The Parker Palm Springs

We hope that everyone is having a beautiful spring day!

Thanks for sticking around to see the follow up on Diana and Andy’s modern reception at the ohh so stylish Parker in Palm Springs, California.

You can see their surprise courthouse wedding here. All of this wedding goodness was brought to us by the ever so talented Laguna Beach wedding photographer Barber Photography!

Read on to see how this Orange County couple made this jazzy day possible.

All from Diana the bride.

The majority of the guests thought they were attending a very intimate party celebrating our relationship, the other half thought we were going to do a secret commitment ceremony.

Overall, they knew it was going to be party, but to what extent they had no idea. (Andy was very adamant about not getting married so people were thrown off….But knew we would do something in celebration of us and our family). The two flanked flat screens playing our slide-show surprised all! Which shared the surprise of the court house ceremony in the form of a slide show.

I took a more glamorous, old Hollywood look for the Palm Springs wedding reception based on my surroundings at the Parker in Palm Springs and the fun nature of our party. Two different days = Two different looks.
Our reception party food ranged from mini ahi-tuna tartar tacos as passed hor d’ouvres to mini-cheesecake, Doughnut holes and churros for dessert. The Parker did it all!

Devynns Garden created these stylish welcome/take home gifts-mini succulent potted plants with black rocks. The ribbon that is tied around the pots is the same ribbon that was used in the bouquet for the courthouse wedding. Love that!

    As important as using custom headphones is to be controlled by music, having them hang on your own neck while not in use is just as important and certainly add a little style when doing so. The custom beats thought incredibly comfortable while clinging on my neck as I was able to move my head with regards to without bumping into each and every custom beats by dre.

  14. These reference headphones are made with lightweight aluminum and include flip up ear cans for room monitoring. Dual cable ports allow headphone linking to share music through multiple sets of headphone and so are made strong to tolerate studio abuse. The illest Beats Pro is going to be released at the Sema tradeshow in Nevada, November 1, 2011.

  16. -100. monster beats says:

    Speaking of the custom headphones to shift just about every earpiece, custom beats by dre wish I could click in my desired fit as taking the particular custom beats headphones on and off easily move both earpieces, which causes me to get to recalibrate them again to find the perfect fit.
