Shooting a backyard wedding in Lewes Delaware (where I was born) on a day with pretty nice weather sounds like a fairytale, but this past Saturday, it was exactly what happened. Theresa & Ricky’s big day wasn’t just any Lewes Delaware wedding, because it had such a variety of carefully planned wedding details, awesome people, and a beautiful golden hour to take some portraits in.
Back when I shot Ricky & Theresa’s engagement photos in Lewes, they had told me a few of their fun wedding plans and ideas. I was super excited to be with them on their wedding day and see how those ideas had played out and how much of their wedding just felt like “them”.
This was one of those weddings where both families were so happy to see these two come together. From the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the wedding reception, there were wedding guests both young and old crying tears of joy! It was a photo field day! I don’t think I’ve shot so many family members crying in one wedding as this one!
Theresa & Ricky are huge music fans and that translated into the wedding in a lot of ways. The Beatles had tons of influence throughout the ceremony and reception. Also, one of my favorite music-related wedding details from Theresa & Ricky’s big day was Theresa’s surprise for ricky during the reception. She told me about the plan that morning while and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The plan was to hide Bob Dylan tickets in her garter so when Ricky went to retrieve the garter, he’d also get an extra surprise. Ricky was floored and it was awesome! Here are some of my favorite photos from Theresa & Ricky’s Lewes Delaware wedding below:
