Front and Center: Making Yourself a Part of Your Brand
Claire is the founder and creative director at Claire Duran Weddings & Events, a full service wedding planning and design company based out of Washington, DC, also serving destination wedding clients (with a particular, yet not exclusive focus, on her home country, the Dominican Republic). Claire's work has two pillars, one which is the creation of what she calls "wedding art" throughout her designs, and the other is providing the experience of a successfully planned and executed event. Her signature style could be defined as simple organic elegance, and she's a firm believer of valuing quality over quantity. In just the past 3 years alone her work has been featured over 60 times in prestigious national and international blogs and magazines like Style Me Pretty, Once Wed, Trendy Bride, Wedding Sparrow, Hochzeitsguide, Magnolia Rouge and many more. Claire is also very passionate about education and community, having previously participated in other educational offerings like Composed Workshop (which she founded alongside Cristina Barragan), Intrigued Experience, FleurSociety Online Summit, and Planner's Intensive. Before turning into a full time wedding planner and designer, Claire used to work as a researcher, using her Doctorate in Public Policy for working in matters of governance and democracy in Latin America.
