Kristen and Adam met on a dating app in Washington DC. On 5th June 2022, Adam got down on one knee at Kristen’s birthday brunch and in front of some of her closest friends, he asked her to marry him.



Kristen and Adam wanted to elope and have a private, intimate ceremony between just the two of them. Adam had earned a company trip to Dublin so they decided to stay in country after the trip to have their nuptials performed in Doolin, County Clare.



Their elopement was beautifully arranged by Ireland’s leading elopement specialist, Stephen Neary of Eloping in Ireland. Here’s what he had to say about the day:

“It was an honour to help plan Kristen & Adam’s beautiful elopement wedding in Ireland at Gus O’Connor’s Pub. It really was a magical day. The team at ‘Eloping in Ireland’ love to work with international couples to make their dreams come true. ”



Kristen wore an ivory coloured dress and Adam wore a two-toned tux with a maroon jacket and black pants.



This is what they had to say about their amazing photographer:

“Tony Clancy was phenomenal! Despite the rain, he made us both feel special, comfortable, and was down to do whatever to get the best photos!”



Kristen and Adam had a beautiful day, with so many fond memories. Here’s what stood out for them:

“We are so grateful that we did things our way! It was fun and intimate to just have it be the two of us.”



Newlyweds give fabulous wedding advice! This is Adam and Kristen’s advice for couples planning their wedding:

“Quiet the noise, reflect on what you want as a couple, and do it. A marriage is between the two people who love each other. That’s it!”
