Ah, Ireland. Home to shamrocks, rolling green hillsides, and really, really pretty weddings. At least if Siobhan and Ciaran’s wedding is any indicator. Siobhan says, Our main desire for our wedding day was to create a relaxed, enjoyable, and entertaining day for both us and our guests. Our favorite memory of the day has to be standing in the hotel gardens in the unusual scorching heat, sipping Champagne and listening to soft jazz music while various entertainers mingled with our guests. Now that the scene is set, let’s take a look at the rest of Przemek Macias’ photos…

Siobhan’s bouquet recipe: peonies and mini roses with ample cascading greenery to finish it off.

The entertainment for the evening included tenors, clowns, impersonators, a band, and a DJ. So fun!

Some advice from the bride… One thing we would have changed was our decision not to have a videographer. We both hate being filmed and were nervous it would make some of our guests feel uneasy too. However, there were parts of the day, such as our young sons walking up the aisle, that we should have allowed to be filmed. My advice to other couples in the same situation is to hire a videographer on a minimal basis, or ask family and friends with good recording devices to capture these moments for you.

Cheers, you two! We wish you many more happy years together!

Hey there, cakies. We’re ending the week with a gorgeous wedding that comes to us all the way from Slovakia. When we were sorting through the photos from Peter & Veronika, our jaws just dropped when we saw Jarka in her wedding dress. The delicate buttons down the back, that dramatic train… it’s literally a gown fit for a princess. But let’s not forget about the castle-like setting and the harp music playing softly in the background. Because it wasn’t just the dress that made Jarka feel like royalty…

Jarka changed into a second dress for the reception. Just as pretty, but a little easier to dance in!

Jarka says, I can’t even try to name the best moment of the day. Was it when we woke up in the morning and knew it was all beginning? Was it when my parents saw me for the first time and my mum had tears in her eyes? Was it when I was walking down the aisle with my proud dad and saw the handsome man waiting there before me? Was it our first kiss? Our first dance? It was all of these moments and more. It was whole day together, made up of lots of puzzle pieces of marvelous single moments and overall atmosphere.

Beautifully put! We wish you two all the best, J + M!

Heather + Hull have such style and grace. And while their wedding is as romantic as they come, they really are just a down to earth couple who love to go fishing, garden, swoon over fancy classic cars, and scour flea markets for rare antique finds. FYI, all the vases, centerpieces, table number frames and other pretty details you’ll see in a sec, came from their hunts together. But also, like a few of the couple’s we’ve featured on the blog before, they also were in the middle of buying and renovating their first home while planning a wedding. Don’t know how they did it, but photographer, Stefanie Kapra, captured it all so beautifully!

Here’s a nice money-saving tip for ya: We decided to get married on a Friday, which worked out perfectly since most people had a long weekend because of the Fourth of July weekend! We also decided to get ready in our own home instead of a hotel or somewhere that would cost extra money. It meant a lot more to us to be in our house which we crazily lovingly finished renovating the week before! Plus the lighting was fantastic!

A great tip if you’re thinking of having a little photo booth area set up with an instant film/polaroid camera: Our photo wall would’ve been more of a success if we had assigned someone to take the photos using the instant camera. Most people used their phone camera, so we didn’t end up getting a lot of the instant photos to put in our guest book! Also, making a sign with an Instagram hashtag for our wedding would’ve been an easy way to corral everyone’s candid photos.

Those fireworks kind of don’t look real, right? What a magical way to end the day! Congratulations Heather + Hull!
