Guests all in white, the Bride in a lovely red dress, entertainment on stilts… only at The Parker Palm Springs can you find such wonderment. It’s a wedding reminiscent of a really cool, ultra elegant lawn party inspired by Bali and all things exotic. With planning by Nouveau Events, decor by Arrangements Floral & Party Design and images by Sasha Gulish, this affair has us dreaming of a white party all our own; circus performers included. See all the magic unfold right here.
From Weddings by Sasha Gulish… My sweet friends Sarah and Andrew invited all their guests to join them in celebrating their love at The Parker Hotel in Palm Springs. In typical Sarah and Andrew style, nothing was typical. All guests were asked to wear white, while the beaming bride wore a stunning red dress. Erin and Krista from Nouveau Events did an amazing job bringing the couple’s vision to life. We all danced the night away, intoxicated by their love, or perhaps the tequila…
From Nouveau Events… Working with Sarah and Andrew was truly a memorable experience from start to finish. When asked what their wedding style was, Sarah said, “Groovy Chic!” with no hesitation. This notion was carried out with the help of all of their amazing vendors through an elegant white theme that included accents of color from Balinese umbrellas, symbolic statues, fine linens and prayer shawls from their well-traveled life together. Romantic touches were added with a draped curtain entrance opening up to a pathway of twinkle lights that led to a large canopy lit by crystal chandeliers. The mood was romantic and exotic but did not take itself too seriously. They even had funky noisemakers that guests used at the closing of their ceremony as well as special Cirque du Soleil-type performers during the reception! Further, the mixture of their friends from all over the world gave the wedding weekend a feeling of unique eclecticism. We were impressed not only by the love that is so palpable between this happy couple, but also by how much love and support they received from their wonderful friends. Each guest wrote a special wish and or blessing for Sarah and Andrew, and they were individually tied to a special Balinese umbrella. The continued sentiment of love and support was also echoed through the numerous toasts that added both humor and poignancy to the various events of the weekend. In the end, Sarah and Andrew’s wedding was a true “lovefest” that reflected their unique and tender spirits. We feel honored to have shared in this memorable and special time of their life.
