Hotel duPont and Nemours Estate Wedding // Wilmington, DE

Things I will always adore: best friends in love. Aubrey and Luke couldn’t fit the bill better! Aftering dating for 2.5 years, these two finally became Mr. + Mrs. Metaxas on a beautiful October day. Their Hotel duPont and Nemours Estate wedding was everything they dreamed of and more. It’s one of my favorite venues, and it was perfect for their elegant fall day.

Aubrey and Luke met on Hinge, and their first date at Dockery’s led tot hem talking for three hours! Fast forward a few years, and Luke set the plan in motion to propose. He surprised her with a trip to Charleston where they met. After taking a walk to the area they had their first date, Luke led Aubrey to a spot where candles and roses were set up. Luke asked Aubrey to marry him, and she said yes!


Once they were both done getting ready, we all went to Nemours Estate for their first look. Nemours Estate is one of the most beautiful estates I’ve been to in Delaware! The gardens are modeled after Versailles and made for the perfect backdrop. I couldn’t wait to see Luke’s reaction to Aubrey. It ended up being one of the BEST reactions I’ve seen in a long time!

Afterwards, we did a few lovely couples portraits before diving into wedding party portraits! I’m obsessed with their Nemours Estate photos. It’s so elegant and fits the vibe of their wedding to a T!

Once we got back to Hotel duPont, it was time to get married! Seeing them finally become husband and wife was so endearing. I knew it was long awaited for them and their families. Everyone couldn’t contain their joy for Aubrey and Luke and it carried into their reception too! We had the most incredible time documenting this perfect day for them. Enjoy some favorites from their Hotel duPont and Nemours Estate wedding!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

"The best (esp if you're awkward in photos)"

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!


- Bianca + Kyle

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

- Casey + Kofi

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
