“I Do, I Do, I Do!” in the newly refurbished Ashford Castle

We started talking to Cyrstalyn and Jeff back in May 2013 about their dreams for the perfect destination wedding in Ireland. Just like so many couples life got in the way, they bought a house and planning their elopement took a back seat. Fast forward a year and they were ready to make their dream wedding in Ireland a reality!! It was such a pleasure to work with them over the last 12 months creating, planning and coordinating their big day. On June 24th Crystalyn and Jeff eloped to one of Ireland’s most stunning castle’s to say I do. Ashford Castle was just voted Number 3 in Travel + Leisure Magazine’s ‘World Best Hotels.’!! I think you will agree the day was pretty stunning!! Thank you Melissa Mannion for the amazing photos!!
