GREAT LISA BULL AND CHRIS DONOHOE'S HIGHLAND FLING B Y L A C Y B A L L . P H O T O G R A P H Y M I R R O R B O X P H O T O G R A P H Y, S C O T L A N D Lisa and Chris take a moment to savor the Scottish countryside. The Couple: Model Lisa Bull and singer, songwriter and The Dram co-owner Chris Donohoe Date: August 4, 2012 Ceremony venue: Chapel of The Holy Trinity on the grounds of Glenalmond College, Perthshire, Scotland Reception: The home of the groom's parents, Perthshire Coordinator: Wendy McArthur, Perthshire Flowers: Lorna Campbell with Floristic Designs, Scotland Caterer: Big Bite Catering, Scotland Music: Robert Scott, Frank Sinatra tribute singer; Callanish, a Ceilidh band Bride's gown: Lela Rose from Warren Barrón Groom: Family kilt Honeymoon: Bermuda and New York City The Donohoe family: Chris, Sophia and Lisa A different china collection was paired with each course. Walker's Shortbread Cookies were included in out-of-town guests' gift bags. Pretty. So rarely does one word sum up something as perfect as these Anthropologie studs. The Chapel of the Holy Trinity The groom and his brothers sported traditional Highland dress in the family's tartan, Drummond of Perthshire. Lisa and her father arrive at the chapel. Lisa carried a bouquet full of roses, peonies and thistle adorned with Bull family heirlooms, including two brooches (one of which was her "something blue") and a ring, all given by her mother and two grandmothers. DIVINE DETAILS friend Raymond Harris of Glasgow wore his own family's tartan. • The couple chose the groom's native country, Scotland, to exchange their vows. • The Abilene, Texas-born bride didn't forget her roots: Guests sang "America the Beautiful" as the final hymn during the wedding ceremony. • Out-of-town guests toured Scotland's oldest distillery, The Glenturret. Known for The Famous Grouse whisky, the historical landmark also served as the couple's rehearsal dinner party locale. • Seventy-five of the couple's closest friends and family witnessed the nuptials; the couple's 3-year-old daughter, Sophia, wore a bespoke Italian dress and nearly stole the show in her role as flower girl. • Chris, along with best men and brothers Martin Donohoe and DJ Donohoe, donned traditional Highland dress — kilts fashioned in Chris' family's tartan, the Drummond of Perthshire. Childhood Calligraphed place cards, each tied with ribbon to white thistle Nephews Dominic Hamill (left) and Christopher Hamill served as page boys, while 3-year-old daughter Sophie Sophia Donohoe bloomed as the flower girl. • The bride carried a bouquet of pale pink and white roses, pink peonies and thistle, the latter being Scotland's national flower. A twist on an age-old Scottish tradition included wrapping her bouquet with the family's tartan. • Glynn Woodin of London-based Mustard Catering served as the master of ceremonies — a phrase used in the UK to describe the person responsible for making the wedding day come to life. • With the help of stationer Southern Fried Paper, the couple designed their own emblem incorporating the American and Scottish flags, which was used to embellish their invitations and guests' pins. • With whisky in hand, Frank Sinatra tribute singer Robert Scott sang "All the Way" to accompany the newlyweds' first dance. WITH WHISKY IN HAND, FRANK SINATRA TRIBUTE SINGER ROBERT SCOTT SANG "ALL THE WAY" TO ACCOMPANY THE NEWLYWEDS' FIRST DANCE.
