Cover Reveal: Our December/January Cover Is for the Girls!

Oh, happy day! The December 2019/January 2020 issue of Exquisite Weddings is on newsstands today.

And on the cover? Only the happiest bride with the gal pals that hyped her up on her big day. Hey, that’s what bridesmaids are for!

Captured by Ryan Horban, the candid shot is from a moment at Ashley and Evan’s Real Wedding.

Planned and designed by the incredible Michelle Garibay of Michelle Garibay Events, the big day went down at the Avalon Hotel & Bungalows in Palm Springs.

And Garibay pulled out all of the design stops for the weekend-long celebration—palm fronds, wood accents, marble chargers, rose gold flatware, and mid-century mod chairs, plus maracas and a custom neon backdrop to boot.

But it was that chosen color scheme that helped make this wedding cover-worthy, with bridesmaid not only pulling off their own version of pink to plum but all also donned their individual gown designs effortlessly. Add to that that the bouquets were next-level, as Arrangements Floral + Party Design incorporated palms and air plants in each arrangement to make them totally unique and Palm Springs chic.

Still, we can’t ignore the cherry on top of all, that is the best-dressed squad got their bride grinning from ear to ear. To quote the new Mrs. herself, “remember that it’s about the people.”

There’s more real couple reflections and advice where that came from in our Fall 2019/Winter 2020 issue on newsstands now!
