I felt a connection with McCaela and Joe from the very start, and was excited to be a part of this intimate Irish elopement.
I couldn’t have asked for more upon hearing their special plans for the day, or their location.
It was very clear how in love they were, and how special this relationship was.
They chose to get married in their hometown of Boston about a month before they came to Ireland,
to exchange their vows in Roundwood House – a truly magical place,
ideal for small, intimate, emotional ceremonies. And of course, their ceremony didn’t disappoint on any of those levels!
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house (including my own) as the pair exchanged their vows,
and I truly felt as though I was a part of something magical. The warm, inviting atmosphere allowed everyone to relax,
feel comfortable, and enjoy the most touching moments between McCaela and Joe, and I’m truly honoured I was able to be a part of it.
