DEVIN + KEVIN • PALM SPRINGS, CA
Tropical Inspired Palm Springs Wedding

Jan 23, 2017

If Devin and Kevin’s tropical inspired Palm Springs wedding is any indication of how 2017 is going to go down – this is basically going to be the best year ever!!! Their wedding this past weekend at Spencer’s Restaurant in Palm Springs was one of the most fun times we’ve ever had, especially with the wedding party – they have a beautifully wonderful, supportive and hilarious group of friends!

Their love story is ten years in the making, after meeting in high school. Throughout college and early adulthood, these two were always together except for a brief time when they were on a break over a summer (and no, not the Ross-and-Rachel-kind of break), and it was actually during that time apart that they both realized each other was the One. In fact, Devin took a train all the way from Manhattan to Montauk to surprise him because she knew he’d be there on a vacation … all because she realized that she’s just a happier person when she’s around Kevin.

When it came time to pop the question, Kevin proposed during a weeklong trip with friends to Rhode Island, on the very last day in Narrangansett (how he waited that long with the ring in his pocket, I have no idea!). They took a walk to see the cliffs they’d been wanting to see all week, despite the impending rain, and he got down on one knee once they reached the highest point of the rocks. Devin has no idea what he said after he proposed (“it was all a blur!”), but knowing Kevin I’m positive it was something very lovely, well thought out and true from his heart.
