The Dudley Mansion is opening it’s doors for weddings in 2010 and we are so excited for the future events we will be photographing there! This place is ahhhh-mazing! We were surprised that such a jewel existed in Wilmington. The house itself is breathtaking. Every inch is perfectly decorated in a way that brings you back to the South of the 1800s. Pembroke and Sarah Jones were former owners of the mansion and they would throw lavish parties there, even presidents attended their events. Because of the mansion and the parties thrown there eventually the phrase “keeping up with the Joneses,” was coined. Seriously. This is “the” house that started that saying!
We were thrilled at the opportunity to photograph the mansion and grounds. We had some lovely models to pose for us too. The backyard gardens are spacious and beautifully manicured, and would make a stunning backdrop to any wedding or reception. There is definitely no other venue in town like the Dudley.
So to our future brides, secretly planning the tiny details of your big day while waiting for him to put a ring on that finger, please oh pretty please, get married at The Dudley!
A huge thanks to Allison and Alex our models and everyone else that contributed to the shoot, you all are the bee’s knees!
The ever gracious gals at Fountaine Bridals gave Allison an uber chic gown to wear.
Makeup was done by N Salo Salon, and I know from experience that they give killer hair cuts there as well!
Elisha Wendt owner of Lavish Boutique Salon, styled Allison’s gorgeous red locks.
