Kim & Justin // Mendenhall Inn

We have had so many beautiful weddings at Mendenhall Inn and Kim & Justin’s wedding was no different.  We had such a wonderful day planned with these two and couldn’t have asked for better weather.  We started the day at the Mendenhall Inn and their beautiful home where Deleware’s lighthouse sits right on their property!  It was a first for us and was an amazing backdrop for photographs.

We planned a first reveal for the future Mr. & Mrs followed by a trip to Longwood Gardens for some amazing bridal & family portraits.  We really lucked out and only a few patrons were visiting that day so we had access to the gardens pretty much to ourselves.  We had plenty of time to enjoy the afternoon and capture some amazing photographs, the lighting was perfect!

Their ceremony was held in the Atrium at The Mendenhall Inn, a very intimate and heartfelt affair, we up-lit the ceremony site and it really set the tone.  The grand ballroom at Mendenhall Inn is a spectacular space.  We used our up-lights again to really showcase the magnitude of the room.  We’ve said it before, up-lights really do enhance a room incredibly, see for yourself!

Congratulations Kim and Justin!  Your wedding was fantastic and we’re so honored to have photographed your special day.  Only the best for you two and your future together!

Sometimes we have couples come into the studio with ideas or themes for their wedding.  Melissa and James had a fantastic vision for their wedding, from the venue to the font used on invitations and place cards, they nailed it.  The Great Gatsby was a amazing film that Melissa used as inspiration for her wedding day.

We prepared for the ceremony at her parent’s home and gushed over all the perfect details.  Her dress, jewelry – even her engagement ring, save the date and hair style all fit perfectly together.

The ceremony was held at St. Mary Magdalen in Media, Melissa’s church growing up.  We were able to use our fish eye lens to capture the architecture and all the family and friends who came to support their marriage and their new life together.

We had a great window of time for bridal party portraits.  Nemours Mansion and Gardens is not only a perfect stop on the way to Hotel Dupont, but it BEAUTIFUL.   As photographers, we couldn’t have asked for a better back drop for these images.

To add to the list of spectacular sights, Hotel DuPont…wow.  All coming together at their reception, their Great Gatsby theme certainly came full circle.  We had a wonderful time with Melissa and James, they executed a perfect Great Gatsby style wedding with their own flare:-)
