Claire and Sanjiv’s elegant wedding at The Olana is full of romantic details in blush, ivory, and green. The two who started as friends at work eventually realized they had a deeper connection than just friends. In the summer of 2019, on a trip to Aruba, Sanjiv got down on one knee and proposed. After a dreamlike proposal, the couple began planning their classic and romantic wedding with the help of Julep Events. Their elegant southern wedding started with a bridesmaids’ luncheon at The Adolphus, a luxurious hotel in downtown Dallas. The following day Claire and her bridesmaids arrived at The Olana to begin getting ready in the bridesmaids’ suite. In addition, the groom and his boys also arrived at The Olana early and took full advantage of the bowling alley and basketball court the venue has available. Incredible, right? After soaking up every moment while getting ready with her bridesmaids, Claire changed into a gown from Stardust Celebrations. Claire wore a beautiful princess gown with earrings from Bridal Boutique and a hair and makeup look from Etoilly Artistry. An absolutely stunning bridal look!

 

Claire and Sanjiv’s wedding took place on a warm August evening. Their officiant kept things short because of the Texas heat but made the couple laugh taking away any stress or worry. After Claire and Sanjiv said their “I dos,” they were ready to party with friends and family. Inside the reception hall, guests were treated to a seated dinner from The Olana. Food was a priority for the couple when planning their big day, especially their cakes. The couple was so in love with all the flavors from Sugar Bee Sweets that they chose five different flavors for their bridal cake and groom’s cake. Claire said, “the food, cake, and dancing were so much fun, and I loved getting to celebrate with everyone who was able to attend.” In addition, Claire and Sanjiv were blown away by their photographer and videographer. Chua Lee Photography made magic behind the camera, while Shawn Yang Films captured their wedding beautifully on film. We are so excited to share all the details of Claire and Sanjiv’s wedding.

Claire and Sanjiv’s Favorite Wedding Memory:

“During our ceremony, I remember our officiant cracking a joke and making us laugh. With everything leading up to that moment, it’s easy to be distracted by all of the stress and what’s going on in the background. Our officiant was able to bring us to the present so that we could relax and focus on each other.”
