Featured Wedding 2019 | Andee & Josh: Modern Elegant Summer Castle Wedding

We are so excited to share with you one incredible, impeccably styled wedding we had the pleasure of helping design, plan and coordinate this past summer! Andee and Josh brought their California chic and infectious energy to the planning process early on, dreaming up a spectacular fairytale castle wedding that is one for the books! A color palette of pink and green tones drew inspiration from their custom designed logo and crest, while details like a life falcon ring bearer (!), fireworks, and more delighted guests throughout the day. Design, planning, and coordination by Waterlily Weddings. Flowers by The French Touch. Styling and decor by Frog Prince. And these gorgeous, timeless photos by the supremely talented Brosnan Photographic. Please make sure to scroll down for the full gallery and great details at the end!

The Details

Andee and Josh are power-players in the world of Silcon Valley. They came to us to help bring to life their vision for a dream destination wedding in Ireland.  A castle was a must, and Luttrellstown fit the bill perfectly with its gorgeous grounds, exclusive hire, and proximity to Dublin.

We got started on the design brief right away. Andee wanted a modern take on a traditional wedding — one that felt classic, elegant, and timeless but that also felt contemporary and not old-fashioned. We took heavy inspiration in the color palette from her custom-designed logo, featuring an adorable sheep (a nod to Ireland) and the summer season. Rose quartz, cashmere rose, dove grey, sage, emerald and gold comprised their main color palette. An unexpected touch came from blackwatch tartan — which we accented with sparingly and explored in fuller detail the night before for the medieval-inspired rehearsal dinner.

The bespoke ceremony combined Irish and Jewish traditions. The French Touch created a stunning floral chuppah and we carried the green and pink tones in some of the floral and accent elements. But by far the star of the ceremony was the falcon ring bearer! Surprising the guests, he flew from the back with the wedding rings attached right up to Josh to usher in the apex of the ceremony!

We continued the florals in the reception, focusing on soft, romantic petaled flowers like peonies and garden roses.  Pops of gold elevated the design and it flowed seamlessly into the castle’s already-rich aesthetic. Live music delighted the guests all evening, including some sets featuring Josh himself! And finally, sparklers ushered the couple outside at dusk for their own private fireworks show before returning back for even more dancing and partying into the early morning hours!


Andee and Josh — it was an absolute pleasure working with you on your wedding! From your infectious smile and bright light personality every chat we had, you both just shined on your day. We sincerely wish you the best life together, full of many more adventures and explorations yet to come! Mazel Tov and many Irish blessings to you both!
