Marci and Joel got married at the Historic Casa Cody Inn in Palm Springs on a blazing hot September day! Marci planned their day herself, while Joel designed all of the invitations and paper goods. After vows were exchanged, guests celebrated poolside under strands of paper lanterns and bistro lights with palms towering overhead. The Inn is a historic site because it is the oldest operating hotel in Palm Springs. It was founded in the 1920s by Hollywood's Harriet Cody (cousin to Buffalo Bill). The adobe hacienda B&B where Charlie Chaplin was a frequent guest is nestled against the majestic San Jacinto mountains. Rock This Moment captured their beautiful, intimate celebration!
An intimate Palm Springs wedding at the oldest operating hotel in the city
Joel and Marci met at Sears where they both worked. Although Sears went down hill over the next 9.5 years as stocks plummeted and investors bailed, Joel & Marci’s relationship continued to thrive. They went on exotic vacations to places like New Zealand where Joel would participate in Iron Man triathlons and New York City where Marci was creating a buzz in the fashion community. They adopted a dog, moved in together and then while on vacation in Hawaii Joel proposed to Marci. With Joel on one knee and the rain pouring down on both of them she said “yes.” The clouds then quickly passed by, sunshine began to warm the landscape and a giant rainbow appeared. This was a sign of true love. They then went to a local Del Taco and began planning their dream wedding, scribbling out details on the backside of a Coors Light box that Joel was using as a hat earlier in the day. – Ryan, Rock This Moment
