They chose Clogher beach as their setting with the reception in Ballintaggart House for their real wedding in Dingle. Kelley, Dan and all of their guests are from New York, but Dan’s grandparents are from Dingle.
It was important to Kelley that everything looked natural, because she wanted to honour the location of Dan’s heritage. They chose fuchsias as a theme in colours of deep pink, purple and green.
Annie from Aislinn Events, who planned this real wedding in Dingle, loved this quote from the bride: “I want flowers that look like flowers, and a cake that looks like a cake.”
Dan and his friends belong to a Vespa club in New York, so Annie arranged a surprise Vespa delivery to the venue! She also ordered buttons with images of a Vespa, a fuchsia, a pint of Guinness and a harp to represent Ireland and their home.
Kelley’s gown and bridesmaids’ dresses were Gap and her shoes were Manolo Blahnik. The cakes were Cloudberry Bakery and the flowers by Every Occasion Florist in Tralee.
Kelley and Dan’s photographer friend, Adam Lerner travelled from New York to Dingle to shoot their wedding. He did an amazing job of capturing special, intimate moments between the couple with the spectacular backdrop of Co. Kerry.
The weather was clearly in the couple’s favour, and it’s obvious everyone was in a superb mood – especially those bridesmaids sitting barefoot on the sun-warmed rocks! This wedding is proof you don’t need to go away to have a beach adventure with enviable pictures. We have many favourites here, but the buttons completely stole WOL’s heart. What a fabulous idea for a favour, especially for small budgets! And it can be personalised a million ways too. Simply irresistible!
