Forgive the pun, but this Palm Springs wedding blows all others out of the water. In fact, it was so wonderful the couple made a two-day celebration of it, complete with — wait for it — synchronized swimmers. Also, this couple has some of the cutest darn wedding favors we’ve ever seen. Each guest received a pre-stamped envelope to encourage him or her to send a letter to a loved one. Adorable, no? We owe endless thanks to our very own Blue Label member Souder Photography for sharing and to Sitting in a Tree for designing such fabulous fête!

Instead of the traditional day after brunch that some couples choose to host for out of town guests, Kristen and Don had a food truck serving burgers!

  • The photos from Kristin and Don’s wedding turned out great! It was a wonderful event. Can you credit Aqualillies (the synchronized swimmers) with the photo, or in the post?
