I love being a Destination Wedding Photographer! Erica’s mother found me and forwarded my information to her daughter Erica who lives in Baltimore. I was hired without a meeting and they were too busy with school to do an engagement session so I was going in cold to shoot the wedding. I don’t normally work that way, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. In fact, it went perfectly! The weather was perfect, the venue was beautiful, friends and family were amazing! I was shocked!!
Erica & Michael’s wedding was planned for the small park in Lewes right next to the reception venue. If you haven’t traveled to Lewes yet you must! It’s a mini Hamptons! The reception was held at the Inn at Canal Square off of Market Street. Super venue! Catering was provided by (I was super pumped when I found out) Touch of Italy. I actually ride 45 minutes to their restaurant a lot. It’s like visiting a deli up in in NY! Flowers were provided by Bryan of Ovando Floral Design in NY. They drove down first thing in the morning to make it and created amazing arrangements!
I met with Michael and some of his groomsmen first since the girls were still getting all done up at the salon and started shooting his details. Once the girls arrived I headed to their room and got to work. The ladies were loving their purple silk robes Erica got for them and didn’t want to change! When it was time, we headed to the park to start the ceremony. It was beautiful. When it was over they had a receiving line and I started to get ready for formal/family pics. After that we got to work on the reception and snuck back out during the night to do some silly shots and sexy time photos.
This wedding was so much fun! Erica & Michael have great family members and their friends are crazy! Really!! And there was some crazy Celine Dion thing going on too. Take a look at the photos & see for yourself. Leave a comment if you like them.
