Real Brides: Geneva + Matt

January 25th, 2012 – Comment

What a beautiful Great Gatsby themed wedding! Geneva is stunning in the Chantal gown!

From the Bride:

Most memorable part of your wedding day? It was when the whole wedding party did our dance to Bette Midler’s “Boogie Woogie Boy.” Everyone didn’t even know how to react but what came out of it was hilarious and fun! It ended with Matt being picked up and spun around like a doll by one of his groomsmen.
