Fairy Tale Wedding

Monday was Abby and Dermot's wedding. The pictures tell the story better than I can. Simply put, it was magical-- an American girl meets an Irish lad, they court across the ocean, fall in love, he proposes in the pub where they first met and the wedding planning begins. The actual wedding took place at a gorgeous cathedral in Kilkenny. Abby's mom hand-painted the runner for the center aisle, Abby looked stunning in her dress and the Irish priest was a riot. During the ceremony, he talked about soccer and said "you may now kiss the bride" even though "that is only said in Hollywood, but since the bride is American it is allowed."

The reception took place back at the resort. Cocktails were served in front of the main manor house, with dinner served in the dining room of the lodge, which had been decorated in a woodlands theme. Everything from Irish dancers to a wedding cake with Marge and Homer Simpson bride and groom added fun flares to the evening.
