Ashley & Ryan, Private Estate Palm Desert



You know when you plan a wedding for your couple and you instantly click with your bride and can tell that you’re going to become friends after their wedding is over? That is exactly how wedding planning with Ashley (and her amazing mom) went! She was the sweetest from our very first consultation all the way through pulling out of her original venue TWO MONTHS prior to her wedding date and really trusting me that I would not let her and Ryan down! That’s right, Ashley and Ryan made the hard decision to pull out of their wedding venue due to COVID regulations two months prior to their wedding date and then the real work begun to find a new property that would best suit them and their vision. Well, we did it! We found a brand new venue in Bermuda Dunes and what a dream it was!! We transformed a tournament size tennis court into a dreamy fully draped reception with a HUGE white dance floor! Florals by Jenny did an amazing job of mixing just enough blush to Ashley’s neutral color palette and we can’t forget about her table top details because OMG! Gold rimmed chargers, rose gold flatware, and a pink shimmer napkin made their design pop! Their guests had more than enough space to move around the entire backyard of the venue and Ashley and Ryan were nothing but smiles the entire day! To say that I was sad to leave this wedding was truly an understatement! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Ashley and Ryan Savala, we wish you the best as a newly married couple! Enjoy these breathtaking photos by the mega talented Brett Hickman!
