All that is running through my brain right now is pretty, pretty, holy-cow PRETTY. It could be lack of coffee or more importantly the explosion of greatness that is this Dublin wedding. Photographed by Moments & Memories by Magda Lukas with a dab of the loveliest hand-painted paper goods by Rifle Paper Co., enough designer wedding attire to satiate even the most die hard tulle lovers and a cake. Oh the cake. That beauty was crafted by  Perfectionist Confectionist and it’s a whimsical delight…just like the wedding it came from. Enjoy all the beauty this Dublin wedding has to offer in the FULL gallery.

And how about the film by the crazy talented Brian of Shark Pig to round out the festivities? That man knows how to work a videocamera and the proof is in this Irish pudding…

From the bride… Paul and I had a wonderful wedding in Dublin at The Village at Lyons on July 11, 2011. I’m a fashion strategy student in Amsterdam, so I was quite concerned about my wedding style. Thank God that in Ireland we have so many good wedding retailers, but I selected some American vendors as well. The ceremony was in a very bright, open restaurant at The Village at Lyons. The French Touch made an arch with many beautiful peonies for the ceremony. I wore a Vera Wang dress with silver Roger Vivier shoes. Paul was wearing a Prada suit with a black agnes.b bow tie. We arranged for jazz music to be played by The Avoca String Quartet during cocktail time. We had a mushroom cake from Perfectionist Confectionist. One of the most lovely things was we had invitation cards and menus made by Rifle Paper Co. The wedding band was amazing. They played jazz and for the first song, which they had practiced especially for us, they played “Bad Things,” the theme song for the TV series True Blood. At midnight, we released colorful lanterns with the guests that had well-wishes for a happy future for us written on them. It felt so peaceful and complete.
