Parker Palm Springs wedding: Shanin + David

categories Ceremony & Reception, Real Weddings

Good Monday morning to you, cakelets! We have a small but very gorgeous wedding to share with you today. It’s stuffed full of some of our favorite creative people in the industry, including Max Wanger, Bash Please, Betsy Dunlap, and Michael and Brian of the Flashdance, and we think you’re going to like it. Like, a lot.

The ladies of Bash, Please made all the decorative touches, like this adorable “here comes the bride” sign with calligraphy by Betsy Dunlap (carried by their wedding attendants – David’s daughters).

A delightful installation of fabrics, ribbons, tulle and silk triangles were fringed for a fancier type bunting. We absolutely adore how this turned out!

The reclaimed wood table runners were washed in bronze paint, then adorned with vintage bottles, milk glass vases, and compote dishes stuffed with succulents, craspedia, peonies, ranunculus, chinese bells, heather and kumquats. Perfecto!

Bash Please florals

The guests waved these adorable “hooray” flags made from muslin and a custom gold stamp.

Isn’t it so cute? The perfect amount of detail. Not totally over the top, just sweet and festive and wonderfully romantic. It was a super small wedding, only 37 peeps including the bride and groom, which sounds so nice and intimate, doesn’t it? You can get so much more fancy with your decor when you only have one big table to keep in mind. As favors, they gave each guest a teeny airplant as a thank you for attending their celebration. Simple and sweet. Be sure to check back in a couple of weeks when we’ll be sharing their wedding video!

Nice work everyone! So pretty. And big congrats to Shanin and David. Thanks for letting us share.

  40. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Today bloggers publish only about gossips and net and this is actually frustrating. A good website with interesting content, this is what I need. Thanks for keeping this web-site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.

  41. Thanks for discussing your ideas on this blog. Additionally, a myth regarding the finance institutions intentions when talking about foreclosed is that the lender will not getreceive my installments. There is a certain amount of time that the bank will need payments here and there. If you are way too deep within the hole, they’re going to commonly demand that you pay the payment fully. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of installments at all. In the event you and the lender can find a way to work some thing out, your foreclosure process may stop. However, should you continue to miss payments in the new system, the home foreclosure process can pick up where it left off.

  42. Needed to post you that little remark to finally say thanks a lot once again over the nice tactics you’ve provided on this page. It has been so tremendously open-handed with people like you to supply openly what exactly a few people would’ve offered for an electronic book to help make some money for themselves, even more so since you could have done it in case you decided. Those strategies additionally served to be the good way to be sure that many people have the same keenness really like mine to know the truth significantly more with regards to this condition. I’m sure there are many more pleasant times up front for many who look into your website.

  43. Spend unique focus to the holidays of the nations you are traveling to. Diverse nations celebrate diverse holidays, and if you do not know when these are, you can give yourself a headache. A lot of restaurants and businesses will close on holidays, so look them up just before you travel to save yourself the trouble.
