    Hi!  Here are my recommendations.  My wedding was almost a year ago in Lake Geneva.

    Florist - Pesches.  They did everything so beautifully and it was EXACTLY what I wanted.  They are also very affordable.

    Photographer - Ideal Impressions Photography.  The best decision I've ever made!  They were so creative and so efficient.  I love my slideshow and photos so much.

    Videographer - Ideal Impressions also did it and put together the most beautiful video (you can see it in my blog).

    DJ: B.B.'s Best out of Burlington is good.  Medley's in Motion (out of Nothern Illinois) is AMAZING!

    We had our rehearsal at Gordy's in Fontana.  They have a private upper room with gorgeous views of the lake.

    All I have for now is a florist reccomendation. Judy's Florist out of Harvard Illinois (appx. 30 mins from LG on main roads) is wonderfully refreshing. I am going through her for my floral over Peshes, Sentry, and others in the area.

    I'll tell you my worked quote so you can compare: (depends on how many flowers and what type, I am going with the minimum and white roses)

    Boutineres: $4
    Corsages: $8
    Bouquets (Bms and toss) $15-$30
    My bouquet (Cascading) $50-$70

    I didnt ask about centerpieces or anything, just a quideline for help.

    i am getting married in Lake Genva at Geneva National.
    I am working with Polly of Polly's Petals, she is great, works out of her home and only will do one wedding a day!
    We hired Medley's in Motion, they are a bit expensive but i think we will be so happy with them, Greg (owner/DJ) seems awesome!

    We are using Michelle Martin photography 2 photographers for the price of one and her work is beautiful!!

    Planning my wedding in Lake Geneva for next July :)

    I'll be having my rehearsal dinner @ Geno's East Pizzaria! Used to be Maxx's Road house. They have fantastic deep dish pizza, party trays, and other catering options for larger parties but still casual!

    Also I have heard amazing things about Ideal Impressions... they were recommended to me by my caterer but I haven't gotten that far yet :)
