A Roaring 1920’s Wedding: Geneva + Matt

Matt is a writer and Geneva is an artist. They both love antiquing and Geneva’s ring is from the 1920s. Their gorgeous venue, the Clarke Estate was also built in the 20’s so they thought it would be fun to have a roaring 20’s party! Saying their vows under a large tree in the middle of an orchard, surrounded by the loveliest of friends + family and dancing to the romantic tunes of Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Fred Astaire, their wedding was pretty magical. Thanks so much to Joy at Wildflowers Photography  for letting me share these gorgeous photos with you all today!

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.

Any advice for those planning right now? Start now! We did everything big really early on such as venue, catering, flowers and clothing.. and dealt with the details at the end. Hire creative people to do exactly what you want! And Wildflowers photography is the best ever! I highly recommend using Joy for any photoshoot you may have coming up. She has a way of capturing every heartfelt moment.

I couldn’t agree more! Congrats to Geneva + Matt! And be sure to check out their fun amelie themed engagement session that Wildflowers photography captured also! :)
