Last Bridal Show of the Year

Wedding

If you didn’t catch us at the Chestnut Club or Sheraton bridal shows, you missed a good time. I literally met with hundreds of brides, grooms, bridesmaids, mothers, and a few fathers. These weddings ranged from next month to dates far into 2013.

Weddings shows are just a whirlwind and it usually takes me a day or so to come down from all that wedding frenzy.

Here are a few pictures from the Sheraton show…

And after!


Yes, that’s how happy LDP will make you.




Don’t fret if you missed us. You have one more chance this year. I’ll be at the beautiful and historic Glen Foerd Mansion on November 7th for “The Ultimate Elegant Bridal Event“.

Here are some tips for you bridal show newbies:

  • Set up a wedding email account. You’ll be getting so much information that it’ll be nice to have one place for it all so you don’t overload your everyday inbox.
  • Pre-register so you don’t have to deal with the lines. It’s generally cheaper for you too.
  • Vendors will want to know your wedding details so make adhesive labels so you’re sure everything gets down properly. Include bride and groom names, wedding date, wedding location, email address, and mailing address.
  • Bring a sturdy bag. You’ll get a ton of brochures, magazines, pamphlets, etc. It gets heavy.
  • Wear comfortable shoes. You’ll likely be there for a few hours.
  • Know what vendors you still need and think about what is important to you with each wedding component. Bring questions. You’re under no obligation to purchase anything so ask away! You have all of these experts at your fingertips – make use of them!
  • Bring a camera and a notebook to help jog your memory for which vendor went with what.
  • Bring a buddy – your future spouse, mom, or someone in your wedding party. They’ll be good to help you remember details and bounce opinions off of later. I don’t recommend little kids or strollers; it can get very cramped in there.
  • If you want some one-on-one time with a vendor, your best bet is during the fashion show.
  • Bring a bottle of water or at least hydrate before the show.
  • Take note of any show specials but don’t feel obligated to sign on the spot. Many vendors offer specials that are good for a few days or weeks following the event.
  • Be prepared for information overload.
  • Enjoy it!

See you on the 7th at Glen Foerd Mansion!

Hsin-Ying + Mike: A Garden Wedding at Brantwyn Estate
Let me first say that Brantwyn Estate in Wilmington, Delaware is beautiful. It is located on the grounds of the DuPont Country Club. This mansion is so well maintained and the grounds are drool-worthy with lush landscaping and bursts of color everywhere.Now onto my couple, Hsin-Ying and Mike. They met at UC Davis in 2002 and their relationship has obviously flourished since. If they were burnt out from their massive celebration in Taiwan last fall or their city hall ceremony in California, I certainly couldn't tell. This multicultural wedding was beautiful and so much fun.Hsin-Ying, her crew, and dress with no less than 5 feet of train ( ...

Silly Superstitions and Traditions
So I've spent hours this morning poking around on Flickr, particularly through the favorites stream of Lagomorph. I just couldn't help myself. It's really fun to come up with a picture of someone just through the images that they favorite and Lagomorph's was amazingly expressive. For instance, she obviously has a thing for small woodland creatures like birds and deer and especially rabbits. She is crazy about crafts and all of the drool-worthy craftrooms out there that are filled to the brim with baskets, drawers, mason jars, tubs, spools, etc. Likewise, she's totally into the shabby chic style with Victorian details like lace, cameos, a ...

Delaware Wedding Photographer | Immanuel Episcopal Church | Alexa + Donny
Alexa loooooves herself some bling and she’s not afraid to show it.  She’s a total girly girl and she found herself a country guy – their complimentary personalities were immediately obvious at their Longwood Gardens engagement session last year when she showed up in frills and he in jeans. Their wedding day was fantastic.  The ladies prepped at Alexa’s family’s house in Newark.  There were plenty of personal flourishes like her grandmother’s handkerchief and prayer book (used as her ring pillow) and her special brooch bouquet (with an extra brooch given to her by her mother from her travels). And of course the dress!  This was ...
