I'm THRILLED to bring you the professional pictures of the Fehnel wedding from June 26, 2010. I've known Jess for about a year and half and her beautiful summer wedding was so perfect for her and Brian. The ceremony and reception took place at the Delaware Center for Horticulture in Wilmington, DE and the couple added so many amazing personal details. All of which were captured by Clair Pruett Photography's photographer Dan who was a pleasure to work with and definitely had a passion for his work. Now, back to those amazing details.
Jess & Brian are a sweet, laid back couple who enjoy their life in Wilmington with their adorable dog Cleo, working on their house, and hanging out with friends. The DCH is a perfect setting for this "green" couple with a gorgeous backdrop of the center's gardens. (I wouldn't expect anything else from Jess, who was voted one of the best recyclers in Delaware last year!) The ceremony was held under the pavilion behind the DCH. Although it was a hot, HOT day, the guests stayed cool inside the DCH lobby until ceremony time and the thoughtful couple had iced bottles of water in buckets waiting for the guests outside of the pavilion.
The reception was held inside the DCH's main room and guests were free to wander around the whole facility; the gardens, the reception room, the lobby, the art gallery, and the front patio of the DCH which is encased by a high brick wall giving events privacy without boxing anyone in. The lobby had the bar as well as two favor stations; a table of hand-made limoncello bottles from the groom's aunt and potted plants grown by the groom himself along with gift bags to carry everything. Jess & Brian also had boxes ready for their delicious SAS Cupcakes cupcake tower which guests could choose to take away as a 3rd favor. The dinner buffet was set up in the art gallery and the food & service from Wilmington's Gallagher & Gallagher Catering was phenomenal. DJ Noj of Anson Audio kept the guests happy and on their feet all night long as evidenced by the pictures below (hello conga line!). The whole day and night were full of love, family, and friends. I saw Jess & Brian a few weeks ago, and marriage definitely looks good on them! Congrats again Mr. &Mrs. Fehnel!
