Two modelesque grooms, Old Hollywood glamour, and The Parker Palm Springs made for a perfectly swoon-worthy wedding. Seriously, if you’ve ever needed a fainting couch, it’s now! Jonathan and Marc’s Palm Springs wedding may have stuck to a black and white color palette, but the celebration was overflowing with charisma. From the glam hotel setting to the middle of the desert, Rouxby marvelously captured Jonathan and Marc’s spirit as a couple in every frame.
Jonathan and Marc
The Parker Palm Springs, Palm Springs, California
We wrote our own vows, which made the ceremony very personal, emotional, and entertaining all at the same time. That really set the tone for the entire party afterwards, which culminated in a “midnight swim” where we jumped in the pool with many of our guests.
We wanted to get married at a destination that balanced great weather and fun personality. We knew the Parker Palm Springs was a perfect fit for our wedding because it combined high design with smile factor. The Parker’s eclectic, irreverent, and iconic mid-century décor spoke to us, and provided the laid-back, comfortable yet quirky vibe we were looking for.
Jonathan‘s dad told us the night before the wedding that we could either have the wedding go perfectly, or we could have fun, but we would not be able to have both. In the end, we actually did get both, but probably only because we were in the mindset to focus on the fun part and not worry about what might not go exactly according to plan.
We wanted our wedding feel cool and classic, but not too fancy or serious. And let’s face it: we’re two grooms, so we did not want anything pretty or floral or feminine. We went for an “Old Hollywood” theme in black and white, which suited our Palm Springs backdrop perfectly.
