An Intimate Palm Springs Wedding with just 10 Guests: Berrit & Daniel

Berrit & Daniel had just 8 (well 10 including their photographer Marianne Wilson and her assistant!) guests for their super intimate wedding in Palm Springs. By keeping the numbers so small they were able to pay real attention to all the wedding details in order to create an utterly stunning celebration. The wedding was held at a private house called Silver Orchid.

The couple traveled from Germany, where they live, to be married in California on a Friday evening. They had a florist come in and set up an archway and chair for the ceremony as well as a little dinner set up out on the lawn that was catered (mini milkshakes and all) by Chef KK.

“You can probably imagine the chaos-scenario with the whole family in good old cold Germany when we told them we’d decided to have a very small, intimate and perfect wedding, with only our closest friends, in sunny Califoria!” wrote Berrit. “We have never regretted it though! Most of our family members didn’t know we smoked or that I am tattooed. They loved the wedding photos by Marianne Wilson but that was a bit of a shock for them! So, our very private Rock n Roll lifestyle was then made public (at least to the family at home) at the very best day of our lives.”

“The best and most intimate part of our wedding was the fact that a close friend, Alex (I featured his own wedding on Rock n Roll Bride two years ago in fact!) made a licence to become our officiant! No one else could have done a more personal marriage ceremony than him”

Thank you to Berrit & Daniel and photographer Marianne Wilson for sharing this very private event with us today.

    Beautiful wedding! How cute is that little dog? Wish my pooch could come to our wedding 🙂 xxx

  2. OMG thank you so so so much for featuring this; it has totally put my mind at ease. We’re having a super small wedding too, with only 11 people including us and I decided to get a photographer for it. We’ve been freaking out a bit about how it would turn out, if it would look weird and too intimate or something, but this makes me feel a lot better! Thanks!

  3. WE loved working Berrit & Daniel on there wedding celebration in Palm Springs — they were wonderful to work with. Madison Workshop West did a fabulous job on flowers and Katherine King Special Events & Catering did a superb job on the food. It was truly great to see their wedding featured — WE follows Rock n’Roll bride on Facebook!

    Thank you to Berrit & Daniel for allowing us to be a part of their BIG DAY!
