When spring arrives it certainly touches everything it comes into contact with. The gorgeous wedding of Jenny & Mikey was subtle, romantic and fresh, almost like a grown-up version of a fairy tale that took place at The Cree Estate in Palm Springs, California.

The soft sunshine, feminine flower detail and delicate decorative luxuries outlined the theme of the day and gave this celebration a real sense of spring flair. Jenny wanted the wedding to reflect their personality as a couple and therefore opted for a chic white colour palette with touches of rustic and gold elements. A 180 guests joined to celebrate with the couple as they excitedly said ‘I do’. Jenny was a dashing vision of elegance with her golden locks and glowing visage and her bridesmaids looked dashing in their cute summer dresses. The warm weather certainly played along and believe it or not, by the end of the evening the party continued in the swimming pool; dresses and all. It was certainly an evening to remember and Laura Goldenberger was there to capture these wonderful memories.

Tell us your story.

Mikey and I met the summer of my senior year in college at Pepperdine University via mutual friends. We instantly hit it off and hung out the entire night. The next day Mikey left for a summer internship in London. We kept in contact all summer and when he returned in August, we started dating right away and the rest is history.

How did he propose?

Mikey proposed 6 years on the dot from the day we met, which also happened to be my 27th birthday. He took me to the top of the Shangri-La Hotel in Santa Monica for drinks and to watch the sunset. The rooftop bar is a place we both love, because it has a beautiful 180 degree view of the ocean from Palos Verdes to Malibu. Believe it or not, I was not expecting it. It was a Tuesday and I was so rushed from working late, I must have missed all the signs trying to get home on time.
… as the sun started setting on a perfectly clear night, he asked me to marry him. It was simple and perfect, which is exactly what I wanted.
We wanted an all white wedding that was timeless where rustic meets chic with hints of gold.
…at the end of the night the guests, including our wedding party, family, Mikey and I all ended up in the huge pool on the property. Wedding dress and suites all went in, everyone was having the time of their lives. I ended up jumping off the diving board on my dad’s shoulders in to the huge pool along with about 80 other people.It was the most fun I have ever had in my life. Don’t worry my wedding dress was fine the next day. We had it washed and its still perfect!
