We’re pretty confident that Katarina and Ryan’s wedding at The Frank Sinatra Estate upheld and honored the sophisticated, classy, and fun-loving legacy of Ol’ Blue Eyes! With the expert help of Nicole Osibodu of Pink Pineapple Event Design, they created a glamorous yet laid-back event that featured an outdoor cocktail lounge with leather couches and cafe lights alongside yard games and a scrumptious donut bar to complete their breakfast for dinner theme. They also used vibrant botanical florals and palm leaves to add fun pops of color and infuse a classic Palm Springs feel. The overall vibe was fun, inviting, and energetic, as was evident by the flash mob that ended with a groomsman thrown in the pool! Sebastien Bicard Photography did an amazing job capturing the unforgettable moments of this glamorous wedding weekend, especially Katarina and Ryan’s day-after sunset portraits in Joshua Tree.
Katarina and Ryan
The Frank Sinatra Estate, Palm Springs, California
After touring multiple beautiful country clubs and hotels, nothing jumped out at us and there were too many restrictions. Either we could only hire from their vendors, cater in-house, and/or couldn’t bring in anything from outside — it just wasn’t us. After looking at a couple of estates in Greater Palm Springs, The Frank Sinatra Estate was our immediate choice. I mean, come on, it’s Frank’s house!
We wanted the vibe to be formally informal. The estate is very reminiscent of the “Rat Pack” days — a perfect blend of sophistication, class, and fun. Our guests dressed in formal attire. We decorated with gold sequined linens, high boys, white leather chase lounges, and sparkling market lights to create an outdoor cocktail lounge setting. The splashes of pink cocktails, green palm leaves, lawn games, food stations, and a mini donut bar added the perfect contrast. Our goal was for everyone to have a blast!
One of the highlights was when the wedding party’s flash mob broke out into our choreographed routine. It took everyone by surprise! To top it off, one of the groomsmen and the best man were tossed into Frank Sinatra’s pool during the dance, which no one was expecting except for the guys.
Sebastien Bicard Photography was a dream to work with! He seemed to do the work of four people at one time. He caught moments that seemed impossible from the location with all that was going on and time constraints. He was the most professional photographer and gave us exactly the style and shots we were looking for, plus some. We really don’t think he had any time to eat or breathe for the entire time with the amount of photos he captured!
