Description:

Find ornate opulence in the Brandywine Valley at Hotel Du Pont, an iconic Wilmington institution. This classic beauty bridges vivid history and tradition with contemporary elegance. The experienced wedding team will manage every aspect of your wedding, providing thoughtful, personalized service that fits your vision. Hotel Du Pont transports you by design to a sumptuous European locale — the 12-story Italian renaissance building was constructed in 1913 by French and Italian craftsmen. The gleaming Gold Ballroom features a French neoclassical design, with gilded rosettes, glittering chandeliers, and bas-reliefs of well-known female historical figures. The Federal-style du Barry Ballroom boasts white pillars, a parquet floor, and delicate sconces. Crowning the room is a shimmering chandelier imported from Yugoslavia.
