Megan and Javi had a gorgeous Hotel DuPont wedding in Wilmington, DE. They started the day getting ready in separate rooms at Hotel Dupont. Javi, our handsome groom had a barber come in to provide fresh shaves and cuts for the groomsmen and Megan enjoyed some girl time with her bride tribe with a surprise appearance by Moose, the family dog.
After preparations, it was time for a few pictures with the bride tribe.
The groom and groomsmen shared some shots and cigars for their pictures.
The bride and groom exchanged gifts and had them sent to each other’s rooms as they did not want to see each other before the ceremony. Megan got Javi a Rolex watch and Javi got Megan some beautiful diamond earrings.
Since the bride and groom didn’t want to see each other prior to the wedding, we had time to do a very special father’s first look.
After the first look, we did separate bridal party pictures in the area around the hotel and the Hotel DuPont main lobby.
