Robert and Devan
@ The Wentworth by the Sea

The Wentworth Wedding of Robert and Devan

Devan and Robert had all the ingredients for a fabulous wedding and an amazing party, and you’ll see in these images that everything worked perfectly for them. I kind of think there should be a master recipe for a great wedding, and since I’ve never seen one, I’m writing the cookbook right now!

Recipe and Ingredients for a Wonderful Wedding

  • Great Venue – They chose the Wentworth by the Sea in Newcastle
  • Supportive Families – Probably the most important thing on this list. The Littlefields and the Cooksons were amazing.
  • Wedding Party that will do anything to help – we think Devan’s girls should get trophies they were so good.
  • Super Fun Couple – This one’s non-negotiable, if you’re not fun, you’re wedding will never be stellar. Devan and Robert – totally fun.
  • Weather – Wind and rain are always challenging. It was so sunny on October 22nd Robert almost couldn’t keep his eyes open.
  • Party – It takes a good band or a great DJ to keep your friends on the dance floor all night, and then you need to have friends that dance! Check.
  • Decor – A plain vanilla room won’t do. Kathy from Jardiniere had the prettiest flowers on crystal pedastals, and the DJ Billy lit the walls of the Grand ballroom pretty colors.
  • Fun and Creative Photographers – Hey, it’s my recipe. Did you really think I’d leave myself off of it?

Check out my favorite pictures, and when you or someone you know plans a wedding, remember this recipe!

The view of the Wentworth Marina from Devan's room
The view of the Wentworth Marina from Devan’s room. The marina suites are 1000% the best place for brides to get ready at the Wentworth by the Sea. They have more room than the hotel rooms, a lot more privacy, and you won’t have to walk through the hotel lobby. Plus, look at this view!

No, this was not photographed during the song YMCA. Good guess. Uncle Bill was just really happy for the couple. It was that kind of night.

bride on dance floor
Devan’s brother John throwing down on the dance floor. Also, Dylani appears to be reading notes she wrote on her palm, and a guy we can’t see is making the Devil’s horns with his fingers. I swear those horns weren’t there when I selected this image for the website. Creepy.
purple lights on dance floor
This is what the party felt like all night. Spinning, laughing, drinking, hands clapping, and whenever you looked, Robert and Devan were having another moment together.

Windows and mirrors line the Grand ballroom, and have these very regal curtains. The glass is frosted, giving us this impressionistic photo of Devan and Robert at the end of the night.
