Bekah & Clint | The Beginning of | Happily Ever After
2: The Story of Us... | Clint and Bekah met in 2008, while working together at First National Bank. On the first official date, he cooked dinner and she thought, "this guy's a keeper!' The relationship quickly blossomed, as the two discovered they had many shared interests. They both enjoy traveling and went on their first vacation together after dating for just four months (Mexico). Since that first trip, they have also spent a weekend in Kansas City, MO; toured the south, including St. Augustine, FL, Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC, and Amelia Island, FL; returned to Mexico for a second time; traveled to Park City, UT; visited Clint's Dad and Step-mom in Tucson, AZ; and escaped to Mexico for a third time. They are looking forward to their honeymoon in Rome, Paris, and Barcelona! | Clint and Bekah also both share a passion for going to concerts and sporting events, and sampling new foods - whether it's at a restaurant or experimenting in the kitchen at home. They spend time with their friends and family whenever they have they have a chance, but also the two also value life's simple pleasures such as a walk around the neighborhood trail or a movie on the couch.

17: Hotel Overview The Omaha Magnolia Hotel is a 145-room upscale boutique hotel located in the heart of downtown Omaha, Nebraska. Just three blocks from historic Old Market, the Omaha Magnolia caters to the sophisticated traveler. The Omaha Magnolia Hotel combines Old World charm with contemporary style. With 22 hotel suites, including two-level executive suites, one-level Jacuzzi suites and a spacious 1,200 square-foot presidential suite, the Omaha property is ideal for extended stays and business travelers. With its contemporary décor and unique design, the Magnolia is the perfect combination of style and elegance. History The Omaha Magnolia Hotel was built in 1923 by Chicago capitalist Chester Cook, and named the Aquila Court building after Chester's grandfather. The faces of George and Aquila Cook are on the front of the hotel, which is constructed of Bedford limestone and contains Tennessee marble floors and a Brazilian cherry wood lobby. The building design was based on the Bargello, a palace in Florence, Italy, which contained a peaceful courtyard. The Bargello is now a museum that contains early Italian sculpture. The U-shape structure's design is indicative of the renaissance revival style. Listed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the building originally contained 18 shops and 240 offices. In 1995, the building was renovated into the Westin Aquila Hotel and was named to the Historic Hotels of America in 1996. In 1999, the building was renamed the Sheraton Omaha Hotel. In fall 2006, Magnolia Hotels acquired the building, and a renovation began to update the property.
