To kick off their wedding weekend, the festivities started with a welcome party at a classic Irish pub in Dublin. The next morning guests headed south by train and car towards the beautiful Mount Juliet Estate, just outside of Kilkenny. Upon arrival, they were given the opportunity to partake in one of the estate’s many sporting activities including golf, hiking, horseback riding, and falconry. Before the festivities were to begin, Kelly, Paddy, and I snuck away for an hour to explore the estate’s vast gardens for a beautiful pre-wedding session.

That evening, Kelly & Paddy hosted their friends and family for a beautiful rehearsal dinner that culminated in watching the sunset over the rolling Irish hills dotted with horses while guests broke into spontaneous singing and piano-playing.

To set the tone for their sophisticated European soiree, Shasta Bell Calligraphy designed an incredible array of paper goods that perfectly tied in the old-world elegance of the venue with the classic style that Kelly so loves. I especially loved the hand-drawn illustration of the estate which was sprinkled throughout the entire wedding weekend – from inside of welcome bags to the ceremony programs.

Kelly and her bridesmaids got ready together in Mount Juliet’s beautiful bridal suite. While wedding mornings can sometimes feel rushed and chaotic, the moment I walked into the suite I felt a sense of serenity wash over me. Everyone was relaxed, happy, and sipping bubbly – exactly what a bride and her girls should be doing on the wedding day!

For Kelly’s bridal look, she chose a simple and sophisticated gown by Jenny Yoo that perfectly reflected her classic style. Paired with Loeffler Randall heels, a gorgeous updo, and a flowing, ethereal veil, she was truly one of the most timeless and elegant brides I had ever seen.

Kelly’s bridesmaids were able to each chose their own dress from Bhldn, and I love the way the different shades of grey perfectly complimented each other. These ladies were so sweet and fun – and a bonus that two (now three!) were my cousins!

Their ceremony was held in a gorgeous walled garden, framed by a gorgeous arch overflowing with blooms and greenery designed by the incredible Bella Botanica. Kelly’s brothers walked her down the aisle and they were married by Dara, a Celtic Monk, who wrote one of the most heartfelt ceremonies I had ever heard. And, because we were in Ireland, we were graced with a little good-luck rain shower that added such a romance and intimacy to the moment. It was beautiful!

Just as quickly as the rain came it was gone, and in its place the most beautiful Irish sunshine – a dream for me as an Ireland film photographer! After their ceremony, the new Mr. and Mrs. Carr toasted their love with a glass of bubbly. Along with their guests, they headed back to the manor house for canapes and cocktails before the three of us snuck out to capture their wedding portraits in the garden.

As the sun set, we returned to their intimate dinner which was hosted in the beautiful and historic Lady Helen Dining Room. Waterlily Weddings & Bella Botanica turned the space into a romantic, garden-inspired dreamland complete with lush blooms and countless candles illuminating their guests as they toasted the newlyweds.

The long, lingering dinner was punctuated by some of the most heartfelt (and hilarious) speeches I have ever heard. Finally, the couple and their guests headed into the bar for live music and dancing until the wee hours of the morning.
