The picture he sent of eggs and bacon in her mother’s skillet should have tipped off Olivia to Maxwell’s proposal—he said he was camping in San Francisco, when he was actually in Austin asking her parents for her hand. But his charade prevailed, paying off six months later during a trip to Portland. First he surprised her with a proposal in the city’s Japanese Gardens, then again when their families greeted them for a private baby elephant feeding at the zoo, and once more when her brothers popped up at their celebratory brunch. Their Palm Springs wedding was more by the book for all parties involved. Inspired by Olivia’s Ines Di Santo gown, the art deco affair—festooned with white and black florals, gold accents, and navy subtleties—was a day the newlyweds and their guests will never forget.
Their favorite part of the wedding day? The first look.
At First Sight
The first time Olivia laid eyes on Maxwell, at Loyola Marymount University’s orientation, she called it: “I’m going to date that guy someday,” she told her friend.
“Our wedding day is one we’ll never forget, but it’s even more special when we have friends and family still talking to us about how much fun it was.”
