Our 6th day was spent at the WEDDING, the reason we planned this fabulous trip!! Isn’t the bride just LOVELY?!! And the proud Mum and Dada right by her side. :>

Buckle up, Irish weddings are LONG! I kept warning Steve and Leta that it was going to be a long, but fun day!

Sweet flowers on the ends of the pews made by the sister of the bride:

Together 18 years later. It meant so much to me that they all kept saying to me, “Welcome home!” Exactly!

We were so privileged to be a part of this joyous day with our dear friends! When the bride invited us soon after becoming engaged a year earlier, we were determined to make the trip happen! It was great motivation to plan another visit after 12 years!

Such a fun day…even if we did leave “early” after 13 1/2 hours!! It was only 2:30 in the morning, after all.  ;>

And…the Instagram view:
