Hey gang, I’m starting a new weekly post called “For Real Fridays”. Each Friday I will feature a real wedding that I love. This week is a fantastic couple and dear friends, Mimi and Michael. They had a gorgeous wedding in Palm Springs, CA. One of my favorite features of the wedding was the venue, the Smoke Tree Ranch. This place was awesome! Felt like we were on the set of Dirty Dancing, which is appropriate because the bride is a dancer, but mostly because we were at a resort that had all sorts of activities built in (like lawn bowling!) and each guest room was actually it’s own little house. It was so cute and such a great way for all of the guests to have a WEEKEND of fun! The wedding had tons of DIY elements and personal touches, which of course was my favorite part! And how beautiful are these two people? Seriously stunning! Here’s some pictures and favorite details, plus credits and info below. Congrats to Mimi and Michael on such a wonderful day and wonderful marriage to match! True Love.
