Whitney Welch, 33, may have woken up with laryngitis on her wedding day, but lip-syncing her vows to her husband, Nicholas Kirmse, 38, while the officiant read them aloud is still one of her favorite moments from the ceremony. The Las Vegas–based couple have been together since their first blind date, which was set up by a friend in 2015. Finance VP Nic, who’s originally from Berlin, proposed to Whitney, an attorney, at the Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs, which is where they returned to say “I do” in front of 65 friends and family members.
“We love the Old Hollywood vibe in Palm Springs and wanted a destination wedding that was still accessible to our friends in Las Vegas.”
“Choosing black and white as our color scheme was a no-brainer for a formal winter wedding.”
