Zach and Claire first crossed paths on a little app called Tinder. Zach likes to say he never actually swiped since the moment he saw Claire's profile, he noticed a mutual friend they had. He reached out to his friend, Emily, and asked about this girl who caught his eye. He then had the urge to reach out to her on her Instagram out of a whim. Claire received the message and was like hey why not. After pushing him on a date, Zach was studying for his Doctorate at the time, crashed his study session. During one of their first dates, Zach invited her to a bonfire with some of his friends, she fit in perfectly and brought everyone shots. He knew this was the woman he would marry right away.
With Zach being very type A when it comes to planning. A huge engagement was planned for Claire followed by a surprise engagement party with 50 of their favorite people. Before the engagement happened he clued in her maid of honor Hannah with his plan and her goal was just not to give it away to Claire. Zach had to go pick up the ring and when his schedule was a little different than normal, Claire started asking questions. When talking to Hannah later that, she talked to her saying she knew Zach was lying to her. Hannah knew what was really happened and didn't know what to say so instead of saying the truth, she blurted "Well, maybe he is cheating on you?" Claire laughed and stated "oh no he loves me too much to do that" The most perfect answer.
Claire and Zach's wedding day was a beautiful day by the ocean. With the most people day in Santa Monica, the two were surrounded by the sweetest of friends and family. These two fit so perfectly together and they had such a wonderful mix of emotion, happiness and fun.
