A Wedding Story Despite COVID
We met Justin and Kendall through one of our regular customers. We learned that they had to postpone the big wedding they were planning and instead hold a smaller backyard wedding with their closest friends and family.
The couple came to Lake Geneva on the date they were supposed to get married and spent the day shopping and picnicking by the lake. We wanted to make their day special, even though it was very obviously not how they planned it, and we gave them a little picnic set-up to celebrate with them.
A couple months later, they held their backyard wedding, which turned out beautifully. Through our Bridal Registry, they selected some gorgeous pieces for their new home.
Justin and Kendall handled the curve ball of a pandemic like champs, and we loved getting to know them along the way! Here are a few photos from their beautiful day.

However, whatever circumstance your newlyweds find themselves in, we want to help you pick out a gift that will make them smile and warm their hearts! Here are some of our favorite picks.
