An Ivory Classic Wedding at Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose, California

Jennifer Lu (34, a teacher) and Shawn Davis (44, a teacher) both taught at the same elementary school for many years and always enjoyed when they got to spend time together. One thing led to the next over time, and after being in a serious relationship, the couple got engaged and was searching for the ideal wedding venue. Jennifer and Shawn booked the Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose, California for their wedding celebration. The couple envisioned a theme that embodied a feeling of renewal, such as the two of them starting their lives together. With natural lighting and a unique backdrop, the Sainte Claire Hotel did just that. Their color palette was ivory and green, using the combination within their hydrangea centerpieces spread throughout the venue space. Jennifer wore an ivory strapless wedding dress with a mermaid fit and a lace covering along with ivory heels to match. Shawn wore a dark charcoal gray suit with a light green tie, all purchased from Joseph A. Banks. The guest book was ordered from Etsy, which was a hand-painted tree on a canvas for guests to mark their thumbprint on the tree and sign their names. Now hanging in Jennifer and Shawn’s home, it is a day to remember forever.
