Greenville Country Club Surprise Firework Wedding Photography | Delaware Wedding Photographer | Margaret and Spenser

Margaret and Spenser, I just have so much love for these two!  When Margaret told me they were engaged on the solar eclipse, I already knew that these two had my heart.  They are two people who balance each other perfectly.  Margaret is caring, driven, spunky and incredibly sweet.  Spenser is silly, laid-back and one of the loveliest people on the planet.  Combine these two and they are unstoppable!   

When Margaret first reached out to me about their wedding plans, we realized that our grandparents are actually really good friends.  This gave our whole connection a sort of meant-to-be feel!  It was such an honor to be able to capture this time for a family that had meant so much to my grandparents.  

Margaret spent the morning of her wedding at her parent’s home in Greenville Delaware where she grew up.  She took her time with her bridesmaids to really soak in the day.  Taffeta Hair and Makeup Designs provided the beauty team and could not have done a more beautiful job!  Margaret’s bridal look was stunning.  After wrapping up hair and makeup, she and her mother went up to Margaret’s childhood bedroom where she put on her Kate McDonald Bridal gown from Gilded Bridal.  It fit her so perfectly!  It was equal parts romantic and modern!  She added a final touch- a cathedral length family veil.  It was absolutely stunning!

With that we left for Greenville Country Club where guests were taking their seats for the ceremony!  Margaret and Spenser were married in the beautiful gardens of the club in the shade of the trees.  They exchanged vows and rings before celebrating the rest of the evening with their friends and family!  It was a beautiful affair and there was still one more surprise!  At the end of the evening, Margaret and Spenser had planned to head out to the back lawn to get some photos with sparklers but their parents had other plans.  They orchestrated a beautiful surprise fireworks display!  It is unlike anything I had ever seen!  We were so close to the magnificent display!  It was a dream!  Check out this gorgeous day and the most amazing surprise fireworks!  Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Rubin!
