This wedding cake was made for Vicky and Ruben as winners of the Philadelphia Perfect Wedding Guide Desserts by Dana Giveaway. Here is what Vicky had to say about her experience:

EVERYBODY at the wedding loved the cake, they even came back for seconds! Some of the mansion staff were swooning over the cake, they even said it was the most beautiful and meticulously crafted wedding cake they’ve ever seen. The design was impeccable, and most of all, the taste was divine! All flavors were so good!

Winery, Wine, and a Wedding

“The first kiss and the first glass of wine are the best.”
― Marty Rubin

Nassau Valley Sam Ellis in front of stone

What is more pleasurable, comfortable, aesthetic, and quaint than an intimate outdoor wedding at a winery. In Delaware, you can find that place at Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes, Delaware. The Garden House makes a sweet backdrop as Julie and Corey exchange their vows. The vibrant old world colors of an English garden in the bouquet and the boutonniere pop against the rustic stone and brick of the winery walkways and buildings. Nassau Valley Vineyards makes some fine wines, so here is a toast to the happy couple, and to the photographer, Sam Ellis, for his wonderful captures!

A Grand Wedding Day from Nemours Gardens to The Waterfall

What can be more delicious than a perfect wedding day with the opportunity for photos in the beautiful and grand Nemours Mansion Gardens which is only open to full time employees of the grounds. GRAND is a great adjective to describe the wedding of Jessica and Mike, from the resplendent St Elizabeth’s church in Wilmington to the sumptuous new The Waterfall reception venue. It couldn’t have been better captured and documented than by Delaware photographer, Kerry Harrison. Congratulations Jessica and Mike, much happiness.

There is an incredible sweetness captured by Creative Image Associates Photography for this Delaware beach wedding of Lexy and Drew. A throw back feel to a time when weddings focused on  the bride and groom and their loving future.  The bride wore her grandmother’s dress, which was also worn by her mom. Lavender represents  refinement, grace, and elegance which fits this glowing bride. The groom glows as well! Congratulations to Lexy and Drew.

Capturing Love Beyond Words


Foschi Orner maids reaction in church

Capturing Love is what is being served in this Morning Cup of Wedding, and it is captured so well by Photography by Foschi of Wilmington, Delaware.  Pictures are worth, in so many cases, what words can’t even say. The faces at the wedding of Mr and Mrs Glenn show so much genuine love and endearment that goes beyond words, and that capture is priceless!

Pink roses popped against the royal blue gowns worn by the loving and so lovely bridesmaids, and maybe one “not so lovely” bridesmaid (see photo below)

Wouldn’t any wife want to be gazed at unknowingly by their husband like this groom is gazing at his bride.

Foschi Orner Groom looking at bride

Love the emotions captured on these faces.

The ceremony of Mr and Mrs Glenn was followed by beautiful sunny day for photos at Concordville Inn.

Never, never forget to have FUN at your wedding!

Pink roses represent poetic romance.

And, I know, they will live happily ever after!

Hearts Race at Heritage Shores

Morning Cup of Wedding has a great wedding to inspire your fourth of July weekend. As most of us know, America’s favorite way to celebrate is loud and proud, but fireworks aren’t only the perfect way to end a day of barbecuing. Jenna and Frank filled the night sky as an explosive symbol of their love off of Heritage Shores beautiful course. I love how The Beards – Photography mentioned the spectacle on their blog:

“I love the way fireworks make your heart race a little faster! It’s such a memorable way to celebrate the end of an incredible day.”

Delaware Perfect Wedding Guide hopes that your weekend is as memorable as Jenna and Frank’s Wedding! To learn more about a wedding at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville, DE Click Here!



Summer is for Fun

We’re almost to the holiday weekend and Morning Cup of Wedding wants to pack a little Fourth of July fun into your hump day. We all know besides watermelon and the grill what really makes a Delaware Independence Day is the beach! Dover Rent-All Tents & Events got some great photos from Austin and Kate of their summer wedding at Cullen Street Beach in Rehoboth.

My favorite detail about this wedding has to be the exit ceremony where, instead of rice, several beach balls were tossed back and forth between the guests as the bride and groom exited to a very fun photo shoot with their wedding party.

With the great lighting and dance floor set up by Dover Rent-All Tents & Events, the back yard of a Dewey Beach beach house became an amazing reception venue with a gorgeous sunset view.

Intimate Wedding-Deep Connections

Hagley Museum and Library is a wonderful venue offering a lot of choices for great photography, but nothing can make a photograph like the bond between family and friends at an intimate wedding. And, in this case, a picture by Fantail Photography, is definitely worth more than a thousand words. Catch the love, the fun, the comfortable humor, the elegant portraits and the beauty of Hagley from the wedding of Steph and Patrick. Congratulations and much happiness!

“Intimacy,though part of many close relationships, is not synonymous with with love or exclusivity. Intimate friends are people who like each other, enjoy each other’s company,
go out of their way to help each other, and are concerned for each other’s welfare”.
