Cait & Bobby // Valentia Island Wedding  //  The Royal Valentia Hotel Wedding

With both grandparents natives of Valentia Island before emigrating to America, the ancestral ties Cait and her family have with the location provided a unique connection with place and time. A culmination of generations of love celebrated on one of the most westerly points of Ireland.

The mood to party and celebrate was infectious, high on love, high on life, Cait & Bobby's inspirational energy and generousness rocked Valentia Island.

Thank you for sharing those moments with me. <3

Jared &amp; Stephanie Elopement Wedding in Dingle // Hussy's Folly Tower // Dunquin Harbour - Ireland

Dingle, a small and charming port town sitting at the tip of a peninsula facing straight into the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest of Ireland. A landscape is known for its breathtaking scenery, of rising peaks, white sand beaches and the ever-present haunt of history.

Sean and Sharon // Vows Renewal // Cliffs of Moher // Corcomroe Abbey Elopement

An American duo with pretty big hearts and open for grand adventure. Their vows renewal was in one of my favorite places in Ireland, the Corcomroe Abbey in Clare is just a few miles from the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. Dreamy, right? But what’s the point of blabbering on when you can watch their experience and their big big love for yourself.

Niff & Peter // Adventure Session in Dingle // Dunquin Pier - Dingle //

Niff &amp; Peter // Adventure Session in Dingle // Dunquin Pier - Dingle //

- Dingle Poem -
“From main roads through the pass
and there, beneath,
as if a mountain gate over
a valley, lake or bay
a golden road
to visit a past,
Peig, the Blaskets,
basket of another age
of literature,
all writers on the island,
an embryo,
of Ireland, vacated
to new lands.

Or round Slea head,
a bleak peak,
a romance with Ryan's
daughter.

A corner, fluid
of memory and romance,
Now we are too
sophisticated,
beyond the word
of linking
mountain and sea,
and honesty.
dingle beautiful town.”
- Bernard Kennedy

Sara &amp; Gearóid // Alternative Wedding // Drummaan - Co. Clare

They dreamed a dream of being married in the Irish countryside, in the woods under the gentle dappled light of the swaying trees, next to the quietly flowing waters where Gearóid grew up, fishing in the softly murmuring currents. All the flowers, Sara's hair & make-up, were lovingly made by her bridesmaids and both families. It was a true family affair, a coming together of tribes for a celebration of love, music by Gearóid's Dad, the wedding celebrant their friend. Dreamy, right?
