Hannah Clare and Danny Seifried were married on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019, at Stowe Community Church.
Pastor Will Vaus officiated a memorable candlelit service.
The bride and groom met at Xavier University in Cincinnati, where both obtained undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Danny is a financial analyst with Coty Inc., a New York-based consumer products beauty company in Manhattan. Hannah is a digital marketing consultant with Cincinnati-based Club Essential; she works remotely in Manhattan. They live in New York City with their 3-month-old daughter, Clare Louise Seifried.
Hannah has been coming to Stowe since she was young. She invited Danny to join her on a family trip to Stowe several years ago. After several joint trips to Stowe, Hannah and Danny dreamed of having family and friends celebrate their marriage in Stowe.
They were engaged on Hannah’s birthday in Chicago at Streeter’s Tavern, after Hannah beat Danny once again at foosball. His defeat took him down on one knee and out came the ring. A year and a half later, their winter wedding in Stowe became a reality. A little before the wedding, baby Clare arrived.
After the dusk ceremony at Stowe Community Church, guests were shuttled to The Lodge at Spruce Peak for a candlelit reception.
A Thursday night party was held at the Matterhorn, hosted by family friends. The mother of the groom hosted an intimate, beautiful dinner immediately following the rehearsal, and the Green Mountain Inn was the site of the Friday night welcome party. More than 150 guests came to enjoy Stowe, most from Kentucky, the original home of both the bride and groom.
The parents of the bride (Susan and Greg Clare of Louisville, Ky.), mother of the groom (Mary Seifried of Florence, Ky.) and father of the groom, (Drew and Missy Seifried of Florence, Ky.) are thankful that Hannah, Danny and baby Clare’s marriage was filled with joy and love by all who attended.
They’re also thankful to Stowe and everyone there for creating such a brilliant wedding weekend. Stowe shined with beautiful weather throughout the long weekend. The out-of-town guests declared Stowe a “magical place.”
The young couple and baby Clare took the Amtrak Vermonter back to Manhattan on Wednesday after the wedding. The train was delayed only a minute while two conductors had to help them load “everything.”
