled around Geneva to great spots like Grahams', Dodson Place and The Little Traveler.  We ended up at Island Park before walking over the bridge to get to the church on time for their ceremony!  Then they had a horse drawn carriage to the reception and danced the night away.  Everything was just perfect and we were even covered on the Channel 7 News!  Thank you to all my fellow vendors for all your hard work and Sarah and John for making the day so beautiful and easy to photograph :) For all you future brides!  CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement and check us out at the Geneva Wedding Walk on March 3rd, 2013!!!
