As Victoria Crawford and Adrian Jimenez’s love story proves, a great connection can happen when (and where) you least expect it. Yes, that even includes in the middle of breaking a sweat. The twosome first met at a private gym in Los Angeles back in 2016—Victoria was exercising with a friend and Adrian was interning at the facility. But it wasn’t until they were set up on a semi-blind date a year later that they took their connection to the next level.

From the moment they got together, the couple has shared years of incredible memories—so it was only fitting that Adrian honored their rich past when he asked Victoria to be his future wife. “I proposed at home on the couch with a photo album of places [and] memories we shared as a couple, with the last page labeled ‘when we got engaged,’” he said. 

When it came to planning their big day, Victoria and Adrian wanted to get married somewhere local that had a destination feel. Palm Spring was the “perfect location." The couple immediately fell in love with the vibrant one-of-a-kind design of the Parker Palm Springs. In fact, the venue was a key source of inspiration for the celebration’s overall vibe. 

“The wedding day was created with an elegant, yet retro chic vibe complete with neutrals and hot pops of color to represent our stylish, eclectic couple,” explains Kathleen Britsch of RMBO Collective, who planned the festivities for Victoria and Adrian. “Bold graphics, organic floral, and stylish details made for an unforgettable aesthetic with fun, unexpected elements around every corner.” 

Two years and one Covid-related postponement later, the couple tied the knot on October 16, 2021 with 115 of their favorite people in attendance. Read on for an intimate look at their special day, as planned by RMBO Collective and photographed by Jana Williams Photography.

To honor Palm Springs’ eclectic-yet-elevated aesthetic, Britsch opted for a crisp white palette with pops of neon pinks, yellows, chartreuse, and pale blue. Swell Press got the celebration started on the right note—literally—with a playfully polished invitation suite.

On the big day, Victoria opted for a classic bun from Laurent Saint-Cricq and “natural and timeless” makeup, courtesy of Fiore Beauty. Once she completed her glam, the bride piled on the jewelry: Diamond earrings she borrowed from her mom, a Cartier “Love” bracelet, XIV Karats’ tennis bracelet, and a Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet, which was a gift from the mother of the bride.

The bride wore a form-fitting strapless gown from Netta BenShabu, complete with layers of lace and Swarovski crystals. “My mom and godmother went dress shopping with me,” Victoria explains. “I was debating between a few dresses, but when I saw how my dress looked in pictures, I knew it was the one.”

Meanwhile, Adrian dressed to the nines in a custom black tuxedo from Gidal Vodovoz. Rounding out the look is a pair of shoes from Magnanni, a Timex watch, cufflinks from Burberry, and a bowtie, courtesy of Tom Ford.

The groom's big day started off on a relaxing note. “I sat out by the pool (being careful not to get sunburnt!) [and headed] back to the room to shower,” he shares. “Friends and parents stopped by to hang out, eat snacks, and enjoy some drinks.”

With a symmetrical floral backdrop, whitewashed walkway, and colorful signage, the ceremony lawn offered that sweet spot between organic and eye-catching. “​​The ceremony felt intimate, sweet, and touching and looked like a lush garden,” the couple adds.

Adrian and Victoria stuck with traditional vows, but enlisted the mother of the groom for a special reading of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

After exchanging wedding bands—his from Mejuri and hers from XIV Karats—and sealing their marriage with a kiss, the newlyweds recessed down the aisle to a rendition of “Always Be My Baby” by Mariah Carey.

Meanwhile, guests moseyed over to the cocktail hour area, which was peppered in white lounge chairs, a cozy firepit, and an escort display made with colored plexiglass and bright florals. When paired with the couple’s signature beverages—a skinny mezcal margarita for Victoria and a Saturn for Adrian—happy hour appealed to all of the senses.

Before heading to dinner, guests experienced the beautiful, celebratory Japanese tradition of Kagami-biraki, in which the lid of a sake barrel is broken open by a wooden mallet and the sake is served to everyone. “The Kagami-biraki represents an opening to harmony and good fortune,” the couple says. “Our parents and us enjoyed sake straight from the Japanese barrel, while guests received a glass of sake to welcome them into the ballroom.”

Britsch and her team at RMBO Collective dressed up the Parker Palm Springs’ ballroom with glowing candlelight, warm uplighting, and organic florals in a muted sunset palette. “The acrylic signage laser cut to match the famous entryway of the Parker added a beautiful touch to each table, and made for the perfect conversation starter,” the planner adds. “The retro chic vibe of neutral creams and whites of the tablescape design were combined with hot pops of color in the event day signage and floral centerpieces.”

“We wanted to highlight the importance and impact of the people in our lives,” the couple explains. “We incorporated three cultures to reflect our backgrounds: American, Japanese, and Mexican.” To pay homage to their roots, they named each table after special places in their respective lives.

Chevy & The Family kept the party going all night long with a pulse-pumping setlist. Victoria and Adrian kicked off a night of music with a first dance to Stephen Day’s “Back of My Hand."

Parker Palm Springs delivered with an assortment of California-inspired cuisine, including seared prime filet of beef with gold potatoes, pan-seared Alaskan salmon with green hummus puree, and vegan roasted spaghetti squash. Rounding out the meal was an assortment of desserts and a two-tiered vanilla bean cake with Thai tea custard filling.

As guests danced the night away, servers passed out fries and freshly made In-N-Out burgers, made in an on-site food truck.

Though Victoria and Adrian relied heavily on their vendors, the couple emphasizes the importance of leading as one, unified team. “Have a kickoff meeting or introductory session with all your vendors—especially photographer, hair and makeup, and videographer,” they recommend. “You’re going to be spending a lot of time with them on your wedding day and it’s important to make sure the chemistry is positive!”
