Riverside Receptions Wedding | Geneva, IL | Marlena + Austin

HIghschool sweethearts Marlena and Austin were married on the most glorious June this past weekend at the beautiful Riverside Receptions in Geneva, IL. 2018 is a huge year for them- Marlena just graduated from college, they are getting married, and then will be moving to North Carolina where Austin is stationed with the Marines. Although they have been together for over five years, they have spent quite a bit of that time living apart. I asked them what they have found the best way to stay connected to be, and this it what they had to say: "Communication is key (so clichรฉ but true!) to keeping the love alive weather you are living together and seeing each other all of the time or miles and hours apart for long periods of time."

Riverside Receptions was the perfect backdrop for their day full of laughter, happy tears, and fun. Marlena said, "When we looked at Riverside I immediately liked the atmosphere and ambiance it had; it was unique. I looked at a different reception hall that was just like any other, and this one was just different in such a good way! I could picture having our wedding at Riverside."

Congratulations you two! It was such an honor to spend the day with you celebrating your relationship with so many people that care so deeply about you both!
