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!

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

  21. 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!!

  22. 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!

  25. Hey Charlotte, I’m the groom and I got the socks here: http://tonsofsocks.com/mevaarso.html.

    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!
