Real Wedding: Rachel and Geoff’s Elegant Spring Affair

As many of our local Madisonians know, the Edgewater Hotel provides its wedding couples with an exquisite event experience, with gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces, incredible staff, and lake views that can’t be beat. It’s no secret, then, that whenever we get the chance to work there, we jump at the opportunity. And when a couple as beautiful and elegant as Rachel and Geoff are our muses, well, let’s just say that pulling off a stunning weekend isn’t that hard to do!

Rachel and Geoff’s gorgeous spring wedding centered around a classic color palette and understated decor. In choosing marble chargers from Event Essentials, romantic tones of blush and burgundy, and gorgeous floral by daffodil*parker, Rachel and Geoff’s day maintained an understated sense of ease AND elegance all at once. And speaking of elegance, how STUNNING did Rachel look that day?!

Though the weather that weekend was unseasonably hot, Rachel and Geoff and their families managed to pull off one cool celebration. Please enjoy these select images from their wedding weekend at the Edgewater!
