melissa & james // hotel du pont

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 🙂
