What a wonderful wedding, and it certainly was beyond the sea — as far away from the sea as you can get and still be in California. Palm Springs is one of my very favorite California destination wedding locations, any time of year. For this, an early autumn wedding, the temperature was hot, the music was hotter — and the bride and groom and all of their guests were RED HOT!
We set up our instruments and sound equipment inside the enclosed bar (picture an indoor/outdoor pool house), with huge doors opening onto the pool. The bride and groom, wedding party and some of the guests were seated at a table that ran the length of the pool. Other tables were set up in the pool area, as were dessert stations later in the evening.
Guests ate, drank, roamed around and listened to the soft, hip, elegant and SWINGING music. We are geniuses at not being overly loud, which is an important thing to be able to do in order to comply with the strict noise ordinances in Palm Springs.
The lighting was spectacular. The videographers were flown in from Canada for the weekend. Another wonderful, A-Team wedding.
All weddings should be this lovely, easygoing and sophisticated.
