Fiona and Paul – Ireland vs. Italy – June 18th, 2012 – as the European Soccer Championships approach this spring, it’s the season for wedding blogs! The bride and groom both proud of their heritage, from Ireland and Italy respectively, will both by cheering for their native nations, as they play one another in this year’s tournament.
Rachel and I are very fortunate enough to have many wedding clients who have been friends with us over the past several years. As many of them are starting to tie the knot, we have been blessed that they not only want us at the wedding, but they also want us to capture their special day. This was the case with Fiona and Paul, a dynamic, on-the-go couple that work hard, but more importantly play hard too! Their passion for life is only eclipsed by their love and respect for one another, as was witnessed by Rachel and our good friend and colleague, Rick O’brien, who assisted Rach and documenting this wonderful day.
Salute! Paul and his family starting the day off with BANG

and when you have around 400 people not only celebrating the marriage of two of their favourite people, but st. patty’s day as well, you stop taking pictures and you join them in the celebration!
congratulations to the two of you; we love you and are so happy for you. i’m really disappointed that i missed the big event, but i am in love with the pics.
