Some of you may already be familiar with Pretty as a Picture, but if not and you're a bride-to-be you should definitely check them out. Ailbhe is a super talented artist who has focused her talents on weddings and creates stunning unique invitations and illustrations for couples. You should also check out her super cute engagement diary! Her latest post on bridesmaid invitations really is fantastic.
But this post is about Ailbhe and Aiden, a beautiful couple that both have such intriguing life stories. Ailbhe was born and raised in the middle east by her Irish parents, living in exotic places like Dubai and Qatar. She came back to Ireland for university. Aiden went to the states to get scouted for pro basketball and spent a few years in the midwest attending highschool. But it was just another day at the office when they met in Dublin.
We decided to have their engagement shoot in the Botanic Gardens in Dublin. We knew if it rained we had the greenhouses to fall back on. And of course it did rain. A lot! But by the end of the shoot they didn't care and embraced the wet weather. After all this is Ireland. Who are we kidding, it rains here a lot! But I'm still crossing my fingers for sunshine on their wedding day. ;)
