Adam & Joanna’s Wedding!!

We are beyond thrilled to be featured on the fabulous blog, 100 Layer Cake, this morning! Seriously, the best! Adam & Joanna’s dreamy wedding captured by Jessica Claire was one of our faves this Spring. We loved the inspiration behind their big day and it was so fun seeing it come to life on the actual wedding day. Take a peek at the lovely pics below to see all of the fun details and romantic shots of the couple…

All of the vendors rocked this one- paper elements by Color Me Carla, florals by Isari, linens by La Tavola, rentals from Classic Party Rentals, delicious food from Border Grill. Big thanks to Jessica Claire for capturing the day so beautifully! We are so glad that it was featured today on 100LC!

The Big Day: Joanna & Adam

Okay, we did it again! We went to Palm Springs and forgot to give you a sneak peek of the wedding before it went down. Hopefully this fun and fantasmical  inspiration board will make up for it!? For Joanna & Adam’s big day we brought some whimsy to the desert. A Tim Walker inspired affair complete with stripes, polka dots, floating balloons, pastels and cacti a plenty! What made the day even more perfect were the lovely vendors who made it all possible….

J&A Sneak

These are our lousy instagram photos above, but we can not wait to see the real deal from the oh so rad Jessica Claire!! That floral goodness you’re eyeballing above is all from Isari. They even polka dotted the little cacti for us!! One of our absolute favorite details was the paper goods from Color Me Carla. Fab and perfectly fitting with the theme linens from La Tavola, and Los Salazar Mariachi to set the mood whilst guests dined on fine fare from Border Grill. Perfection! Wait, perfection was truly the shaved ice from Hula Girls at the end of the night. Mmmm! Loads more pro photos to share and all the juicy details, so stay tuned….

Snapshot Love: Abey & Matt

Our jaws dropped when we saw these gorgeous photos in our inbox last week. We immediately asked our sweet bride Abey if we could share these stunners on our lil ol’ blog. So glad she was more than happy to have us post her & Matt’s dreamy engagements shot by her best friend, the fabulous Tara McMullen. We’re so excited to have Tara also capturing Abey & Matt’s big day! Now check out all of the romantic goodness below….

Pretty much exactly what you hope & dream your engagements will turn out looking like, right!? Doesn’t hurt if you’re also gorgeous like these two! Abey always looks flawless, but there’s a great story behind why she looks extra radiant. She didn’t think Tara was going to make it to her bridal shower last week being that Abey lives in LA and Tara in Canada. Tara being the awesome pal she is surprised her at the shower and then hired the glam pro- Amy Clarke to doll her up for this impromptu session. Matt was in on it of course! Just amazing. Head over to Tara’s blog to see more pics & to hear the story told much better!

Is your curiosity piqued and you’re just dying to know what’s in store for their Ace Palm Springs nuptials? Well, head on over to check out what we’ve been pinning down for them!

Erin & Blair’s Wedding!

This week has been an exciting one! We’re still reeling from our recent feature on 100 Layer Cake of Erin & Blair’s super gorgeous & fun Palm Springs wedding! Check out the feature here & head over to We Call This Love’s blog for more stunning photos of the big day.

Erin was an absolute dream to work with. As the owner of two boutiques in Canada (Emporia & Violette), she not only has amazing style & taste, but is one busy, busy lady! We were so glad we got to plan + design this beautiful wedding for her & Blair from start to finish! Since the couple lives in Canada we got to take some fun visits to the Ace in their name. We like everyone else, quickly fell in love with the space, and were inspired on how we could transform it into the couple’s relaxed, but glam dream wedding!

Our favorite detail, of course, was interweaving Erin & Blair’s first dance song (“You’re The One” by The Black Keys) into special signage & favors. Love that it was a significant song to them, that also had the sweetest message. It was a labor of love to create the 100s of feet of custom bunting in mint, pale pink, & gold, as well as, the fringe chair backs that adorned each guests’ chair. In the end these elements really helped transform the Ace commune into a rad reception.

The amazing & talented crop of folks working on this wedding blew our minds.

Obsessing majorly over the custom CD favors, gold foiled menus, cursive cut-out table names, and absolutely perfect custom wall decal that Courtney from Brightly Designed created.

The flowers will definitely live on in our hearts forever. The dynamic duo of Root 75 created just the most perfect & fitting flowers for this event. Did you see the desert table arrangements? Gah, that’s what dreams are made of!!

Shout out to VG Donuts for letting us custom color & sprinkle those bad boys that were devoured oh so quickly.

To the make up master, Amy Clarke, for making Erin & her gals look SO dang gorgeous. Erin’s mama shed tears of joy after Amy was done working her magic!

The night ended just as an it should have, with crazy dancing and bridesmaids in the pool!

Thanks again to We Call This Love for these awesome shots!

Snapshot Love: Jenni & Jeff

Brace yourselves for one of the cutest couples we’ve ever met! Jenni & Jeff are out of this world sweet and so it was very fitting that we met them for the first time at the ultimate sweet shop, Bottega Louie. They have the cutest style (seriously looks like they stepped out of a Madewell catalog) so it’s not surprising that they picked one of Palm Spring’s newest hotels for their May nuptials, Alcazar. It will be the perfect backdrop for their stylish whimsical & nature inspired wedding!


This is heaven- gorgeous ring & a delicious s’more!!

 Great style runs in the family–Jenni’s mama shot all of the pics! Congrats again you two-we’re  so excited to be a part of the wedding!!

The Big Day: Erin & Blair

 We are headed out the door for a fun-filled wedding weekend at our most favorite of places…Ace Hotel Palm Springs!! Knew that it was meant to be with this couple when they listed donuts and margaritas as must-haves! Expect to see lots of those as well as some rockin’ mid century furniture, a pennant flag (or 200), and sequins!!

We have loved every single second of planning & designing with Erin & Blair and can’t believe it is all coming together tomorrow on the big day. We feel even luckier that some of the absolute best gals around are contributing their talents to this hip soiree as well, Brightly Designed & Root 75!!  Cherry on the tippy top of this ice cream sundae is that Kimberly Geneieve Photography will be in the desert with us to too to capture all of the fun. Seriously check out her website!
