The Venue at Waterstone St. Patrick's Day Wedding | Patrick & Haley

What a one-of-a-kind, joyful CELEBRATION!

I mean, I think you can already tell by that by the ear-to-ear smiles, floral-decorated beer pony and St. Patrick's Day festive details that made the Ryan wedding absolutely PERFECT. Oh, that--AND the surprise fireworks to wrap up their fairytale ending! 

It was an absolute treat getting to work with and know Haley and Ryan. They're two of the most genuine, sweet and fun people. When I scroll through their wedding dog, the word that comes to mind is simply: JOY. Their smiles say it all; I feel like the bright, colorful theme of their wedding day says it all; the dancing says it all--it's so evident. 

What a beautiful way to remember the day that you celebrated becoming ONE as Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Ryan! 

Haley and Ryan celebrated their nuptials on St. Patrick's day with a festive beer pony that delivered ice cold beer to guests during the cocktail hour, green beer (#duh) and some cute signs ("Irish you'd take another beer") that were hand-lettered by the groom's sister herself--priceless. 

As you start scrolling, you'll soon see how difficult it was to stop taking portraits of the two of them, for their day was just too beautiful, the details all too plentiful (#YES) and it seemed as though we had all the time in the world for portraits because of their "first look". I love knowing that these two have more captures from their wedding day than not enough, because it was one for the books! 

From laughter and smiles all around during the father-of-the bride toast to perfectly-timed rain after the cocktail hour ended and everyone was inside, the Ryan wedding day couldn't have unfolded any more beautifully. I love how the lead singer of the band commented on how he loved seeing the bride and groom together, hand-in-hand, dancing on the dance floor the entire reception--because it's so true! This isn't always the case, and it's so refreshing to see a married couple on their wedding day maximizing their time together while with their loved ones! 

Biggest hugs to this beautiful newlywed couple who's been celebrating at the beach since they said, "I do"!!!
