Kelsey and Tyler’s sailboat elopement on Lake Geneva looked straight out of a postcard! For many couples, eloping is an appealing idea. Not only does an elopement offer the opportunity to celebrate your commitment in an intimate and meaningful way, but it allows you to avoid the stress and expenses of a traditional wedding. And when it comes to elopement destinations, few places can rival the beauty of Switzerland’s Lake Geneva!
Kelsey and Tyler know this firsthand. They traveled from their home state of Nevada in the United States to exchange their vows on Lake Geneva, surrounded by the breathtaking Alps. Their wedding day was nothing short of a dream, with gorgeous weather and a vintage sailboat setting the stage for the next chapter of their love story. I’m delighted I could assist as their destination wedding planner and florist!
Sailboat Elopement on Lake Geneva
The day began with Kelsey and Tyler getting ready at the luxurious Le Mirador Resort & Spa, overlooking the town of Vevey with panoramic views of the lake and mountains. They shared a first look before taking to the lake for their sailboat elopement. This moment for them to connect and share their excitement for the day ahead was so special!
As the couple boarded the boat, the anticipation in the air was palpable. The weather was a true gift—there wasn’t a single wave on the lake, creating a serene and romantic atmosphere for them to exchange their vows. Meanwhile, notes of live violin music floated on the breeze and contributed a soundtrack for their love and happiness.
After their ceremony, Kelsey and Tyler toasted with champagne and celebrated with a cake and a plate of local artisan cheeses. The boat cruised along the shores of the lake, allowing the newlyweds to take in the beauty of their surroundings and each other. Later, they concluded their picture-perfect day with a cozy dinner in a Swiss chalet restaurant.
