La Quinta Resort & Spa had today’s couple immediately embracing the idea of saying I Do under the desert stars. The groom’s golf obsession also helped drive the decision. Orchestrating what moved from an intimate destination wedding to one boasting a guest list of 170 was Vanessa Van Wiren of Alchemy Fine Events. The simple elegance oozes from each image Shauna Heron captured. From the overflowing white orchids to the cooper, white and greenery medley that plays throughout the reception – hello, ceiling installation – Arrangements Designs and Vanessa created visually stunning elements that spoke softly but delivered a wow statement.
