The tradition of Irish wedding bells goes back as far as the Celitc lands, now the tradition of wedding bells rings across the world! Nearly every wedding has bells incorporated in one way or another, it could be as simple as the church bells to as intricate to every guest ringing the bells post ceremony.

The bells were believed to hold power against evil spirits and to grant wishes!

Who could turn down the idea of these fabulous qualities?!

This tradition leads onto the ringing of the bells before and after the wedding ceremony, notifying and sharing the joy of the newlyweds!

One fun fact of the Irish wedding bells, is that after their wedding has come and gone, couples are to place the bells in a safe and easily accessible place in their home.

Then, when a disagreement arises, the couple is to ring their bells in order to remind each other of their wedding day, including the vows they shared and promised to uphold.

Besides four leaf clovers and leprechauns, what is something else we associate with Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day?

While green is most commonly associated with Ireland, the color blue is actually believed to bring the bride good luck on her wedding day! This is where the blue color is incorporated into the design and many of the other elements.

From the cowgirl boots to the perfectly fitted dress, there was no element missed from this dazzling day.    Ciera and her bridesmaids completed their wedding day attire with vibrant bouquets handmade by her grandmother and cowgirl boots that were unique to their own colorful personalities.

One of the first special moments of the day was Ciera debuting her gorgeous wedding dress to her bridal party. A bride in her wedding dress, with her hair and makeup done, is exactly what every girl dreams of.

After modeling her dress for her bridal party, Ciera and her father did a first look. We hold Daddy Daughter moments near and dear to our hearts, and this one will bring about all the “feels.” A photo is worth a million words, and we feel that these photos say more than we ever could!

Just as their hashtag said, “Holm is where the heart is” and we couldn’t agree more!

The wedding was themed with neutral tones of tan and lace, pastel pinks and white floral arrangements, and wine barrels to add a rustic touch.

The sun was shining and the weather was just perfect, almost as perfect as the wedding itself!

Fairy Godmother Leticia loved planning with Tiffany and Eli! Leticia was so very honored to be trusted with such a special event, and enjoyed guiding them through the wedding planning process. Leticia noticed through the planning process that she slowly became more and more protective over the couple! Now that the wedding day has passed, she will forever have a very dear place in her heart for Mr. & Mrs. Serrano, just as they will forever have their very own Fairy Godmother.
