Dream Irish Wedding.Shannon Ireland Sole Irish representative at New York event
Shannon, Ireland, Thursday, 29 October 2009:
Ireland's premier wedding and event planner, Michelle McDermott, founder of Dream Irish Wedding ( www.dreamirishwedding.com), a strategic alliance of three of the most renowned and celebrated Irish wedding venues - Adare Manor Hotel, the Lodge at Doonbeg Golf Club, and Knappogue Castle - has been invited to participate in the Wedding Salon New York on Monday, 2 November. Dream Irish Wedding will showcase three of the most breathtakingly beautiful and spectacular locations for celebrating special occasions, including weddings, anniversaries and engagements.
"It's an honor to have been invited by Tatiana Byron to showcase what Ireland has to offer at the Wedding Salon. We have assembled three of the most renowned and trusted luxury fairytale wedding venues in Ireland, each perfectly equipped to turn any occasion into the most memorable, each offering that something extra special, but most importantly, each sited in an area of Ireland which has so much to offer the entire bridal or celebratory party," says Michelle.
A wedding consultant since 2001, but drawing on years of experience in the hospitality sector, Mc Dermott has been attracting an increasing number of brides from the US to Ireland. Her skills at co-ordinating and planning every last detail of a special occasion have been described as 'translating vision with grace and professionalism'. US brides have traveled from New York, San Francisco, Texas, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, California, Georgia, Carolina, Colorado, Wisconsin and Boson to avail of her organizational and creative talent knowing that she can cater for the requirements of any number of guests, from 2 to 502, and can spend up to 300 hours organizing the perfect wedding. While many are second and third generation Irish, for some it's the pure fairytale of an Irish castle, the green lush pastures and the fun that is the attraction.

"Fifty per cent of my clients have never been to Ireland before choosing it as their preferred wedding location. The long-lost connection is generally on the bride's side; this ignites the desire to say 'I do' in an Irish castle venue," says Michelle.
Exhibiting at the Wedding Salon, a first for McDermott and her newly-created brand, Dream Irish Wedding, is an exciting venture, which she says will place the West of Ireland in the 'highly recommended' wedding destination locations in the world. They have already been spotted by Jonathan Epstein of Celebrated Experiences who has included them in his distinctive offerings to his select and expansive client base. NASCAR reporter with ESPN and ABC, Shannon Spake, who celebrated her wedding in Adare Manor Hotel in 2008, was so enchanted by her experience that she has become the face of Dream Irish Wedding.

Dream Irish Wedding parties generally spend between five days and two weeks soaking up the atmosphere of Ireland before returning to the US. While most parties visit for the fairytale wedding, the location is often the preferred choice for proposals, intimate honeymoons or anniversaries.
"I am energized by the invitation to attend this prestigious New York show," says Michelle. "Not alone will I be in highly esteemed company, but I will have the opportunity to talk directly to brides-to-be, to let them meet me in person, and to demonstrate how I, through Dream Irish Wedding, can orchestrate the perfect, stress-free and unforgettable event for them in a fairytale Irish venue. Our passion for perfection and our meticulous attention to detail ensures that dreams really can become a reality. From seamless airport transfers to check out, our highly-rated event management skills enable all our clients to relax and take full advantage of the entire Shannon region of Ireland, all the while knowing that there is an expert team looking after them."
During her visit to New York, Michelle will demonstrate her leadership qualities, her ability to forward plan, her attention to detail, the attributes of her three outstanding venues and the facilities on offer in their respective locations.
