Sara + Christopher 08-02-08 (Part 1)

Well, I am finally back from my July wedding hiatus and started August with a bang. I had two amazing and totally different weddings in one wonderful weekend. On Saturday I photographed the magical wedding of Sara and Christopher. The two met as students at Penn State and have been together ever since. Many of their alumni friends were there to share their special day. I’m going to do a “2 parter” here as there are just so many stunning details. (And everyone knows how I love the details!) I fell in love with Saras gorgeous Vera Wang gown that she purchased at Suky Occasions. It’s such a new design that it is not even in the magazines yet. Check out the striking detail on the bodice. The wedding took place at the beautiful Winterthur Estate in Wilmington, Delaware. The beauty of the grounds of this former DuPont Estate is legendary and I was so fortunate to finally have the opportunity to photograph a wedding there. The flowers and décor were by the always amazing Donna O’Brien of Beautiful Blooms. I loved the gorgeous bay leaf garland down the ceremony aisle (yummy smell) and the crystals hanging in the green arch above their ceremony. I’ll have more floral details in Part 2. The wedding program “fan” that was very useful for a humid August wedding. Guests could open it up if they needed a little breeze! All the printed materials were by Two Paper Dolls. Tune in tomorrow for some more beautiful images of the day! It’s good to be back!
