“Maybe we found love right where we are” – Ed Sheeran

This wedding is very near and dear to my heart. Not only did one of my longest and dearest friends marry the love of her life, but me and my husband and all of our friends got to travel over to Ireland to see their love story unfold. The week in Ireland was filled with so many memories from seeing the beauty of the country, to hanging out with the locals at the pub, and spending time with friends and family from near and far. They wed in the garden of their Sea View Villa, a private home in the town of Dalkey. This home was GORGEOUS! Shanna wore a KittyChen Couture dress, paired with a fur wrap, giving her the perfect vintage glam look. Guests gathered for cocktails while overlooking the cliff side onto the water while upstairs Shanna put her wedding dress on. As Shanna descended from the stairs of the home, Jason’s smile when he got a glance of his new wife to be gave me a little tear as I captured the moment. Following the beautiful ceremony guests were whisked off to the Royal Marine hotel in Dun Laoghaire. The bride and groom were picked up by a Silver Wraith II Rolls Royce Convertible, one of the only 4 door convertible’s ever made. We strolled through the town, making some photos stops, until we arrived at the Royal Marine were Shanna and Jason were welcomed with champagne and the red carpet into their reception. This wedding was truly a love fairy tale! I am absolutely honored to be able to share Shanna and Jason’s love story through these images. Sláinte!
