Vintage Palm Springs wedding: Melissa + Matt

Categories   Real Weddings

Melissa and Matt were married this past October at the Cree Estate in Palm Springs. It’s a huge property so the immediate families all stayed there for the weekend. Isn’t that fun?

Melissa’s vision for her wedding was “modern vintage” and she pulled everything together with endless hours of crafting in the weeks leading up to the wedding.















She made favor boxes, program fans, cocktail stirs, butterfly place cards, table numbers, wine labels, coasters AND her invites and save the dates. She got so into it that she even opened an Etsy shop last week!

Beautiful wedding, lovely photography as always.

Thanks for sharing Melissa!

Um, can we please have a major bouquet appreciation moment? Or at least, I am having one right now. That thing is gorgeous. And the paper lanterns are divine.... no one can ever go wrong with those future classics though. Thanks for sharing!

The water hose makes the first two images fail. Anyways thanks for sharing these images.

ajb on Jan 27, 2010

not only a beautiful wedding but also looks like a fun party!

db on Jan 27, 2010

I think the hose adds some realism and authenticity to the first few pics. Love all of the pics and especially the wine labels!

Eryn on Jan 27, 2010

Oh NO... I totally disagree. The water hose is what makes the first two pictures genius! I'm guessing the point was to give the photos that editorial feel. And I LOVE them all!!

Charlotte on Jan 28, 2010

I love this! Can someone please tell me where the groomsmen's argyle socks are from? I'm trying to locate blue argyle socks with pops of yellow for my june wedding and it is suprisingly tough!

Stephanie@WhiteRabbitStudios on Jan 28, 2010

I adore all of the details in this wedding!

Abby on Jan 28, 2010

Would it be possible to find out the information about the bride's veil? I love it. Style info and where to purchase?

Matt Vannucci on Jan 28, 2010

Hey Charlotte, I'm the groom and I got the socks here: Notice how the socks are "Vannucci" brand too! I thought that a sock brand with my own last name was a cool little detail for our wedding. ha! Hope this helps, and have a wonderful wedding!

Charlotte on Jan 28, 2010

Awesome, thanks!!!

Melissa on Jan 29, 2010

Abby, I'm actually looking to sell my veil! Contact me at my link and we could talk! -Melissa
