Real Wedding: Nicci & John

May 12, 2011

Oh boy! I could not be more excited about sharing this wedding with you.  Palm Springs is such a great destination option for Orange County couples and I was thrilled to help Nicci & John plan their wedding in La Quinta, CA.

From the first time I talked on the phone to Nicci and her mom, Suzanne I was excited to help them hone their vision and create a day their family and friends would fully enjoy and never forget.

La Quinta Resort and Spa was the perfect venue for this wedding. It was a family favorite and the perfect balance of golf, luxury, amazing service and desert serenity. The ceremony took place on the property at the Legacy Villas intimate courtyard. The guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the transformed cart pad of the Dunes Golf Course with panoramic views of the course, mountains and palm trees shooting up into the clear desert sky. The reception was held in the Dunes Golf Club, with floor to ceiling windows so they could enjoy the scenery during dinner as well.

The modern stationary and clean monogram was designed and created by the groom, a graphic and web designer.  John also came up with the great idea of tying in the golf theme.  The tables were named after some of his favorite courses and the escort cards placed on golf tees. Nicci & John wanted a modern, classic, elegant wedding with fun, personal touches. From the custom cookie filled hospitality bags to the fun photo booth,  the late night snacks of sliders & french fries, not to mention the custom goodie bag candy bar, Nicci & John treated their guests to an incredible wedding weekend. There were so many thoughtful touches, personalized details and special moments.

Special thanks to Jennifer Gilmore Photography for sharing all the details with us. Congratulations N + J
