A Celtic Connection

Updated: April 20, 2024
Categories: ,

Grace and Zach’s love story began with a connection on hinge, progressed through the world of dating, and culminated in a beautiful Celtic ceremony on St. Patrick’s Day. Grace, in touch with her Celtic heritage, incorporated elements of Ireland into their Chicago wedding. The ambiance was set with moody candles, mossy floral arrangements, and Celtic calligraphy throughout. Grace even chose a wedding gown, by Valentini, adorned with vine and floral details as a subtle nod to her Irish roots.

Tell us about your Dimitra’s experience:

“10/10 experience from start to finish thanks to Rachael, Francesca and Agnes! I felt like an Irish woodland princess with the leafy details and sparkle.” – Real Bride Grace.

Tell us your love story:

“First comes Hinge, then comes marriage… In March 2018, we met for drinks at Henry’s in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. We didn’t think much of it – another dating app date to pass the time during a long winter. 6 hours later, we were devouring tacos across the street! The following week, I insisted we meet up on St Patrick’s Day – the real dealbreaker – and the rest is history. Fast forward 6 years, we are tying the [Celtic] knot on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Sláinte!” _Real Bride Grace

Tell us about your big day:

“We brought Ireland to Chicago in honor of Grace’s Celtic roots and upbringing. From the moody, warm candles to the mossy floral details, Celtic calligraphy throughout the venue, and surprise performance of Irish step dancers, we did just that.” – Real Bride Grace
