From their photographers, Randy + Ashley:
"Stefan and Arnaud, affectionately referred to as S+RNO, threw what quite possibly might be the most stylish and fabulous wedding that Randy and I have ever gone to. For months, we looked forward to this wedding; every time we met with Stefan and Arnaud, we would learn new details about the wedding that just blew our mind. Everything was so beautifully planned and executed, I can honestly say I’ve never had a wedding client put so much time and effort into their details. From the individually designed wedding invitations (each unique to its receiver), to the “welcome to Palm Springs” bags that included a little hangover recovery kit, to the dress code and drag queen show – this was one of my most memorable weddings, ever. Stefan and Arnaud met many years ago, while living overseas for work. Their wedding ceremony was short, and sweet – Arnaud choked up a little bit, which made ME choke up a little bit … It was truly beautiful to be witness. Dana, their longtime friend and publicist, gave a hilarious anecdote about the first time that they met during the ceremony (which had everyone laughing and learning a bit more about this awesome couple). Through the years, they’ve lived all over the world (including India, Hong Kong, Dubai and Paris) and through it all, have had the best adventure together and their friends and family flew in from all over the world to witness their big day. Following the ceremony, Stefan and Arnaud surprised their guests with a fabulous show by Bella da Ball – complete with Marilyn, Christina, Tina, Beyonce and Liza! All of the food was outstanding – from the appetizers through to exquisite French cuisine dinner – it was just divine. And the two wedding cakes (a Foret Nori/Black Forest) and Fraiser/French Strawberry) with the Be@rbrick figurines featuring Daft Punk, the Tron Legacy edition? To die for! Seriously cool!"
