I grew up in a college bball town (go SU!) so while I've always loved March Madness, it wasn't until SMP got involved did my own manic really begin. We shared our favorite weddings and you, our amazing readers, narrowed them down week by week and today we reveal the winner. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's spend the morning in Ireland where wedding fantasies come true. With Peaches & Mint behind the lens and Pearl & Godiva working their design magic, our 4th place is a can't miss!

From Pearl & Godiva... Many couples dream of an intimate wedding, sharing these magical moments with just their nearest and dearest, on a day which reflects their own personal style from start to finish. We were so honoured to make this a reality for Grace and Paul, which took place in the spell-bounding environs of the Crom Castle on Lough Erne in Northern Ireland.

Crom Castle is an enchanting historic castle which sits beside Lough Erne, the perfect backdrop for an exquisite wedding. This waterside kingdom was a huge inspiration for the day, given that guests took a boat ride along Lough Erne to join the couple celebrate their their wedding ceremony in the ancient stone chapel.

Inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau, we began creating a day completely unique to such a loving couple.

“If you have built castles in the sky
Let not your dreams go to waste;
Just build the foundations under them."
~ Henry David Thoreau.

Following months of preparation, on a glorious June morning we made our way to Crom Castle to create a timeless and elegant wedding for Grace and Paul. To see our design come to life was dreamlike, from the bespoke stationery, hand-crafted linens, to the luscious florals, tumbling out of every nook, adorning all surfaces. Together with Magva Design & Letterpress we drew inspiration from the wooden boats that sail by the castle. Painterly blooms by Floral Earth crept across hand dyed tablecloths, with florals barely contained in their over-sized urns, teaming beautifully with glinting gold flatware and gold rimmed glassware.

Grace and Paul's love was captured in the low light of dusk, as mist raised from the lake and cloaked the landscape with cool wispy light.
