Wedding Chronicles: Part One

Some very good clients, who are also good friends, recently asked me to plan their destination wedding in Palm Springs. I quickly, and politely, declined.

Readers, you may recall that I created an Indian Canyons wedding for some dear clients a couple of years ago. It was a beautiful affair, which went off without a hitch, but I simply could not be responsible for another client’s big day. It’s just not what I do best.

I did, however, agree to design the wedding. My design associate, Keith Fortner, will be creating the flowers. (Keith was a florist in Manhattan for many years and brings his talents to many of our events). We called in the fabulous Tamara Bolton of Sensorium Event Productions to orchestrate the rest.

The wedding will be taking place at my clients’ beautiful estate in the Palm Springs’ Movie Colony neighborhood, just two doors from the famed Frank Sinatra house.

For the decor, I’ve selected a palette of turquoise, grass green, gold, black and white. (My favorites!) The linens for the cocktail are a fabulous retro pattern inspired by Pucci. (I’m in love!)

Last week, Keith and I paid a trip to the LA Flower District, and selected a fabulously-unusual array of flowers. The look can best be described as exotic, with deep rich colors and an assortment of textures. One of the grooms is from South Africa, so we are making sure to incorporate that country’s native protea flower into the mix.

The wedding is coming up over Memorial Day weekend, and I can’t wait! I have my new Trina Turk outfit all picked out and I’m excited to share in the magical day. Love. Beautifully!
