Jamie & Matthew

Dec. 5, 2009 at Fairmont in Scottsdale

Jamie Pootrakul and Matthew Boggs practically breathe blue—she’s an assistant athletic director and he’s an assistant baseball coach for Duke University’s Blue Devils—but there wasn’t a stitch of cyan at their regally red December nuptials. Rich burgundy drapes set the stage for what the bride calls “an intimate, romantic, royal dinner for 150 of our closest friends.” Guests dined on sea bass at five long tables swathed in gold, and in lieu of wedding cake, indulged in chocolate-covered strawberries and gold-dusted truffles served family style. In a nod to Jamie’s Thai heritage, each guest received a gold elephant key chain (tusks pointed up, for good luck), brought to the States by her aunt.
