Real Wedding: Elizabeth and Michael

Sunday, October 24, 2010































My apologies that La Petite Coquin was dark yesterday-I hope this delicious Palm Springs wedding will make it up to you all! And really, who could resist a party this playful and charming?

Photographed by Nicole Hill Gerulat, Elizabeth and Michael's gorgeous Palm Springs wedding at the Parker Hotel was featured last month on Style Me Pretty. Something tells me this gorgeous bride might have been influenced by this photo, featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, don't you agree?

Not only was Nicole her photographer, she also designed all the paper goods and tied Michael's logo design into the overall look of the event. The gorgeous pink and yellow peonies were arranged by Megan Fickling of La Partie Events, who also ran point as day-of coordinator.

Elizabeth wore a stunning cap-sleeved gown by Christos and petal pink pumps from J.Crew that matched her peony bouquet to perfection. Of course, it's those amazing beaded cap sleeves that steal the show-the dress was nothing less than sublime. After a beautiful outdoor ceremony, guests headed to the ballroom lawn where mercury glass and vintage pink votives gave the mid-century modern decor a shot of romantic femininity. An absolutely beautiful way to start the week!
