The Kelly Wearstler-designed Viceroy Palm Springs (update: now the Avalon Hotel Palm Springs) is one of our favorite spots for a stylish desert wedding, and we can’t get enough of this couple’s elegant yet playful soirée. While Sabrina and Alexander reside in London, England, their romance began in California, so it only seemed fitting to them that they exchange their vows under the sun in Palm Springs as an homage to their love story.
From the bride, Sabrina: The minute I saw Alexander waiting for me at the altar, it was certainly the happiest moment of my life. Alexander and I wanted our wedding to be elegant, fun and romantic, and the breath-taking Viceroy was exactly what we had in mind for our intimate outdoor ceremony, especially since we wanted to be sure that there would be no rain!
The outdoor ceremony was shared with fifty of their closest friends and family from around the world, who showered the couple with heart-shaped confetti as they made their way down the aisle. The heart boutonnieres worn by Alexander and his groomsmen were handsewn by Sabrina’s mother (we love this alternative to the traditional floral bout!).
Sabrina & Alexander’s Wedding Music:
Processional Song: ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri
Recessional Song: ‘Home’ by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
First Dance: ‘You Are The Best Thing’ by Ray LaMontagne
