Nicoletta & Mirko never thought they would marry but one day he surprised her with a proposal that she couldn’t refuse. While browsing through wedding photos online, Nicoletta actually chose her photographer first, the amazing Jordan Voth before actually choosing her location. Nicoletta and Mirko are from Italy and Jordan from America so she said no matter what, he would photograph their wedding and that is when her journey to search for the perfect location in the U.S. began. The first thing they decided was they wanted to travel across America down the famous Route 66 and make stops throughout their journey. This road trip would then end at the destination for their Wedding. Nicoletta then contacted me immediately and I knew the moment she contacted me that I had to be part of this amazing journey.
We originally planned to have the wedding at the Valley of Fire. If anyone knows weather though in Nevada, August at the Valley of Fire is too hot to host a full wedding ceremony and reception outdoors. After going back and forth with the details we decided to scratch that option. Nicoletta brought up Palm Springs and seeing that it is also warm, I was a little hesitant to plan the wedding there with the same issue. Then Nicoletta found this adorable private home called Modern Homestead 1 in a very small town just outside of Palm Springs called Pioneertown, California. It was perfect. Knowing she wanted the whole Bohemian style, this venue couldn’t have been more perfect. There was a perfect patio to host a dinner of 20 guests with an open view of Mountains and Joshua trees.
Nicoletta wore a beautiful boho style Atelier Emè dress. Reality didn’t quite settle in until her gorgeous bouquet arrived. Immediately a tear rolled down her cheek when she saw this amazing arrangement that was created for her by Mylo Fleur. Between that and the amazing tablescape everything was coming together so perfectly. My favorite restaurant in Palm Springs Lulu’s Bistro came to cater the event. My favorite part of the evening was the lounge area. We did a complete bohemian style lounge with seating of rugs, poufs, couch, and tons of pillows from Planks and Patina. The guests moved to the area where their musician Natalie Gelman sang beautifully and the guests played the custom tambourines. It was a special moment surrounded by candle light, wine, and relaxed environment.
