Carri and Jake met in grade school and enjoy traveling to South beach, going to the gym, playing with their pups, fine dining and wine.
The wedding and reception took place at Sunset Cove in Milford DE. Never doing a wedding here before, I drove slowly through a residential neighborhood before arriving at this lovely house perched on a hill next to a lake. Although the venue was nice enough from the outside, my assistant and I were not prepared to see such a beautiful space inside and around back or the property. Adorable tiki huts were set around the inviting pool which was enveloped in tropical plants and landscaping.
Carri got ready in the large bridal suite in the home. She had plenty of help from her bridesmaids and support as she made the decision to wait an extra half hour until the ceremony with the hopes that the rain will come to a stop.
The bride and her bridesmaids pose for one last group photo in their robes before getting dressed for the wedding ceremony.
The wedding ceremony starts and while it did rain lightly, fortunately heavy rain held off until immediately after. The trees and lake made for a perfect backdrop for Jake and Carri to say their vows.
The wedding ceremony takes place outside despite light rain and the change of heavy rain to come. I think everyone would agree it was well worth it such a lovely and earthy backdrop.
After the ceremony and formal portraits it was time to party!
It was a beautiful wedding and I was so honored to be a part of it and to document such an important day in this couple’s lives.
