Congratulations to Lauren and PJ who got engaged at the elegant Baker House Mansion in Lake Geneva, WI. It turns out, Lauren and PJ are charming romantics that have great taste especially when it comes to selecting a glamorous, vintage location for their engagement and wedding.
As a National Registered Historic Property, the Baker House has a quite an interesting history which includes being a Speakeasy in the 1930’s during Prohibition. Nearby, the Maxwell Mansion, which will be the site for Lauren and PJ’s reception, is overflowing with history and charm. Not to mention, this summer residence has hosted a number of social/political dignitaries, including General Grant and Nancy Davis, who later became first lady Nancy Reagan.
As a backdrop for wedding photographs, we’re excited about all the possibilities: there’s a distillery & bar (with vintage glass chemistry equipment) and a slightly secretive Speakeasy room that’s faintly lit with red light.
We really enjoyed a beautiful tour with Lauren and PJ of both mansions as we all admired the vintage craftsmanship and historic details everywhere you’d look. I must say though; even better than the historic beauty is the top-notch personalities of Lauren and PJ.
Lauren and PJ, you have so far, and we know you will on your wedding day – you two lovebirds are going to make this place glow!
