A Wedding in Ireland

Matt and I just returned from a week long trip to the Emerald Isle for my sister-in-law Maria’s wedding. This was our second trip to Ireland and I didn’t think it was possible to fall more in love with this place and its people.

It was a short trip filled with laughter, family, delicious food, and memories that will last a lifetime.

We spent most of the trip in County Donegal, on the northwestern part of the island. The area is called a gaeltacht, meaning the locals speak mostly Gaelic. We stayed in a little cottage with a view of the ocean, no wifi and a limited quantity of hot water. It was the perfect getaway from our fast paced, technology filled DC lives.

I’m putting together a little video from the trip but couldn’t wait to share some photos of our time in Ireland and my beautiful sister-in-law (and new brother-in-law’s) wedding!

There’s also more photos on my Instagram!

For the bachelorette party, we went horseback riding along the beach and ate pizza and cider.
