Groovy Ace Hotel wedding: Andi + Jarrett

categories Neat Venues, Real Weddings, Wedding Wardrobe

Ready for some serious awesomeness? From Max, this super insanely stylish wedding has us so inspired for summer and for doing things your own way. If you have stellar personal style, (and you happen to be the global design director for Nike Sportswear, like Jarrett) let it show all the time… especially at your wedding. Andi was nice enough to share all the details from their day… including an 80’s Ferrari, custom designed beach towels, and a Native American ceremony.

Here goes…

Love their invites and towels designed by Dutch artist Parra, who Andi and Jarrett got to know while they lived in Amsterdam. They loved his design so much it became a central theme of their wedding.

They chose their amazing pool towels as favors because it fit with the theme of the wedding (pool, party, sun); and they turned out to be a fun way for their guests to identify each other at the pool during the weekend. They were a huge hit. And they were organic bamboo fabric, making them even better. Exceptional attention to detail you guys!

Gorgeous ceremony and Native American flute by Bill Neal. All around rad way to get married.

Rachel Pally dresses for Andi’s maids. So chic in their different styles, which she had them accessorize with chunky gold and vermillion. This lady thinks of everything.

And the groomsmen wore their own suits + matching Nikes. Obvs.

Then there’s the guests, who look like they might moonlight on the Sartorialist. Yes, suits can be worn as shorts and if you have the right attitude you can absolutely show up barefoot to a wedding.

Notice aforementioned Ferrari. Nice touch.

And the details from the party. Andi used her wedding as an excuse to work with Confetti System, who she (and we) loves. The bright shiny colors were an excellent contrast to the pretty neutrals of the desert.

Their cake was based on Parra’s design and made by Jeannette Hardin. Table numbers made by good friend Michael Leon, who also brought the keys to the Ferrari.

We didn’t even mention that Michael was in effect as the DJ du jour, which is as good it gets when it comes to music.

We could keep talking about how much we love the whole vibe, but you can clearly see for yourselves how perfect this all is. SAVE EVERY PHOTO IN YOUR INSPIRATION FOLDERS!!! Kudos to Andi and Jarrett for putting together such a swell party. We wouldn’t expect anything less from such stylish folk.

Congratulations and thank you thank you thank you for sharing your secrets with us, Andi!

  33. Osiyo oginalii – I was pleased to be able conduct the wedding ceremony and to play the music of the Native American flute for Andi and Jarrett. Their ceremony was a traditional Native American hand-binding ceremony in which their wrists were bound together to symbolize their union in marriage and to call upon the spirit of the eagle as the highest-flying of all the birds who carries our prayers to the Creator. The solemnity and beauty of this ceremony is centuries-old.
