Palm Springs Wedding: Felix & Eric
February 14, 2015
Eric proposed to Felix at The Top of the Mark, which is at the “top” of the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco. It was Gay Pride weekend, and they were taking one of their regular weekend excursions in the city. They usually stayed in a nice hotel, did some great shopping, had drinks, and enjoyed a great dinner. Felix suspected nothing.
They were enjoying the view when Eric asked if Felix was happy. Felix immediately told him that he couldn’t be happier with the life they had created together. He looked away for a split second, and all of a sudden a beautiful Tiffany box was on the table and Eric proposed. Felix was stunned, shocked, and over the moon all at the same moment. After he said yes, he couldn’t stop crying for the next 3 hours.
When it came to selecting a venue, the grooms wanted a place that would capture the style and whimsy that is Palm Springs. Spencer’s on the Mountain fit the bill. An iconic tennis club with a rich architectural history, and Hollywood background; it is a venue like none other with both an Events Manager and staff second to none.
Planning was a breeze thanks to Events Manager Leslie. From the food selection to the table layout, she made everything a breeze. While the venue is a facility where one purchases a package, it is known for their food and Leslie is known for her attention to detail and expertise. Felix and Eric know food, as do their guests. The venue ensured that every bit was amazing and exceeded all expectations.
The wedding was a once-in-a-lifetime gathering, with both grooms’ families as well as their closest friends. Seeing everyone, taking pictures, mingling, and laughing were their favorite memories of their day. They joined their guests during the cocktail hour, they had the chance to see everyone, and still share a private moment together at the end of the night.
Felix and Eric strongly recommend combining a great venue with the right photographer to ensure that you enjoy all of the things you lived, and those you missed. They remind couples that the day flies by. They believe that first and foremost your wedding should be a party – a celebration of your love. Have great drinks, great food, and a fun vibe. Lastly, they remind others that a wedding doesn’t have to be perfect – just fun!
