Wedding Bells...

WEDDING BELLS

 

The first day I seen her when she worked at my friends house I said that she was the one and that I would marry her.  That was before I even heard her name.  I was right.  Kelsey and I couldn't be happier and we make the best team I could ever imagine a couple could be.

 

I was so glad that Kelsey could come on the road with me on the “On Mercy Street tour,” because a lot of you guys got to meet her.  You guys are like an extended family to me and have stuck with me through thick and thin since the start.  I Want to say a massive thanks on behalf of Kelsey and myself as to how kind you are you the both of us.  We are forever grateful.  I truly am one of the luckiest musicians on the planet to have fans like you. I know i say it so much but I really do mean it every time.  Your dedication and loyalty to me is unbelievable.  The Harkin Army are unbelievable.

 

THE BIG DAY

We debated forever on where we would have the wedding as we have friends everywhere across the planet…. and a few from mars as well it seems….haha.

We are going to get married in Ireland at our home in Donegal.  I have been working on an old 140 farm house for over a year now whenever I get time off with my family and pulling in as many favors as I can from friends to get the work done. Thats where we will be having the celebrations.

As you know me it will be no “ordinary,” wedding…  We are doing everything ourselves as thats the only way wet know how!

 

The day is going to be filled with friends, family, music, food, love and laughter.  If I could bring you all I would but… well.. you know. As you can imagine, we will have so much music on the day… I’ve written a song for the occasion with my Buddy Jack Tempchin!  No-one apart from myself and Jack have heard the song, and wont until the big day.  It will defiantly be on the next record.  It would bring a tear to a glass eye. :)

 

We will be getting married on Saturday July 2nd 2016.  I can hardly wait to tie the knot with this girl and also have all our friends and family from all over the world in our home in Donegal Ireland where my heart lies.  We have been working so hard to organize it but I know Its gonna be such an amazing day and i can hardly wait and watch it all come to bloom infant of my eyes.

 

So many of you have been asking about the big day. We only sent the invites out last week to our friends and family. We wanted to have them out before we told anyone else as you can understand.  A lot of you have been most generously asking me where you can send us gifts for our wedding.  Luckily, we already have a home full of everything we need - so have a look at this wish list below that we’ve made mainly for our friends and family! But as so many of you are really persistent!!! :) :) ....You can contribute to our dream honeymoon if ya really really want to, and from the rest of you... your kind words and blessings are massively welcomed!!!

We haven't planned exactly where we are going yet but we have handful of ideas floating around in our heads. Hopefully somewhere with no wifi, but just enough to Instagram the odd picture to keep you and our family in the loop!  

Its been a crazy ride with work the past few years and this really is the cherry on the top.

    Ely Minnesota has a lot to offer in terms of privacy and lots to do. Boundary Waters area is remote. You could rent a rustic cabin or have an outfitter set you up with whatever your looking for.

    Having someone to share your life, to be your helper, to care for someone you love is this thing called marriage. I know about this as my husband and I have been married for 60 years. It did not take log after we met to know that we wanted to be together. I wish you both much happiness and I look forward to seeing you both this coming November 2 in Mesa. We already have the tickets.

    Let me join everyone in wishing you & Kelsey every happiness as you begin this new chapter in your lives. I don't know if I've ever seen two people seemingly so "meant for each other". I was lucky enough to meet Kelsey last November at your gig in Boston. She's a lovely young woman. Have been following you from the beginning of your career with Celtic Thunder and now your solo career. You are such a gracious young man. Much love to the both of you!
