Rancho Las Palmas Wedding | Nick & Desiree

You never know where you will meet the love of your life. For Desiree and Nick it just so happened that their fate would align during a late night trip to their local gym. Desiree was having trouble with her machine and Nick was there to help. They hit it off right away and started spending time together.

Desiree was trying her best not to get to excited about their upcoming vacation to Indio, Ca. She just knew that Nick was going to propose. It would the perfect time. However, Nick knew this and wanted the proposal to be a surprise. So, the week before their vacation Desiree got off work at the hospital late at night and he convinced an exhausted and cranky Desiree to take a break and go watch the sunset with him on the cliffs of beautiful Laguna Beach. Nick was clever in his proposal and bought custom dog tags for their two dogs, one that said “Will You” and the other “Marry Me.”  Surprised and excited, Desiree obviously agreed.

Having an idea of the cost of weddings in Orange County, they decided on a whim to look at some site options while on vacation not thinking that they would actually book anything. However, they ended up falling in love with the first site they found, the luxurious Rancho Las Palmas resort in Rancho Mirage.

On the day of the wedding, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was an undoubtedly gorgeous day. However it was scorching hot at 105°, fortunately everyone was a trooper and kept their cool in the intense heat. Desiree was a quick and considerate thinker; she moved the cocktail hour and reception inside so that everyone would be more comfortable. Despite the climbing temperature, Desiree look absolutely radiant in her white strapless gown and pearls. Her bridesmaids were also incredibly beautiful in their long light pink dresses. Nick was relaxed and dapper, with handsome groomsmen by his side.

The whole setting was a perfectly tranquil as they prepared to say their “I Do’s.” It was a beautiful ceremony complete with a sailor knot feature, where the Desiree and Nick literally tied the knot. There was a thoughtful and heartfelt prayer that incorporated all of their guests in a promise to support and encourage Nick and Desiree’s marriage.

The lovely exchange of vows was followed by a reception that was full of joy and love. Everyone gathered inside happily away from the heat where they celebrated all night long. The room was illuminated with pink, yellow, and purple lights. Desiree put a lot of thought into the little details, from a sweet gobo on the wall to cute signs and even a Thank You tag on every fork. The candy bar was plentiful and flip-flops provided comfortable dancing so everyone could dance the night away. The music didn’t stop, the shots were numerous and laughter was contagious and memorable. Everyone there, including the parents and their friends were living it up. There may be a few incriminating photos found throughout the reception of trips and falls and incorrigible flirting.
