We visited Cuba in February with Greg and Donna. A fascinating place, which we’d love to show you, but with all these weddings who has time to edit and post vacation photos?

Arran and Orla Got Married

April 18, 2009

DUBLIN     After a solid week of drenching, the sun broke free on Saturday morning and stayed warm and shining all day long. A special dispensation from the weather gods for Arran and Orla? Many thought so. For us, it just added to the beauty and enjoyment of this wonderful day.

On a beautiful day, on a beautiful island, surrounded by trees and wildflowers with the city in the background, Laura and Steve celebrated their marriage in a completely unique ceremony.

How often do you see the bride and groom walk up the aisle together?

All evidence of Laura’s and Steve’s individuality, and all lending to the creation of an absolutely magical day.
