Dresses varied ever so slightly in style to fit the style and body type of each bridesmaid. These flowing dresses were a hit from the aisle to the dancefloor and complemented Geneva’s all-over lace gown beautifully.

The Schaffles chose to complement the rich burgundy dresses with classic tan suits for the groomsmen. Tying in the warm red tones with maroon ties, the wedding party had a beautifully cohesive look that was perfect for the waterfront venue. However, the couple decided that the groom would wear a navy suit to stand out from the bunch, creating a beautiful color scheme for the entire party. They topped off the look with fun socks on the groomsmen to add a little personality to the dressed-up attire.
