Palm Springs Wedding from Perfectly Made Weddings

Palm Springs will forever be a favorite destination of mine. Being as I am a total Cali girl, growing up with the beach, the mountains, the dessert, and all the fabulous weather all year round, this wedding is a total love. It’s that magical combo of sunshine and glamour which really brings me to this fabulous destination. That is why today I am overjoyed with this gorgeous Palm Springs wedding.  It has all the details that has my heart in total overdrive.  I say all of this because their heartfelt, desert nuptials have me trying to dig up adjectives worthy of their sweet ceremony and cozy reception – but I keep falling short of words that will really do it all justice. Thankfully, the images from Jennifer Yount Photography can express it all.

This couple has seriously stolen my heart. I’m in love with them for so many different reasons, but mainly because they seem to be the type of people you want to be around all the time. I have been part of the planning of weddings for many couples, but I have to admit, I have never seen a kind of love like this one. Not just love between the two love birds, (oh THAT is just a bucket full of unconditional love), but the love that is between the couple and their guests. That love is out of this world.  I have never seen such love and joy shared with all that were present. I myself felt like I was part of the family as everyone was so open with their love. It was wonderful! I had the pleasure to help plan and coordinate this lovely wedding.  Perfectly Made Weddings, together with the sweet and fun loving couple, created a unforgettable day. Working with some incredible vendors, this gorgeous wedding had it all. Set at the beautiful Le Vallauris Restaurant  located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, California, this wedding brought together traditions with a touch of  simple chic.  The couple really wanted to incorporate Jewish traditions into their wedding.  From the Tisch, to the challah blessing, the traditions were done so beautifully. The bride wanted something simple yet elegant for her wedding day. A  beautiful chuppah with stunning drapery and white florals was the center of it all at their ceremony. White flowers, candles, and twinkle lights decorated the reception.   Besides all the amazing ambiance set for this lovely couple and their wedding, the whole day was full of energy. From the moment the guests arrived, to the last guest leaving, there was constant joy, laughter, and energy. My favorite part? In all honesty, I really enjoyed each and every moment of this wedding. Each element brought it’s own unique and special detail, which was simply amazing. I have to say that this has been one of the best weddings I have been part of. Judy and Rob together with their guests really made it effortless. The location, the food, the decor, and all the gorgeous details were just made for these two.
Congratulations to Judy and Rob!

Fairmont Newport Beach Wedding from Perfectly Made Weddings and Events

Being such a hopeless romantic who adores weddings and all the love that comes with it, had the pleasure to help plan and coordinate the most beautiful wedding. The bride and groom with an amazing eye for design, concept, and colors, together with Perfectly Made Weddings, created a total romantic feel wedding with a touch of tradition.

Set at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel in Newport Beach California, sweet love and romance was seen throughout the day. The ceremony took place at the private lawn which featured lush greenery, a beautifully decorated gazebo, and four tables set up with a traditional Sofreh Aghd.  The ballroom transformed into a romantic get away with its lush colors of deep red and purple, gorgeous flowers, tall mirrors, and stunning chandeliers.  The beautiful room featured a ten piece live band, a traditional Persian tea station, and a exquisite dinner and dessert spread. A wedding that combined tradition and culture with all the romantic elements, creating an elaborate look. Simply amazing.

Zaven Photography captured all the love and elegance.  Get ready to fall in love!

What a Persian Bride Wants

On their wedding day, some brides want to share their family traditions with their closest  friends and family. What a great way to celebrate what you love with your loved ones! We are going to take a look at one popular tradition that the Persian Bride loves to share.

  • The Sofreh Aghd:  “Aghd” translates to the legal ceremony of the Iranian wedding. “Sofreh” means spread.  So, the “Sofreh Aghd”  is the wedding spread which is present at the wedding ceremony. It normally is  an  eleaborate  table full of flowers, candles, and other items which symbolize different qualities that the couple would like to bring into their new life together. For instance, one item is honey which symbolizes the sweetness of life.  Here are some of my favorite “sofreh aghd” displays.
Here is what a soft color palette of light pink and white can bring to a wedding ceremony. This perfect combo delievers true love.   So romantic!

Purple and Silver bring elegance and charm to this wedding spread.

Take a look at the little lamp and bowl of silver eggs. This is so glamourous!

Instead of one large table, this bride has four tables displayed for the Sofreh Aghd. It works really well. Beautiful! (Sofreh Aghd designed by Elegant Sofreh Design)

Here is a closer look at the details. I love the sugar-cubed birds! So cute!
