Swipe right for happily ever after …
On one fateful evening in 2014, a simple swipe on a phone screen forever changed the course of history. And out of match on Tinder, an epic love story - the CLAM love story - began.
Flash forward a few years, and technology played a role in Claire & Sam’s proposal too. In fact, it delayed it a few weeks since an emergency fix to a broken laptop took over the agenda for the day Sam had planned to pop the question. When it happened though, it was perfect, and it was time to start planning a high energy celebration of everything that makes this couple so special.
During their January wedding, we transported Claire & Sam’s loved ones to their own personal version of Narnia right here at the Hotel Monaco, in Washington, DC, that not even a government shutdown could put a damper on.
Their elegant navy and gold color scheme was a perfect compliment to the striking quince branch centerpieces and cozy bookworm touches that completed the tablescapes.
Best of all, their wedding day was filled to the brim with personal touches - my favorite thing! From dino cake toppers, to photos & short stories thoughtfully written about some of their most memorable travels together. From the delicious chocolate favors from the groom’s hometown, to glow-everything on the dance floor, we worked to put as much of Claire & Sam’s personalities into their day as possible, and oh what a joy it was to witness!
