meet d&c – to be wed @ the parker

hello everyone!  hope your week has been utterly splendid.  to say i’ve been busy lately would be the world’s greatest understatement.  seriously.  i have never been so busy as i have been the past few weeks!!  🙂  i happen to be finalizing preparations for the fabulous wedding of jessica + jeff, and am (wayyyyy) beyond excited for the big day!  i promise you will be blown away with how it all comes together.  🙂  how’s that for a teaser??

today’s post, however, is about another pair of clients i LOVE and adore: d&c.  from the first time d & i corresponded via email, i knew we would be the ideal planner/client fit.  d is ultra sweet (truly a blessing to me!), organized, creative (graphic designer) and stylish.  as if that weren’t enough, she’s also drop.dead.gorgeous!!  can you say former fiesta bowl princess and red carpet report for E! entertainment??  yeppp 😉  of course clay is a dashing counterpart; they are just too much wonderful in one couple. best of all, their relationship is a beautiful reflection of their own walks with the Lord.  i was so encouraged just chatting with them during our first consultation.  i can’t wait for their intimate, modern rustic wedding this fall at the parker palm springs.  i have been dying to work here for ages!!

here are some photos we  shot at our recent site visit & tasting…

funky furniture in the entryway.  the entire property was designed/styled by jonathan adler.

whimsical, random, and a bit tongue-in-cheek…  the parker doesn’t take itself too seriously.  🙂

an indoor firepit is a central attraction in the lobby lounge

lobster salad on slices of toasted brioche — delicious!

composed cobb salad with white & regular balsamic vinaigrette

slow roasted salmon will be one of the entrée options

cupcakes!!  clearly they wanted to make sure we got a thorough tasting of the available flavors.  🙂

some shots around the verdant property…

a cute shot of the couple in front of the reception room!

now while i typically do not showcase engagement photos on my blog, i simply MUST give you a glimpse at the amazing snaps captured by their photographer, harrison long.  i adore each and every one of them!!!

yep… it doesn’t get much better than that.  🙂

counting down the days until their big day!!!  d&c: you know i adore you both… SO.VERY.MUCH!!  thank you for always making our meetings a blast.  quoting nacho libre over lamb lollipops = my idea of a great time.  🙂

xoxo, angel
