I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jaime and Tom. Jaime and Tom are both from the US. They live in New Hampshire but Jaime is from the Chicago suburbs just like me. Small world! Being at their wedding was like going home for a visit; with the familiar American accents, sweets from home, and just hearing news about the states made it so much fun!
Jaime's grandfather is originally from Listowel but moved to the states when he was still young. About 10 years ago Jaime visited Ireland and fell in love with the town of Adare. So when planning their destination wedding Adare was at the top of the list. Jaime and Tom picked the stunning Adare Manor as the setting for their wedding day. It is just magnificent! For me I was super excited to find out that dinner was held in the same room Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne judged the over 28s in The X Factor. Yes I'm a total fan! But I know why they both chose Adare Manor for their big event, it's like nothing you've seen before. The sheer grandeur is breathtaking.
Being from the windy city of Chicago I think Jaime may have brought some of that wind to Ireland. We got so lucky it did not rain, even with the looming clouds, but the wind was strong. You may notice in a couple photos!
Overall I couldn't have asked for a better day or a better couple. Jaime and Tom you were so fantastic! I hope you're enjoying your honeymoon in Seychelles! Please bring back some sun for me!
