Richard and Desiree met over four years ago while Des was working at a previous job. Her company was a customer of his and every time he would come in, her heart would skip a beat. Eventually she mustered some courage to talk to him and it paid off! After about two and half years into their relationship, Rich asked Des to marry him with the ring of her dreams.
Desiree had long been pouring over wedding magazines and blogs. When they got engaged, the wheels were already turning about the style of their wedding. The day they walked into the Luxe Hotel to see this potential wedding venue, everything just clicked. Right away it felt right and they knew this was where we wanted to get married. Their color palette of blush, champagne, and cream fell into place to create the romantic, understated, elegant, and clean feel they were looking for and was only amplified by the serene setting the Luxe Hotel provides. Florals were a big part of achieving Desiree’s
“vision,” using cream flowers and choosing only a few types of flowers to make an impact. She gives a nod to their groomsmen who looked so handsome in their gray tuxes and pink gingham bow ties that coordinated with the bridesmaid dresses and her pink peony bouquet. Des wanted to incorporate her family history into the day and her bouquet was the canvas: it was wrapped in trim from her mother’s wedding gown and adorned with a bracelet and pin belonging to her late maternal grandmother.
Mazel tov, Desiree and Richard!
