It was a dark and rainy day outside… but inside the Portofino Hotel, everyone’s spirit was as bright as a sunny day. Annie and Eugene were both all smiles and so ready to marry each other. They were an amazing couple to work with. Two days before the wedding, we had to move the ceremony indoors due to the the rain. I was bummed that the ceremony won’t be outside next to the water… but Annie and Eugene were so easygoing and understanding. They knew that the true significance of the ceremony wasn’t its location, but the fact that they were saying their “I Do’s” in front of their families and closest friends.

And of course… here is their highlight video from the talented Tim of Lin and Jirsa.

I think any planner would agree, that some of their favorite weddings are the ones that can be remembered as an intimate affair filled with friends and family who absolutely adore the couple.  Well, Claire and Oliver’s wedding was just that.  Working with them was one of the most enjoyable planning experiences I have had the pleasure to be a part of.  Claire and Oliver were actually friends long before they started dating, so the mutual respect and adoration that they have for one another was not a surprise, but still very endearing.  From day one, we were extremely excited for the opportunity to work with such an easy going couple and since both of them are nurses with hectic schedules, we had the opportunity to work with them both.   It’s not often that we get to work so closely with a groom who is also so willing to do the planning because his blushing bride to be is busy with her work schedule.

Their wedding was filled with a lot of smiles, hugs, dancing and love.  One of the highlights from the evening was definitely the speech given by the sister of the bride and MOH when she made an adorable reference to them as Claire Bear and Oli-Bear Ta-bear-es.  We were definitely smiling from ear to ear the entire day.

Absolutely loved the color scheme for their wedding!  The thoughtful couple made a contribution to the American Cancer Society in honor of each of their guests.  The Live Strong bracelets were the perfect favor for their wedding.

Thank you, Claire and Oliver for sharing your special day with us, we wish you all the best!
