A nautical themed wedding on the Delaware River … very fitting for a beautiful summer day.

Venue – Pen Ryn Mansion / Belle Voir Manor
Flowers – London Florist
Ceremony – Olde Church of St. Andrew

We started at Lauren and Joe’s house …

Luckily, we didn’t need any of the tips mentioned on the survival handbook, but you can never be too prepared …

… apparently, not everybody is worried …

In keeping up with the nautical theme, Joe’s tie featured some cute whales. Loved it.

When we arrived at Lauren’s place, the flower girl went up the stairs repeating “The picture takers are here … the picture takers are here …”. It was way too cute.

I’m not sure who’s mirroring who: Lauren the bridesmaid or vice versa … either way, it makes for a great picture.

The ring and rosary was from Lauren’s grandma’ …I loved this ray of sunshine on Lauren’s hand holding the rosary from her grandmother. Almost like a divine sign.

The ceremony was held at the beautiful Olde Church of St. Andrew in Newtown.

The flower girls and ring bearer always steal the show ….

… only for a moment …

At the end of the ceremony, Joe and Lauren got to ring the church bells. I’m not sure who enjoyed it most: the kids or the adults 🙂

More beautiful details from their nautical theme … remember the cute whales from Joe’s tie? … they make a great wedding cake top

While the girls were having fun ….

… the guys were enjoying a game of Bocce …

Based on their entrance, the reception promised to be a lot of fun …

… and it was …

All the single girls lined up for the bouquet toss …

… but the chandelier got it 🙂 … girls 0 – chandelier 1

Joe helping Lauren with her shoes …

… and being rewarded for his work …

OK, one more picture of the beautiful couple …

Thank you again Lauren and Joe for allowing me to capture this beautiful day.

  • Bogdan - The shot with the dogs takes the cake! (no pun intended). Really like your kind of coverage Valentin. A bit unexpected and fresh.


  • Valentin - Hi Bogdan,

    Thank you for the kind words. The shot with the dogs was taken by the second photographer (he was with the guys getting ready that day).


  • Lauren Eble - Jean,

    Just looked at these for the thousandth time. Can’t express how absolutely thrilled I was with the results ( though I’ll try to in my reviews!) The pictures, the layouts are all amazing. Can’t wait to get the book. Thanks for all your patience regarding that; it was so hard to decide if we want to change anything because the layout was beautiful but there were so many other pictures we loved too!


  • Valentin - THANK YOU Lauren! I’m so happy to hear you are thrilled with your images. I did promise you that I will make it very difficult for you to select the images 🙂

    Thank you again and have a great holiday weekend!
