Bob and Tom's Elegant Hotel du Pont Wedding

Bob and Tom had been together for almost twenty-five years when they decided to celebrate their anniversary by getting married. When we asked them later when they got engaged, they told us they made the decision on Saturday, November 2nd - 18 days before they would eventually walk down the aisle together.

Upon our initial consultation, we knew immediately that we would be a great fit. Bob and Tom envisioned an elegant evening, celebrating with their family and friends. Their wedding color palette was to include autumn colors. Other than setting the tone, they asked Chief Event Planner Randi Martin and Creative Director Francesca Staffieri to come up with the design of their wedding.

After accompanying them on a venue search, Bob and Tom decided on the Hotel DuPont - a landmark, elegant hotel in Wilmington, Delaware. With the venue chosen, Francesca and Randi got to work on finding the other professionals who would bring Bob and Tom's vision to life. And, the photographer who would help us record their memories of their day was the hugely talented Paul Roebuck of Unique Concepts Studio.

For the look of the tablescapes, Trilogy Event Design Concierge member Papertini created gorgeous centerpieces for both the reception as well as cocktail hour. She took care of our grooms with beautiful mango calla lily boutonnieres, and appointed their ceremony space with two arrangements that their guests could not stop talking about.

Creative Director Francesca Staffieri designed all of the day-of stationery that helped tie the overall look of the wedding together. Mounted ceremony programs were handed out to each guest prior to the ceremony, while cards in which Bob and Tom thanked each of their guests for helping them celebrate were placed at each table setting.

We were lucky to have the talented string quartet by  Shaw Strings on hand to play throughout cocktail hour and accompany our grooms' nephew who sang beautifully at the start of their ceremony. Their ceremony was personal, funny, loving, and moving as officiated by Bob's brother, James. After the ceremony, Bob and Tom wanted a group photo on the staircase leading out of the ceremony space before everyone went to the reception ballroom.

Shaw Strings continued to play throughout dinner before Synergetic Sound and Lighting DJ Kyle took over, getting Bob and Tom and all of their guests onto the dance floor.

Bob and Tom: you were both an absolute joy to work with and we were so happy that you asked Trilogy Event Design to be a part of your day! We wish you all the happiness in the world, and all the best in this new chapter of your lives together.
