I think the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs just might be one of my favorite venues. It is so cheeky and fun with just the right amount of holy gorgeous design. And paired with the stylings of Megan Fickling of La Partie Events? Let’s just say this soiree had me at Hello. The pretty feminine florals mixed with the mid-century modern design is a fantastic fusion. A total dream and they used lemons! Oh how I love a good lemon infused tablescape. All of the greatness was captured by Nicole Hill Gerulat and there is so much more in the gallery. Check it out.
From the Bride…
My wedding on May the 14th, 2010 was absolutely perfect and a dream come true! My two favorite moments (besides seeing my handsome groom the first time!) involved the two ladies that helped me make my vision come true, Nicole Hill Gerulat my photographer and stylist extraordinaire and Megan Fickling of La Partie Events who was my florist and day of wedding planner.
Nicole is a long time friend, and even before I was engaged I knew I wanted her input! Nicole created all the paper goods and helped expand logo design my husband created into a common theme that was used to tie everything together. Most importantly Nicole was my photographer. My first favorite moment of the day was when Mike and I took pictures before the ceremony. At first I was hesitant because I thought that I wanted to wait and see him first when I walked down the aisle, but Nicole set up a perfect moment and location right outside the Gene Autry house where we saw each other and embraced for the first time. From there we frolicked all around The Parker property taking pictures that captured some of the most memorable moments of the evening. Nicole put together a photo booth at the reception that was a hit! Nicole’s calm, positive attitude and gorgeous pictures helped make the day very special.
My next favorite moment of the wedding was when Mike and I entered the ballroom lawn for the first time during the reception and I saw the flowers and table settings that Megan head created! I was blown away with the beauty of the pink and yellow peonies that were perfectly open, the mercury glass and vintage pink votives, the simple bloom on each dinner napkin, and the pink and white stripe and polka dot table runners she had made, I really could go on and on! Every detail we had discussed was executed more beautifully then I could have ever imagined! Like every bride, I wish I could relive the day over and over. I feel very lucky!
