The couple married at the same church where they’d attended Catholic school as children. They kept the decor very simple, with a fabric-draped aisle and two large arrangements of green cymbidium orchids, white and cream roses, and calla lilies at the altar.

The Spanish style of Maitee’s Vera Wang gown fit the formality of the wedding perfectly. The strapless, off-white couture design was made almost entirely of lace and embellished with beading around the bustline. Diamond chandelier earrings, an incredible handmade tiara, and a pair of Jimmy Choo sling backs added to her glamorous look.

The two ended up in the same school that year and remained friends through high school and college, but they lost touch until they bumped into each other at a happy hour in 2001.
