Weddings at the Lake: Jenna + Liam

When Chicagoans Jenna and Liam were engaged, they knew immediately a wedding at the lake was a must. Over the years, Jenna had spent countless sun-splashed days at her parent’s Fontana lake house, but Geneva Lake has been more than just a vacation getaway for her — it’s family, friendship, love and home. And as Liam was introduced to the area, his love for lake life grew as well. So, it was only fitting that their rehearsal dinner was held in the Lakeshore Room at Chuck’s and their wedding and reception at The Abbey Resort. Although rain fell the day Jenna and Liam were married, nothing could dampen their spirits or those of the 250 friends and family members in attendance. Guests enjoyed fun, Wisconsin-themed appetizers and New Glarus Spotted Cow Beer before a sumptuous dinner, and then danced the night away to the tunes of an eight- piece band complete with full horn section.
