Real Love Story: Marita and Conner

Connor and Marita got engaged on a trip to Ireland at the Cliffs of Moher. 
 
“In Ireland, I looked around at the pub we were in and thought it would be awesome to plan an Irish-themed wedding,” Marita said. “We wanted to keep it elegant, but make our guests feel like they were in an Irish pub here in Iowa. We created a photo wall for our guest that looked like an Irish pub setting: brick wallpaper with Irish-themed wall hangings and decor.” 
 
“For table decor, we used gold candelabras mixed with Irish books and green vintage books, Guinness bottles we made into candle votives, other small green candle votives and greenery. We also used Irish postcards to create our table markers. Last but not least, a full Irish meal, along with Guinness!”
