Destination Wedding,  Gina + Tom

Omni Rancho Las Palmas Wedding

Omni Rancho Las Palmas Wedding

Omni Rancho Las Palmas Wedding

Jennifer and Ryan met through twitter, all because of their love of Seattle. It may have taken some time for them to meet in person, but I think we would all agree, they are a perfect match.

Since Jennifer is originally from Chicago,  Ryan from Northern California, and most family and friends are living all over the country, they decided to have a destination wedding. Jennifer recently attended a work conference at the Las Palmas and as she watched the sun rise over the palms from her balcony.  She knew instantly that this is where they should have the wedding. Sunny, warm Palm Springs in December could not be more perfect.

The day went off without a hitch. Surrounded by the best group of family and friends, Jennifer and Ryan’s wedding day is one everyone will be talking about forever. They day started with pure relaxation. The ladies at the spa and cabana-ing. The guys hung out and played some pool. Jennifer and Ryan chose to have an intimate first look by themselves. Followed by a romantic ceremony on the green with some of sweetest vows we have ever heard. Officiated by none other than Jennifer’s brother, Kevin. Who did an outstanding job. Then everyone moved over to the sunrise terrace for dinner and to dance the night away.

I am lucky enough to have known Jennifer for a long time. Our father’s were fire fighters together and friends. She babysat me, and we took family backpacking trips out to Wyoming. I always looked up to her, beautiful on the inside and out, and the best sense of humor and positive outlook on life. When you are around Jennifer, you will always be laughing and smiling.

Obviously enough could not be said about these two awesome people. We could not be more happier for them both and were so happy to have been there! Enough talking already, and let’s get to the pictures 😉

Jennifer + Ryan, we wish you nothing but a happily ever after!

So Much Love, Gina + Tom
