There are few things I love more in this world than The Parker Palm Springs and photos by Caroline Tran and to see these two together for one fantastic fête has me smiling from ear to ear! The couple kept things modern as a nod to their venue with simple + clean centerpieces of red roses by ARTISAN Event Floral Decor. I’m seriously swooning over the lemonade cart with custom cocktail napkins which added the perfect pop of whimsy to the couple’s big day! See the rest of this beauty right here!
And don’t miss this cute video from Artisan Production Films:
From the Bride… My husband and I were fortunate enough to have our wedding at our favorite hotel of all time, The Parker. We loved having our friends and family around for a full weekend of wedding fun and quality time on the gorgeous grounds of the hotel. We celebrated with 100 of the most important people in our lives, and we’ll never forget how great it was and how fortunate we are!
We got engaged right before we ended up moving to NY. The few months we had before we flew out to NY, we spent trying to lock down The Parker as our venue. From there, I spent the next 11 months planning our wedding from NY. It was quite a challenge because the venue, our vendors and my dress were all in southern California! But everything ended up being wonderful. The process helped me realize that my true love in life (besides my husband!) is graphic design, and I’m so fortunate to have had such a great opportunity to explore it.
Being the food fanatics that we are, we decided to name our tables after all of our favorite restaurants in the three cities we’d lived in as a couple: Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. It couldn’t have been a more perfect option for us, and it was a total hit with our guests. As for the groom’s cake, my husband’s main obsession (after food and basketball) is Jordans. And when the time came for me to figure out what to get him as his surprise groom’s cake, I naturally went for his favorite shoe of all time, the Jordan 11st. Sweet and Saucy Bakery did an AMAZING job on recreating his shoe, and I’ll never forget his face when they brought his cake out after we had cut our standard wedding cake.
