College can be shaky ground for serious relationships, unless the parties involved have bachelor degrees in building design. Both architecture students at Clemson University, Clair Dias and David Stone structured their romance on a firm foundation. The two dated through undergrad and graduate school, until a family trip to Banff, Canada, presented David the ideal opportunity to nail down Clair’s “yes.” During a hiking excursion on Victoria Island, David popped the question, the moment forever captured on his strategically placed drone camera. The two were married at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Greenville with a reception following at the Greenville Country Club, both venues close to Clair’s family home. The bride wore a Christophe gown purchased from Nitsa’s Apparel in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Urban Petals designed her bouquet and florals, and the reception featured the tunes of Men of Distinction. Clair and David now live in Portland, Oregon. David is a user experience designer for Nike Technology, and Clair is an architectural designer for BORA Architects.
