US couple Christine and Mike chose Ireland as the location for their intimate destination wedding, kicking off with a personality-filled ceremony at Dublin City Hall and epic portrait session with photographer White Cat Studio, followed by dinner and drinks at F.X. Buckley. Let’s take a look at this gorgeousness!
I totally admire Christine’s statement bridal look, which comprises a hand-painted pink wedding dress by US designer Chantel Lauren, her Grandma’s shoes and an incredibly cool wide-brimmed felt hat; her daughter’s matching blue ensemble, and the groom’s bolo tie and cowboy boot combo. The bride also chose a bold, oversized bouquet featuring blush pink roses, vibrant protea and lots of lush greenery!
The couple prioritized food, drink and photography, along with spoiling their guests rotten! They wanted the guests to have a really amazing vacation, which included lots of sightseeing. They kept their Dublin city hall ceremony simple, including a hand-fasting ritual and live music. Christine and Mike just couldn’t resist Dublin city hall. The historical aspect of the City Hall was what really drew them to inquire about it. Mike is a really big history buff, and Christine is a sucker for some good architecture.
The highlight of the wedding for this pair was having their nearest and dearest join them for their Irish adventure! White Cat Stuido created some truly breathtaking portraits for the couple, and after the drinks reception, the couple and their guests headed to F.X. Buckley on Pembroke St. for dinner, drinks and speeches. When the big day was over, the couple spent some time travelling around Ireland. Destination wedding equals automatic honeymoon!
