It wasn’t just the Irish eyes that were smiling on Saturday. Everyone was glowing as Laura and Don exchanged wedding vows at the historic Bell Tower Chapel in Boring, OR. The bride’s mother lovingly adorned both the sanctuary and the reception area with touches of the Emerald Isle including shamrocks, a Celtic cross and a tapestry which she gifted to the newlyweds. The ceremony included the Braided Cord ritual and heartfelt Irish blessings. The husband and wife duo known as Innisfree provided joyful Celtic music for both the ceremony and the reception. As a special surprise, the groom (whose kilt was custom designed for the wedding) serenaded his new bride with Bonnie Irish Girl to kick off the reception. The couple who reside in Tacoma where they work with autistic children, left for a 4-day honeymoon on the slopes in Jackson Hole, WY. They hope to make a trip to Ireland later this year. Congratulations, Laura and Don! May the love in your hearts continue to shine and your blessings be many.
