Meet our lovely couple – Julie & Tom – who live in Maryland, USA. They wanted to tie the knot with a splendid destination wedding in Ireland and invited lots of their friends and family from all over the USA to come and join their celebrations. Read on to see how ‘They Celebrated An Amazing Wedding In A Rustic Irish Way’!
How Did They Meet?
“It all began in Spring 2011, we were both taking classes and playing lacrosse at the Community College of Baltimore County. Little did I know that guy was going to be my future husband. A few months later the sparks began to fly. After a game Tommy was being rushed to the hospital after suffering a big hit from an opponent. My friends – knowing I was interested in him – encouraged me to text him to make sure that he was ok. I’m glad I listened to them! “
“Tommy’s brother and his wife had planned to come to visit for the weekend. They wanted to visit Fort McHenry and little did I know that Tommy put them up to it. I asked his brother to take a picture of him and me by the harbour, but when I went to walk away, Tommy dropped to one knee and asked me to be his wife. It could not have been more romantic!”
The wedding festivities kicked off with an intimate rehearsal dinner followed by a welcome party in the local Ennis pub “Brogans” with live music, dance and fun into the early hours. Although rumour has it the bride was back at her hotel by midnight!
What was most important to the bride and groom was to experience a country setting and the rolling landscapes of Ireland on their wedding day. They wanted to create a most memorable day for their guests with lots of fun, dancing, great food & Guinness!
Opting for a Rustic Chic /Country style they decided to hold the reception in an Irish country pub on the Wild Atlantic Way, world famous “Vaughan’s Kilfenora”, Co. Clare.
While the beautiful ceremony had a much more formal setting in the splendid Cathedral in Ennis.
The theme was completed with a blush pink, pure white & ivory colour palette.
Incorporating loving memories of her Dad during her big day was important to the bride. She especially made sure to think about him as she laid a rose on the seat he would have sat in during the ceremony.
The stunning Bride wore an ivory gown with sparkling lace appliques at the bodice and a flowy skirt with train by Hailey Page.
Fabulous mismatched full-length dress in blush colours were worn by the bridesmaids.
The Groom and his groomsmen all matched in tailored blue suits with a hint of blush in their pocket squares and boutonnieres.
Food & Beverage
Dinner was held in an informal family style with a delicious ice cream cart & the stunning wedding cake adorned with blush florals for dessert.
The group danced the night away to 5-piece band followed by a DJ into the early hours.
We loved how They Celebrated An Amazing Wedding In A Rustic Irish Way and wish Julie & Tom a lifetime of happiness, joy and laughter!
