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.

Please enjoy the photos below from Jordan Voth.

Springs Preserve Wedding

02Bride&Groom-99

I typically don’t check email during events but one particular wedding I had downtime waiting for vendors to arrive so checking my email I was surprised and excited by a bride.  Her phone number was a 517 area code which meant either she went to Michigan State or lived in Lansing area but either way I knew I had to be part of her wedding day.  Kristin had not only lived in Lansing but also was an alumni of my alma mator.  To add the icing on the cake, after speaking to Kristin we realized not that we had friends in common but her fiance Regis was actually a college friend of mine.  I was so happy the two of them met and fell in love.  I remember thinking this is fate, I have to be part of their beautiful wedding day and to my luck they wanted me to be part of it.

The wedding took place in July which is typically not the ideal time for an outdoor wedding in Las Vegas but a dream of Kristin so we made it work.  The entire wedding took place at the rustic Springs Preserve.  The ceremony was held in the Garden Arbor.  It is the perfect romantic space for a group of around 50 guests.  Kristin and Regis weren’t the only two uniting in the ceremony but both Kristin’s daughter Kaelyn and Regis’s son mini Regis were gaining parents.  The four of them held a special sand unity to show the two families become one.  Following the ceremony guests were directed to the cocktail and reception space.  Here they enjoyed cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres as the bridal party took photos around the gorgeous site.  The dinner was an amazing display of Thyme Roasted Chicken, Roasted Pork Loin, Braised Asparagus & Carrots, Pommee Puree, and Fruit & Chocolate Mousse Cups by Divine Events.  After dinner and cake cutting, the guests were out on the dance floor dancing the night away.  I had an opportunity to chat with both Kristin and catch up finally with Regis throughout the evening.  It was truly a blessing to see how far both Regis and I grew up since our college days.  What a beautiful couple and gorgeous event this turned out to be.  I need to add in that Kristin is very creative and most of the decor was handmade by her.  The photos below by the amazing Elizabeth Le show the true love inspired by this couple:

 

 

Thank you Kristin & Regis for trusting me with your day!  Also, thank you to our amazing Creative Team:
