A Classy Claremont Hotel Wedding For A Classy Pair: Dora & Jay

Find Me a Find… *Fiddler On The Roof anyone?*

I met Dora through CrossFit a few years ago and recently reconnected through yoga. What a total sweetheart! I was so happy when she told me about Jay. When she asked me to take their engagement and wedding photos at the gorgeous Claremont Hotel, I was Over. The. Moon. Excited!

One thing anyone would quickly notice about Jay and Dora is that they seem like a match made in heaven. Why, you may ask? Well, they were actually matched by a matchmaker! Old school!

That being said, they where smitten within the first minute of meeting each other.

A Claremont Hotel Wedding in Navy & Gold

The Claremont Hotel is one of the most beautiful Bay Area hotels, from the gorgeous architecture to some of the best views of San Francisco.

On her big day, Dora wore a stunning gown called the Marseille, designed by Naeem Khan and shoes by Badgley Mischka. Comfy sneakers were a collaboration by Keds and Kate Spade. Dora, you make such a beautiful bride! Be sure to see the dress details in the photos below, seriously it was breathtaking and I’m obsessed with the length!  Jay looked so handsome in a dashing suit by Isaia and shoes by Crockett & Jones

The ceremony itself was nothing short of romantic. The way Dora and Jay look at each other, it’s as if they were seeing each other for the first time. Excited, attraction, heart-eyed emoji type looks. The flower arrangements by Karah Schweizer (Nob Hill Floristwere exquisite! The colors where a classy navy and gold.

During the ceremony, a violinist and pianist set the tone for the room. Both Jay and Dora’s moms lit unity candles, then Dora and Jay read their vows, which they wrote themselves. Jay and Dora fell in love and couldn’t wait for this day! They are so grateful to have found one another. 

At the reception, the cake was the show stopper! It was made by one of my absolute favs,  Pretty Please Bakeshop (who just so happened to make our wedding cake too), and had gold flecks and beading to match Dora’s amazing dress.

Congratulations, Jay and Dora! I’m so very happy for you two, so very happy you found each other and I cannot wait to see what the next chapter brings you!
