Brantwyn Estate Summer Wedding

Brantwyn Estate garden wedding

Katie + Mac

Brantwyn Estate Wedding

Wilmington, Delaware


Katie and Mac were married on the perfect Sunday on Labor Day weekend in the prettiest garden at Brantwyn Estate in Wilmington, Delaware. We love this beautiful estate filled with lush gardens and butterflies. Katie and Mac made full use of all the beautiful spaces in this estate.

This wedding gave us all the feels and brought me to tears several times. The first look alone was epic and tears of joy filled and deserves it’s own blog post! First Katie and Mac read their letters in the charming side garden, Katie in the upstairs balcony of the bridal suite and Mac downstairs sitting on a bench directly under the balcony. They couldn’t see each other but they both cried their eyes out! Then they did the first look in the side garden. If you are getting married and on the fence about whether you should do a first look, check out the images below.

There were so many things we loved about this wedding, the weather was mild and refreshing with a hint of fall. We LOVED the flowers, the colors, the setting and how everything came together in such a perfect way for these two and their families. And come on, aren’t Katie and Mac the CUTEST?

How gorgeous is the flower arbor by Sweet Peas? We were so happy to see this elegant arbor in the sunken garden at Brantwyn where Katie and Mac had their wedding ceremony. I love the flower colors of lavender and deep purples chosen by Katie.

Paige was the wedding coordinator for Brantwyn and she did a fabulous job, holding flowers, busling dresses and generally just being a joyful presence. Katie decided to do introductions and toasts outside on the lawn, this a new idea and it worked so well. Some of these Delaware Estates have pretty small rooms so this allowed people to spread out and enjoy the great weather. We loved it so much that now I’d love to see this done for all our weddings. Check out the images below of the toasts.

We also got to work along side with one of the sweetest DJs, Mike Simmons of Must Be the Music DJs.

Brett + Matt

Hotel DuPont Wedding

Wilmington, Delaware


Brett and Matt were married on a perfect summer day in the elegant and classy Hotel DuPont. We love all beautiful floral designs created by RAM Floral. Brett and Matt’s ceremony was held in the charming du Barry room under a gorgeous chuppa. We love using the front entry way into the hotel for formals, where it’s bright and has a timeless appeal, there’s always a breeze and it’s shady to keep guest cool. The reception was in the stunning Gold Ballroom, which is a guest favorite. It never grows old hearing the guest sigh out loud and ooh and ah in response to the beauty of the space when they open the doors to the ballroom. The Hotel DuPont is the perfect place for elegant summer wedding.

Emily + Robbie

St Anthony’s Church + Hotel DuPont Wedding

Wilmington, Delaware


Emily and Robbie were married on a steamy hot Friday at St Anthony’s and had their classic wedding reception at the Hotel DuPont Gold Ballroom. We love all the classy architecture and that beautiful ornate front facade of the Hotel DuPont which is perfect for formals, especially on a hot summer day.

Emily and Robbie met from a mutual friend originally to be roommates but she ended up telling him she did to want to live with him because she thought he was cute!

Emily says, “Our first date: He made a bet over a Villanova basketball championship game to go on a date with me. If Villanova won, he had to take me out to dinner and if Villanova lost, I had to take him out to dinner. It was a win win!”

Emily says, “What we loved most about our wedding was being around all the people we care most about. From California to Delaware. The indescribable feeling of love and support still is strong!”

Jaclyn + TJ

Jaclyn and TJ were married Saturday on a brisk fall day full of sunshine and lots of love at Assumption BVM Church and had their reception at the always beautiful Winterthur Museum and Gardens. We couldn't be more excited for these two and their sweet families!

We can’t get over how pretty all the getting ready photos are in Jaclyn and TJ’s gorgeous new home and how fabulous Jaclyn looked in her gown from From Clair’s Fashions. Doesn’t everyone in this wedding party just look like perfection in their beautiful purple dresses and those flowers by Belak Flowers are the prettiest! The photography was done by an associate photographer.
