Black and Gold Palm Springs Wedding

Palm Springs is known for it’s glam, Old Hollywood style and it’s bright, sunny days so this wedding seems to practically be the epitome of the city.  The groomsmen looked dapper in their grey and black suits with a classic black bowtie while the bride looked absolutely stunning in her fit and flare wedding dress with a trendy black belt.  Her accessories, between the Kate Spade black and gold shoes to the statement earrings, were spot on and created a glamorous yet understated look.  The simple gold and citrus colored details throughout the wedding were the perfect compliments to this desert chic night.  Cynthia shared their very special proposal story with us as well:

Kurt had just graduated from the fire academy, and we were having a grad party in his honor at my uncle’s house.  His parents were there and it was their first time meeting my family.  After we feasted on a traditional assyrian meal (which was enough to feed an army), Kurt stood at the front of the room and asked for our attention.  He began to thank our families for their love and support and explained to them how this journey had brought us closer.  He then signaled me to come over.  I figured he wanted me by his side for moral support as he bravely stood in front of my 7 aunts and uncles, their spouses, my 14 cousins, my mom, nana and his parents…but then he turned his attention to me.  He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!  I was beyond surprised.  While overcome with emotion, I managed to squeeze out a “YES.”  I felt absolutely shocked and could not control my tears. Everyone was screaming and cheering around us! I remember staring into Kurt’s eyes and praying, silently thanking God for answering yet another prayer. God has given us so many reasons to be thankful.  I was so choked up with gratitude I couldn’t even hear what Kurt was saying to me.  It was a beautiful moment, I felt so much love.  That feeling filled the room, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place!  My Nana told me that in her 84 years she had never seen someone propose before, she was so very happy. This moment was caught on 10 different iPhones and will be forever in my memory.
