Melissa and Eddie’s Wentworth by the Sea Wedding

Melissa and Eddie’s Wentworth by the Sea Wedding

I’ve got some great images to share with you from Melissa and Eddie’s wedding!  These two are gorgeous, and perfect for each other, so we were excited for their wedding.  Plus, they were having their reception at one of our favorite venues: The Wentworth by the Sea hotel in New Castle.

Here’s one of the least known facts about the Wentworth by the Sea: beyond the elegance and the great service are 3 ballrooms that hold some of the most fun parties ever thrown.  Sure, Wentworth couples enjoy great meals at the start of their receptions, but then they know how to party.  Melissa and Eddie’s crowd – they took it up several notches and turned the Wentworth ballroom into a  rave. 

So now you know, Melissa and Eddie’s wedding night ended with every guest on the dance floor, and DJ Greg Pic whipping the crowd into a frenzy.  Before that, a church ceremony, a stop at the beach, and some romantic images at the Wentworth marina. 

Lucia and I started our day at the bride’s family home where she was getting ready, and so the images start there, with Melissa and the bridesmaids in robes.

I always love it when I can add the bride’s parents in the background, particularly in their own house.

A good wedding has a lot of contributors. These are a few of the people I know that helped make this happen.
