Kristine & Colby had a magical destination wedding in Indian Wells, CA. The fun started Thursday at the Miramonte Resort and Spa when all the guests checked in. The intimate feel of the hotel allowed the guests to gather frequently and a lot of terrific time was spent at the resort pool!
Their Saturday wedding was held at the beautiful St. Francis Church in La Quinta, CA, and their ceremony was presided over by a good friend from Notre Dame. These fabulous photos were taken by Albert Lewis, Mulberry Photography.
Guests then departed for the Vintage Country Clubin Indian Wells, one of the valleys most exclusive and beautiful clubs. After cocktails onthe patio, guests moved into the glass walled dining room overlooking the mountains, where the staff at the Vintage served them beautifully. Beautiful tables designed by Celebrations of Joy and Arrangements Floral & Design were covered with a gold shimmer table topper and topped with equisite florals – re-purposed from the flowers decor from the church! A great way to go green and save $$!!
They danced the night away, and then Colby and Kristine were sent on their way with a sparkler salute. They climbed into a bright red vintage car for a departure to a surprise hotel - no one was to find them for 24 hours!
