Sophia & Connor: A Breathtaking Wedding in Lake Geneva, WI
January 21, 2021
After an instant connection that blossomed at a local YMCA bible study, Sophia and Connor quickly fell head over heels for each other.
It wasn’t long before the idea of a proposal was on the table, and after a brief stint of long distance, Connor was on his way back to Wisconsin to surprise Sophia by popping the question.
“I had no idea that he was coming—he told me he wouldn't be able to call me at our usual time because he was working all day. My best friend took me for a drive that night and said, ‘For old times’ sake, let’s get dressed up like we can go out and eat somewhere.’ She [then] dropped me off at home later, and when I walked in the lights were on. There was a trail of roses leading to the living room [where] Connor was down on one knee.”
Seriously, how romantic!
Sophia and Connor both hold Christianity close to their hearts, so one month after the proposal, they got married at an intimate ceremony where only 4 people attended. 3 months after that, they were able to celebrate with a larger group of friends and family at the stunning historic Maxwell Mansion in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
While COVID-19 was at play during the wedding planning process for the couple, Sophia found that organizing this event during the pandemic went smoothly for her.
We mean, when it’s a wedding that looks like this, how could you not want to participate?!
Sophia looked like a bridal gem in our effortlessly beautiful Moira gown—an ultra-feminine A-line wedding dress with unique floral lace embroidery, plunging V-neckline and low open back.
There were countless priceless memories from their special day, but one in particular really stuck in Sophia’s heart:
BRB, we need to grab a tissue.
Even though Sophia and Connor tied the knot during COVID-19, they believe they couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The weather was sunny, their family and friends were in attendance and love was abundant! If there’s one thing Sophia wants other real brides to keep in mind, it’s this:
Here’s to love!
