a magical destination wedding for a beautiful florida couple in ireland

For the past year, I've been really looking forward to meeting a young couple from Florida who were coming to Ireland to get married. Lacey had contacted me by email after finding me on the internet, and proceeded to tell me about her destination wedding in Ireland. She could be a destination wedding planner herself, as her wedding at the magical Coolcarrigan in Coill Dubh, County Kildare, was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever seen. And the coolest thing about the wedding was they came to Ireland with the members of their closest family (10 people and a baby) on a bus tour, and used one of their free days to get married! Look out for their engagement shoot at the Guinness Storehouse in the upcoming days. And to Lacey and Chris, congratulations and wishing you all the happiness and health in the future!

***Interesting note: The Irish texts on the walls of the church at Coolcarrigan were chosen by Douglas Hyde who was a family friend and the 1st President of Ireland and the founder of the Gaelic League.

  1. Just perfect - the way a wedding should be in my opinion, all about the love and minus the fru fru excess, sigh...

  2. You are so right Lily! It was simply magical in that the guests were their closest members, and the beauty of the private setting. I heard the wind blowing through the trees and bird singing when I was shooting the ceremony and I felt like it could have been a different time.

  3. A gorgeous intimate wedding Lisa. A beautiful bride and handsome groom. Love small weddings! Beautiful pics as always!

  4. What great photos Lisa and I'm delighted Lacey feels she made the right decisions on all aspects of her wedding day! Michael

  5. Aww, so many cute photos! Love her style - so elegant! They look so happy! Great job!
