Alison and Dan | A Blush and Greenery-Inspired Joyful Brantwyn Estate Wedding Day in Wilmington, Delaware

September 14, 2021

Gosh, what a DAY! My cheeks hurt from smiling so hard during Alison and Dan’s wedding day at Brantwyn Estate! When I arrived at their venue, I was instantly greeted by Alison and Dan’s dads… who were delivering all of the bridesmaids’ gowns, Alison’s dress, and all of her details! In addition to bringing everything to the venue for me to use for details (Ahead of timeline, I might add!), they also gave a great tour of the property— it was the perfect way to kick off the day! Alison’s dad works for DuPont and had occasionally attended meetings on the property prior to their wedding day, so he knew all the good spots and places we needed to visit! It was so sweet to see just how supportive and excited their friends and family were all day long.

When the ladies arrived to the venue from the salon, I was greeted with nothing but smiles from Alison— this girl was so READY for her wedding day! She had everything organized to a T which made the day go off without a hitch. Dan made for the most chill groom, enjoying the day with his guys and his bride by his side. These two thoughtfully considered every detail, so we were really able to focus on enjoying the day and had SO much time for portraits (A dream!).

I’m not sure what I loved more… how their color palette blended late summer and early fall perfectly, incorporating tones of blush, burgundy, and all the pretty greenery OR their wedding party who made the entire day so easy, helping with absolutely everything so Alison and Dan could enjoy every moment! I could list off about a million of my favorite memories from their day… the perfect weather, their intimate first look shared in the garden, Dan’s teary reaction when these two saw each other again at the altar, and the toast from Alison’s dad that had us all laughing until we cried… just to name a few, but honestly, I would much rather show you their joyful day. This wedding day was absolutely incredible… why don’t you start scrolling through some of my favorite moments from the day?!

I’ve been loving seeing couples incorporate custom vow books!

I’m actually obsessed with Alison’s pearl bracelet! How unique and gorgeous is it?!

Her florals were a perfect blend of late summer meets early fall… so gorgeous!

The sweetest first look with Alison’s bridesmaids!

Have I ever mentioned that first looks are my absolute favorite?!

Their wedding party was ON IT! It always makes the day so much more fun when the wedding party is as fun as they are organized!

Forever obsessed with these florals!

I knew a couple of Dan’s groomsmen from Katrina and Andrew’s wedding day! It was so much fun to see some familiar faces again!

The sweetest reaction from Dan!

MARRIED!

We had a GORGEOUS golden glow… I’m so grateful these two let me steal them for allll the golden hour portraits! I may be oversharing all the portraits, but can you blame me?!

They had envelopes on each table and encouraged guests to write a note for them to read every anniversary! I loved this touch— what a special way to celebrate your anniversary each year!

Remember these two on the left?! I photographed their wedding back in 2018! It was so good to see them again!

Thank you, Alison and Dan! It was an honor to photograph your gorgeous day!

A special thank you to the rockstar vendors that made Alison and Dan’s wedding day so incredible!
