Nestled in the picturesque countryside, the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a dreamy escape for couples seeking amenities and sophistication. Their unique variety of indoor and outdoor venues can accommodate any guest count or vibe. Their unique Chalet hall is located by the ski hill and features large windows with scenic views, paver brick floors, exposed beams and large rustic chandeliers. Their ballroom options offer stunning lighting, clean wall lines, and tons of luxe touches.

3. The Treasury

This downtown Delavan gem is a charming building that boasts a classic-meets-contemporary vibe. It’s packed with historic grand architecture and tasteful craftsmanship. The historical bank interior has been completely renovated while keeping the original marble, wood, and newly exposed brick. The space is not only beautiful, but also very functional and designed with thoughtful details to accommodate you, your guests, and vendors as well.

5. Camp Wandawega

More of the outdoorsy type? Camp Wandawega is worth checking out! It’s definitely not your typical venue; they pride themselves with a real summer camp, “no-frills” feel. Make a weekend out of your wedding – have your guests stay onsite in the tents and bunkhouses, take a dip in the lake, and go say some vows in between. It’s the best spot for your laid-back, Wisco summer lake day wedding!

6. Boxed and Burlap

Boxed and Burlap isn’t your typical barn venue. The modern, updated interior features sky lights, white, tall ceilings, and giant glass doors, which let in a ton of light (perfect for dreamy photos)! The expansive back lawn makes for an excellent outdoor ceremony. Plus, there’s a sweet little bridal suite onsite to make getting ready a breeze!

7. Stone Manor

New to the wedding scene, Stone Manor is already turning heads! It’s the largest estate ever built on Geneva Lake (and also probably the most talked about). Reach out to Graceful Events, their exclusive planner, if you’re interested in hosting your wedding here!

8. Yerkes Observatory

The historic observatory is one of the most grand buildings in the state with its huge domed structures! Built in 1897, it’s been extensively restored to its period splendor.
