Real Wedding Wednesday ~ St. Patrick's Day Meets Hawaii with a Little Rome

Sammy and Tom met in Italy seven years ago in Rome on St. Patrick’s Day. I mean… That’s pretty fucking cool, right? Seriously, I have no words to describe just how cool that is. AND, they met on a pub-crawl. Who meets on a pub-crawl and gets married? Aren’t those usually a sloppy mess of a time… all be it a fun time, but usually not the best circumstance to meet and marry. Right? And I thought I was cool because I met my hus in a bar, married him in Vegas and we still love each other, but Sammy and Tom? Totally got me beat!

Their dates were strewn between Naples (Italy) where Tom was stationed (in the Navy), and Rome… not too shabby! Ultimately, the made it stateside, and better yet, in Hawaii! Considering that they met on St. Patrick’s Day, the two decided to marry seven years to the day they met sporting a whole lot of green, and a whole lot of love… 

I love these robes. I mean, they are super Hawaiian, and super cute!! (And makes for quite a photo op!)

Adorable. Adorable headpiece. Can you feel it? The Hawaiian air? What an amazingly intimate and lovely spot for a ceremony...Love the Rolls!!! And Sammy kissing her Dad? Priceless.I love this shot. Now... Look down... Fabulous! I love how the bouquet is just sitting next to them on the dock.Hi puppy!A tribute to where it all started!Such a colorful, happy wedding!!I am in L O V E with this cake. And the toppers? SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!! Totally gonna flash this one on my cake board...See y'all later!
