I am in disbelief at the people I get to meet and the places I get to go because of filming weddings. Truly, unbelievable at times. And having the amazing privilege to film Brendan and Jeannie's wedding at Dromoland Castle in Ireland is still like a dream to me! What makes this story even more incredible is Brendan and Jeannie were originally going to have their wedding in Atlanta on a different date, but I was unavailable. 3 months went by, and out of nowhere, Jeannie emails me saying they decided to move their date and have a destination wedding in Ireland. For those of you taking notes out there, if you can, always choose a wedding in Ireland.

Not only were we able to film the wedding at the enchanting Dromoland Castle, but we were able to visit the Cliffs of Moher a couple of days before the wedding and film there as well. There were a few times I put my camera down just to marvel at the beauty of this remarkable creation. I had heard warnings of the unpredictable weather in Ireland, but wouldn't you know, not a single drop of rain the day of the wedding! I pray for a "happily ever after" for Brendan and Jeannie. Cheers to the Clunes!
