Lyndsay & Justin

July 31, 2010 at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay

With a July 31st wedding date, Lyndsay Meissner and Justin Borkovetz employed summery accents–such as sand-colored groomsmen suits and bright pink bridesmaids bouquets–to keep their big day cool. Before the ceremony at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church (and later a reception at Stone Harbor Resort) Lyndsay wore her grandmother’s pearls, just as her sister did for her 2008 wedding, and also wore her mother’s floor-length veil. The family joined together for DIY aspects of the wedding too, as Lyndsay crafted Swarovski pearl necklaces with her sister and sewed the taffeta table runners with her mom, while Justin’s dad made the placecard holders. Come November, the lucky duo will escape Wisconsin’s wintry winds for a honeymoon in Maui.
