Indiana natives, Alex and Delaney decided to leave family tensions behind and run off to Ireland, where the bride has family roots, to say their ‘I do’s.’ With only the groom’s parents and two photographers from Pure Purple Studios in attendance, the couple chose to forgo the formalities of a traditional wedding in favor of a lighthearted countryside ceremony full of laughter and tears, followed by pints of Guinness at the Smuggler’s Creek Inn.
Delaney, 19 & Alex, 21

We’ll be renting a lake house in our hometown of South Bend, Indiana and inviting friends and family.
