What do you love most about each other?

I love that Ross has a goofy/funny side and makes me laugh every day. I love how he is always trying to better himself and works hard at everything he does. I love that Ross supports me and challenges me.

I love how Hilary is always looking out for me and is there to take care of me. I love how Hilary doesn’t need to put on makeup to look beautiful. And I love how Hilary always pushes me to be my best.

How they chose St. Anthony’s and Hotel Dupont for their wedding

Both of our families are Catholic so we knew we were going to get married in a Catholic Church. Finding our reception location was more difficult. We looked at over 15 venues before finding Hotel DuPont. It was different than all of the other venues and had a lot of architectural detail. We both live in Delaware and it is an easy location for all of our out of town guests – close to the airport but still reasonable for family to drive.

    What an amazing wedding venue at the Hotel Dupont! That ballroom is incredible! You took some beautiful wedding photographs of that couple. They look genuinely happy and in love. I particularly love the little quotes you got from the bride and groom to go along with their photos.
