Stephanie + Gabriella • Hotel DuPont Wedding
Stephanie and Gabriella were getting ready in palatial-sized rooms for their Hotel DuPont wedding in Wilmington, DE, before they headed outside for their first look, where they peeped around the corner of the building and saw each other for the first time! Joined by their bridesmaids and the cutest ring bearer and flower girl, we took photos around the hotel before it was time to head back inside for their intimate ceremony. The room was packed with their friends and family as their exchanged vows and rings, and then we were off to Old City! Down in Elfreth’s Alley, we dodged the tourists and snuck into the tress between houses to get a quiet moment. They laughed and embraced by the brick and colorful doorways of the centuries-old homes, and we took a quick walk down North Second Street and poked into United By Blue, a totally awesome coffee shop, complete with an old motorcycle and a wall of photos inside (if you’re ever nearby, stop in – the people who run it are fantastic and they have great coffee!!). Before we knew it, it was reception time! Richmond Hall was so warm and welcoming to Stephanie and Gabriella, and they had an immense amount of fun – guests and staff included! Now at this point, I could start talking about their amazing cake, cute details, or how wonderful everyone was, but let me stop you there and say this: milk and cookie bar. You read that right. Milk. Cookies. In the form of a bar. *commence freaking out* I think I’m going to require every couple have this, because not only is it a phenomenal dessert idea, but it’s a delicious one as well. So good!!!
So: take a look! Fall in love with these two – they’re head over heels in love, they positively cute together, and this wedding was an absolute joy, start to finish. These two are already on their way to a life of happiness together, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!!
