Hillary & Drew: Modern Rustic with Garden Style in Western Ireland

Without question, the most breathtaking part of Ireland is in the west. With the incomparable Cliffs of Moher, medieval castle towers, endless rolling hills of green and epic scenery, you’ll be spoilt for options for your wedding day. Such was the case for Hillary and Drew! Hillary has strong family ties to Doolin, the quaint village near the Cliffs that boasts the heart of Irish music and culture! Their day was filled with lots of celebrations, Irish traditions, toasts, and some pretty amazing photos as you can see.   The vibe was casual but elegant and romantic, taking heavy inspiration in the color palette from classic neutrals (white, grey) and green from the Irish countryside. Hillary and Drew wanted a modern romantic style, perfectly expressed in the stunning flowers by Bella Botanica and the minimalist style stationary featured throughout the day. A standout: the custom seating chart we created featuring a little Irish treat for the seating chart display!  Photos by Michelle BG Photography. 






We loved how perfectly  the modern touches worked against the rustic notes. Bella Botanica was on hand to create the stunning flowers once again. A traditional classic wedding color palette helped really elevate the rustic backdrop for the reception and ceremony spaces. Hillary’s look was simply stunning. The custom built escort card wall again was a lovely unexpected pop of modern and sophisticated in the space; the whiskey details was a nice surprise for the guests as they walked in! The cake echoed the more rustic tones and kept consistent with the color palette as well, while the custom stationary and table setting decor added the perfect pops of effortless sophistcation. 

The vibe was casual and inviting, and the guests instantly felt comfortable and enamoured with the Irish coast and culture. Irish music for the reception and traditional Irish fare for dinner including proper soda bread was the perfect touch!
