Sequence of train travel in Switzerland?

Hey guys! My husband and I are looking to spend our one year wedding anniversary in Switzerland (October 20th to the 30th, with both the 20th and 30th being plane travel days). We have three places that we wanted to go: Geneva, Lausanne, and Zermatt. Luckily these three places seem to be within convenient train-traveling routes of one another.

My question is where do we start and what should our sequence be? The obvious conclusion that we originally reached was to fly into Geneva and take a train to Lausanne and then to Zermatt. But how would we easily get back to an airport to fly home from Zermatt? It seems redundant to just take the same train back the way we came. We're trying to make this as easy as possible. Also, any cool hotel recommendations would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Ps: home for us is the southern United States.

Geneva (Switzerland)   Zermatt (Switzerland)   Lausanne (Switzerland)

GenevaLausanneZermatt, these places go from west to east and as far as I know there is only one train route going between these places. 

Luckily, Swiss trains are awesome and the views enchanting!

All hotels in there will be clean and welcoming, so just pick the one you like most

The logic sequence and as well travel follow through by train and flight is:




From Geneva there are frequent direct trains to Lausanne
From Lausanne to Zermatt you take the train to Brig and you change there
to the train to Zermatt.

For going to Zermatt - check upfront as well the specials offered by SBB
(swiss rail) for doing trips.
My recommendation is to take the special ticket which leaves after 9 am
and do a daytrip... these are discounted and you can take as many trains
and busses for a whole day.

If you want to stay in Zermatt book in time as prices raise quickly when snow starts to fall (which is your timeframe).
