Get to know one of our favorite weddings of all times — this vintage approach with incredible venues made for a spectacular William Penn Inn weddings. At the William Penn Inn, the two splurged with their couples portraits, spending time both indoors and out (highly recommend!). From fabulous food to the incredible guests who traveled from all over, this was an amazing wedding.
William Penn Inn Weddings: The Details
Brandeana and Sebastian made capturing all these details so so easy. The two put together a box for each room so that I could come in, dress the details, shoot them, and hand them over for each to use to get dressed. Having the box of details stuff all set together made it easy to grab and take to the spot with the best light and keep things from getting lost. This box can be packed up as late as the night before the wedding and as soon as you have all the details.
Part of what makes these weddings is using the right space. The brand new Homewood Suites by Hilton Wilmington Downtown was the PERFECT getting ready location for any photographer. There’s so much we can do with floor to ceiling and wall to wall windows. The rooms were also wide open and had a beautiful style to them.
William Penn Inn Weddings: Getting Ready…
The space, light in the rooms, harshness of morning light made for incredible opportunities to play with light and exposure in the images for getting ready. Creating more unique images is really important to me, and pushing to create these really unique but vintage-y feel getting ready images was such a priority.
William Penn Inn Weddings: The Ceremony at a Wilmington Church
We’re all about the moments, ya know, most photographers are. And why wouldn’t we be? Getting the privilege to be witness to the moment you realize you’re getting married, or you’re marrying the love of your life, just all the moments in a day, it’s a privilege that you can’t put a figure on. Getting to hear love stories weekend after weekend is like hitting the emotional jackpot. Whether the love story is awkward, or short or long and epic, we love a good one and we love getting to be a part of all those moments on your day.
The best thing you can do for yourself is take wedding portraits in as many locations as possible (and don’t look at the camera…). Play with spaces that are indoors, and outdoors, do some in harsh light, golden hour, outside at night — just play and get diversity. The indoor spaces at the William Penn Inn is a perfect match to the vintage vibes of this wedding — add a little flash and we were good to go!
