Ellis Preserve Wedding, Alessandra + Greg

Alessandra + Gregory married at St. Mary Magdalen Roman Catholic Church in Media and celebrated their nuptials at Finley Catering’s Ballroom at Ellis Preserve.  Greg is from France and their 2 hour cocktail party honored the French style of lengthy cocktail fun prior to the actual wedding reception.  The couple met through mutual friends at a Wilmington restaurant featuring a local band.  Greg waited patiently for Alessandra to finish dancing with other men so that he could finally ask her to dance.  They have been dancing together ever since!

Rebecca, these are stunning!! Love them. Beautiful balance of classic and modern! ~ Alessandra
