Cape Henlopen Engagement Session

Engagement Sessions

Who doesn’t love a good beach engagement session, especially when the site is Delaware’s Cape Henlopen State Park? The second we saw the beyond-beautiful images from Michael and Carina Photography, we were sold — and knew they would be great inspiration for couples planning their e-sessions now. Congratulations on your engagement, Rebekah and Derric!

From the photographers, Michael and Carina Photography: Thinking about Rebekah and Derric’s beach engagement session in Delaware really gives us goosebumps. Rebekah and Derric can hardly remember a life before being a couple. They grew up together and want to grow old together. Who doesn’t melt at the thought of young love? Although we had never met Rebekah face-to-face, by the time of their engagement session, we had become friends.

Rebekah and Derric live in Pennsylvania, several hours from where we are in Virginia, so we don’t get to see each other face-to-face. We’ve gotten to know them over the past months through Facebook and telephone, planning each detail of their upcoming wedding in Lancaster, PA. We could hardly wait to finally meet them both in person! They picked Cape Henlopen in Delaware for their engagement session. It was perfect. Huge sand dunes, hidden pathways and the lovely, summery smell of sea salt in the air… most of all Cape Henlopen is special to them. It is a place filled with memories. When we asked them about their favorite spot in the world for an engagement session location, where they would just spend the perfect day together, there wasn’t any hesitation. This is so them. Being outdoors, having fun together. Riding bikes, holding hands, kissing in the forest, running at the beach and whispering “I love you.” This is young love.

From the photographer, Kristen of Hudson Nichols Photography: A small group of independent Delaware vendors wanted to create a stylish, relaxed and rustic shoot in the beautiful and airy warehouse rehearsal space of Opera Delaware to show brides why Delaware is a great state for weddings. In addition to being tax free for products and services, Delaware has a lot of character and unique scenery for beautiful weddings. With Emerald as the color of the year by Pantone, Lovely Girls came up with a color palette of Peach, Mint & Gold to compliment the bold hue. With beautiful Peach and Emerald gems from Malena’s vintage and Ashley Austin Boutique, our bridesmaid models donned pretty dresses from J.Crew and our bride model, Miss Delaware Rachel Baicco, wore a variety of dresses from $900-$3500 in price from Anastasia’s Bridal. We wanted to show couples what a beautiful marriage you can create with opposites-from the soft and romantic vintage peach flowers against the start industrial brick walls of the space to the pops of gold and emerald to add some subtle sophistication.

Rosie + Mike's Carnival Inspired Fete

Real Weddings, Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Today we have two vintage inspired weddings with very different approaches. First up is a Carnival inspired wedding shot by the talented Laura Novak. Mike (the groom) is a graphic designer, so he created all of the paper goods. There’s so much candy in this wedding! The use of bubblegum in their centerpieces was such a fun splash of color, which carried throughout the entire decor. Candy was everywhere!
