Emma and Richie’s Perfect Dewey Beach Wedding Venue

This time around, it wasn’t the bride who reached out to Elevee Events for help, it was the Mother Of The Bride!

Since she is a good friend of mine and a local entrepreneur, I was more than happy to help her with her task: assisting in the planning of her daughter’s wedding while she and her fiancé finished their senior year at West Point. Talk about a busy family!

I got to meet the handsome groom 14 months in advance of the wedding. We took advantage of Richie’s free time to search for the perfect Dewey Beach wedding venue. The groom and his future mother-in-law took a ton of pictures for the bride, but their first impressions were equally as important. Upon walking into Ivy – our 5th and final location for the day – mom and the groom were sold. That is, assuming the bride was on board.

Emma took one look at the photos and heard her fiancé explain the venue, and immediately approved. And not a moment too soon; West Point graduation day was fast approaching, and the happy couple was thrilled to spend their big day celebrating! Their wedding day became a a commemoration of not only the bride and groom, but of their closest friends’ graduation, and possibly one of the last times they’d see everyone before they were all deployed to their future assignments and new jobs.

I planned the wedding with late night emails to the bride and groom, calls from mom when she wasn’t running her businesses, and lots of to-do lists sent to the busy couple. Two weeks before the big day, we were still tying up loose ends. Fortunately, thanks to years of experience, those loose ends were tied up fast and the day was executed without a single flaw.

Our planning couldn’t have been more perfect; the amazing weather led to some amazing sunset photos!
