For some couples, bigger doesn’t always mean better. For Claire and Mac, the perfect wedding was a small family gathering at a familiar destination. “It was important to us to have an intimate wedding that we could enjoy every second of,” Claire says. “I’ve grown up going to Vail, and being able to ski the entire week leading up to our wedding was the perfect way to celebrate!” Even the proposal was a family affair. Last summer, Mac proposed on the dock at Claire’s family’s lake house. “There was a beautiful table set up with champagne and pictures from past memories,” Claire says. “My family was patiently waiting in the boat from afar to celebrate after the proposal.” More friends and family joined the celebration later that day, and the couple ended the evening at Selwyn Pub, their favorite local spot. For their wedding, the couple kept it intimate, inviting just 17 guests. “There was a fire, florals covering the table, candles galore and an amazing band. We were so grateful we were able to enjoy a moment with every guest and dance the night away.”
For Claire’s something blue, she carried a limited edition, numbered handbag by French designer Olympia Le-Tan. “It truly was the perfect something blue because we were in Vail and it is Barbie skiing — what could be more fitting for the occasion!”
