I‘ve been attempting to be the Queen of multitasking this week, as Andy’s job has continued to demand most of him (physically and mentally) and I’ve been mostly consumed by politics and the day job. I’ve promised myself I would be better about blogging though and so here I sit, at just past 10pm with my cellphone streaming the DNC, the baby monitor on, and my fingers typing into WordPress on my laptop. Today’s real DC wedding is beautiful ~ full of the perfect shades of blue (even in the bride’s engagement jewel!) and a dreamy garden ceremony location. It’s nice to have pretty weddings to escape to sometimes when life is crazy or politics can be too much to handle. So enjoy.
Aidan and Denise met in Ireland and now live there full time. Aidan is from Ireland while Denise is originally from the Northern VA area. They planned their wedding from across the world at one of the most beautiful venues in DC, The Tudor Place.
We chose the colour blue to match Denise’s sapphire ring which was chosen to match her eye colour (she didn’t want a diamond). [We chose] white because we felt it complemented the blue well.
For the venue we were looking for an outdoor venue in a garden. Choose these two venues after seeing them in another couples blog, also we really like going out in the Dupont area.

Mother of the groom made the Celtic handfasting ribbon with colours of both our countries. (Ireland and France)
I (Aidan) put together the posters and seating chart. (He does graphic design work.) Also I crafted my own ring. (He crafted the ring by hand.) Denise’s godmother made her pearl necklace and earrings.
