Melissa and Adam's Wedding at Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage California.  April in the desert southwest, I mean does the weather GET any better?  Not for Melissa and Adams Palm Springs celebration!!  The weather was spectacular.  Perfect.  The sun shone brightly, the girls looked stunning and the gentlemen were so very handsome.  

The ceremony was held on the golf course with the stunning Coachella Valley mountains as the backdrop.  Artisan Events put together a beautiful Chuppah using bamboo for the frame and gorgeous pink and fuchsia peonies along with succulents and artistically interwoven colorful wires.  So unique and interesting!  

Melissa's dress was unique.  She had a vision for what she wanted her dress to be and was not able to find it, so instead she found the perfect skirt, then scoured the shops and boutiques of New York City until she found the perfect top.  Originally she wanted a T-shirt to go along with the skirt... ( Think Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City )  But the top she eventually found matched the skirt perfectly, so the outfit was perfect!  Well, it was once she found the sparkly, sky high Manolo Blahnik pumps.  

Adam was looking so stylish in his custom made suit and white shoes.  

After the fantastic ceremony, everyone moved to the Sunrise Terrace for cocktails where DJ James Gonzalez of Music Media Entertainment played some fun music, the atmosphere was just perfect on the lovely, balmy spring evening.  Then everyone headed into the ballroom for dinner provided by the chef at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas.  Then the speeches...  oh the speeches.  There was not a dry eye in the room, mostly because everyone was laughing so hysterically!  Then DJ James REALLY got the room rocking.  He can really read a room and the dance floor was full all night, everyone had such a great time!
