Lauren & Chris

When Lauren and Chris met six years ago it wasn’t love at first sight; she thought he was too nice to date and Chris kept referring to Lauren as “Erin.” But eventually he got it right! Six years later Chris popped the question amid a candlelit room filled with rose petals. Palm Springs was the natural choice for their wedding, as the couple has spent many a weekend in the desert town. The couple chose the Colony Palms Hotel because it felt like their own private estate. As a nod to Palm Springs’ heydays in the glamorous ’40s and ’50s, Chris and Lauren brought in touches like a cigar and whiskey bar, an escort table decorated with antique suitcases and vintage Palm Springs postcards, family photos and a six-piece band led by James King, the lead horn player from Fitz and the Tantrums. And picking the colors? Easy. Coral was always Lauren’s favorite and while sitting by the pool, she noticed how great her coral painted toenails accented the blue water.
