High-School friendship leads to marriage on the West coast of Ireland.

If like us you love to hear how a love story began, how they set a date, settled on one location over another or in this “love story”  why they selected Ireland for their destination wedding – then keep reading.


They first met at High-school but Cupid didn’t strike his arrow for some time.

Marin & Rob’s West Coast Wedding took place at Trump International Golf Links & Hotel (formally the Lodge at Doonbeg ) Co. Clare. A wonderfully wild stretch of land that has huge Atlantic waves crashing on a beach not 100 yards from this 5 star venue.


With a busy week which kicked off with a ‘ Welcome Party’  at  Trumps Bar – Whiskey tasting, traditional music with Irish food including oysters and guinness. The next morning more that half of the guests played golf on the amazing like course, while the rest enjoyed a luxury day at the Spa. Rehearsal dinner was hosted by Rob’s parents where all the formalities were followed by a night of song and dance at a traditional Irish pub.

“Rob and I met in highschool, but did not date then. We started dating after college when we ran into each other in a bar We chose Ireland for many reasons. We both wanted a destination wedding and I studied abroad in Dublin and fell in love with the country. My family has always loved Ireland (the culture and people are the best). When we came round to looking at destination venues for our day, Ireland was the perfect fit- especially with the romantic countryside. Not to mention Trump hotel isn’t too shabby either. All in all it turned out to be the perfect combination which may be the reason why so many people decided to join in our adventure.”

They wanted more than anything to have some photographs taken on the beach and Marin was quick to kick off her green Burberry shoes and get sand on her Monique Lhuillier gown.023
