Rockwood Park wedding preparations of Christine & Jason|Wilmington, Delaware

Christine & Jason chose the gorgeous grounds of Rockwood Park for their wedding. Christine is a Wilmington native and Jason’s family lives in Pennsylvania. They wanted to have an outdoor wedding and this proved to be a perfect location.  In their search for a wedding photographer (from their home in California) they found me, and after signing the photo agreement, had it laying around their house. One of her bridesmaids noticed the logo and it turns out I had met Joanna the previous year – when I photographed her sister’s wedding in upstate New York. Totally crazy coincidence!
