Whoa… now that’s a bouquet! And one that totally gives off the bohemian, overgrown vibe bride Nicole told us about. She and Chris based their entire wedding design off of the beauty of the Palm Desert, where Nicole is originally from. That meant pinks, blues, creams, and light greens throughout. With the help of Bustle Events + photography by Joielala their desert vision was brought to life.

Chris and I both agreed that our first priority was that the venue had to be outdoors. We also liked La Quinta because we live in Brooklyn and have so many out of town guests traveling (about 150 from out of town); therefore, you are able to be at the resort and literally never leave. No driving and lots to do. We had a pool party in our suite on Friday. Chris loves tennis and played tennis with his groomsmen on the wedding day. We hosted several other events on the property including our rehearsal dinner, golf and brunch.

Nicole says having Bustle Events as a planner was so helpful during an 18-month engagement that could easily turn into constantly stressing about the details. She recommends having a planner or at least someone by your side on the day of to help it all go smoothly. Lastly, remember that this day is meaningful for you + your spouse’s families too!

Cheers guys! Check out Nicole’s Pinterest board for more… It’s seriously inspiring!
