Delaware Wedding

Bride and groom after their ceremony

Amanda and Ambrose’s joyous Delaware wedding was the perfect example of how to not sweat the small stuff!  I’m happy to shoot in any sort of weather, but there is a difference between a soft pretty rain, and a total washout.  This was quite the monsoon storm of a day.  Amanda took every bit of it in stride and rolled with the punches.   Her day was so full of amazing friends and family that they chose not to spend a ton of time fighting the elements for photos.  They wanted to get right to their reception and enjoy the fabulous party, so that’s exactly what we did! I feel very fortunate to have been part of their wedding day.

Bridal Prep

Bridal Prep

Amanda’s Delaware wedding bridal prep and ceremony were both held at the Sheraton Wilmington South.  The bridal suite is large and lovely and Amanda was an absolutely stunningly beautiful bride. Surrounded by her closest friends and mom, the laughter was infectious and the champagne was flowing!

Ceremony

The couple were married at their church in Delaware, The Seeds of Greatness Ministries and Bible Church in New Castle.  It’s  a lovely congregation filled with love and support. And can we just talk about Ambrose’s suit that perfectly matched the background? Seriously a photographers dream!

Bridal Party and Bride and Groom

 After the ceremony, everyone wanted to get back to the hotel and party, but we stopped for a few cute photos before dashing off into the limo.  The bridal party was so much fun, and those rose gold dresses were amazing!

A Witchy Walk in the Woods with Lily Cheshire

Witch in the woods

Modern witch in the woods of Philadelphia

As a wedding photographer, I struggle with the off season.  It’s cold, I’m tired and I need to be creative to thrive.  Luckily I’m blessed with a partner who feels the same way and spectacularly magical friends who will collaborate for an afternoon of creating art.  It’s the perfect cure for my wintertime blues.

Lily Cheshire of Witch’s Way Craft is a good friend, who we’ve been fortunate to photograph over the years.  From many shoots when she was a young model, to her cemetery engagement shoot, and witchy wedding and now as an artist and business owner, it’s been quite an artistic journey.  Her shop is filled with beautiful candles, crystals, cauldrons and herbs.  I’ll admit to going home with a few Goddess candles the day we shot together.  I’m still drooling over the calcite sphere from the shoot!  I highly suggest you check it out!

We teamed up with Jessica Saint,  of Jessica Saint Beauty for hair and makeup and invaluable help on the shoot itself.  Paul and the three of us bundled up for the cold. We all carried armloads of gear, smoke bombs, candles, sage and cauldrons for a Witchy Walk in the Woods.  Lily brought a few looks, including stunning dress from Trashy Diva in New Orleans. It’s a beautiful dress that can be worn in two ways, providing us with a nice variety.  Her beautiful jewelry was from The Brass Dragon.  A little bit of nature, a little magic and beautiful art. It was a perfect day.
