Oh how I love a home-grown affair; one crafted so thoughtfully that it reflects a couple through and through. It makes for really beautiful, heart-felt nuptials made even more gorgeous with the help of fabulous vendors like Catherine Cindy Leo Weddings and Megan & Micah Photographers. Opting for a mini-getaway to Palm Springs, Nicole and Callard wed in a laid-back yet wildly chic affair held at Korakia Pensione and we are head-over-heels with the results. See every last detail from this Destination wedding right here!
From Catherine of Catherine Cindy Leo Weddings... The bride and groom incorporated a lot of their personal life and relationship history into this wedding, which took place in the same city (Palm Springs) where they go to get away from the city life of Los Angeles. Nicole and Callard spent a lot of their relationship, while dating, enjoying each other’s company while traveling to places within and outside the United States. They used the names of the cities as the table names for their dinner reception, where guests looked for their names and accompanying city for their seat. Everything about this wedding was all about putting their heart and soul into the details: the beer was handcrafted by the groom himself, the flowers symbolized her father’s heritage, the bride’s bouquet was made by the mother of the groom, candles were hand poured by the bride, the incredible dinner menu was created by the groom with the help of their friend, owner and head chef at Gjelina Restaurant in Marina Del Rey.
