When Darryl wrote me letting me know that he and his partner of 17 years needed a wedding planner, I was over the moon. Number 1 was that I get the privilege of planning yet another same sex wedding and number 2 it was yet another step for same sex marriages around the country – another couple would join the statistics of being allowed to get married in the US. I was delighted to be planning their wedding at Escena Golf Club in Palm Springs
Juan Carlos had dreamt of what he wanted for his wedding. He loved black and white and had been saving the pictures of what the wedding should look like. My Little Flower Shop of Palm Springs got his vision and the room was filled with beautiful sunflowers.
Darryl told me that dancing meant a lot to them so it was important for them to have a great DJ. I suggested Lets Party LA and the y loved Bryan the owner of the company and invited him to be their DJ. I suggested Bryan Hudson Photography and they also loved him. He captured their love.
The big day arrived. Darryl and Juan Carlos woke up at the Hard Rock Hotel to a fabulous breakfast. Bryan Hudson met them for a very fun photo shoot around the hotel. I wanted to keep them and all the guests inside as much as possible due it being 100 degrees.
Their ceremony officiated by their friend Raymond was beautiful, funny and moving and expressed the love each one had for each other. Guests told me they were moved to tears. Darryl and Juan Carlos made their grand entrance to HAPPY and hugged and greeted each of their guests. Each guest were so happy to be part of a marriage so beautiful.
