Delaware Wedding Photographer | Brantwyn Estate | Hannah + Travis

Wedding

Hannah and Travis were all nerves the day of their wedding at Brantwyn Estate in Wilmington, Delaware. They were just as sweet that day as they were on their engagement session at Ridley Creek State Park. The day was beautiful and the butterflies in their stomachs were going crazy as the start time to the wedding was upon them.

Hannah could not have looked any more gorgeous.

There was some lace from her grandmother’s wedding dress and her grandparents’ attached to her bouquet.

Brantwyn looked fantastic that day.

The ladies were buzzing by the windows as they watched the guests gather in the lower gardens for the ceremony.

Several deep breaths and a few tears between Hannah and her father before they walked out the doors.

Travis got so teary during the ceremony at the rehearsal the night before that Hannah wouldn’t even attempt it. She just knew she would be a mess. Travis and Hannah unconsciously played with each other’s hands throughout the ceremony.

They were so relieved when the ceremony was over!

After the cocktail hour, the guests gathered on the back lawn for Hannah and Travis to share their first dance together and husband and wife, “Whatever It Is” by the Zac Brown Band.

The formalities pretty much ended after that. Guests went inside to eat, drink, and dance their butts off. Hannah and Travis pretty much stayed by each others’ side all evening long, chatting with guests and rocking it on the dancefloor.

It was a fantastic day and I am so happy for you two!

Cause when she loves me
Girl that’s how I feel
Cause when she loves me I’m on top of the world
Cause when she loves me I can live forever
And she loves me I am untouchable

Karen + Mark: Wedding in Palo Alto’s Garden Court Hotel
I went down to Palo Alto with the talented Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography the other week to photograph the wedding of Karen & Mark at the Garden Court Hotel. I absolutely loved the location. It had elements of a Spanish villa and felt so self-contained, as if it could have been in the middle of nowhere.Karen herself was the picture of elegance. She just exuded it. Very simple makeup, very little jewelry, and a very classy and sleek hairdo. When going through the pictures I couldn't help but feel that they should be in black and white since she had that feeling about her. Her dress was a very lovely and simple strapless Maggie S ...

Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Gabi + Kristof
Gabi and Kristof had so many flourishes for their Aldie Mansion wedding to make it all theirs.  So much creativity and musical references and I don’t even know if I’ll be able to share them all in this one post.  But here it goes! We started pictures at Gabi’s parents’ house in Doylestown.  Gabi, the ever stylish one, donned bright red lipstick and a gorgeous lace sleeved overlay over her wedding gown.  I love that sleeves are coming back into fashion and Gabi managed to seamlessly blend several eras into the day.  The bride herself was stunningly vintage. The sapphire and diamond bracelet and earrings that she wore fit with her eng ...
