Korakia Pensione wedding: Alicia + Dylan

Categories   Real Weddings

Another super exciting wedding here today, you guys. This one from our friends Jamie and Michelle, aka Rad + In Love, who if you remember gave away a free wedding photography package with us in the fall. This couple didn’t win the giveaway, but they ended up hiring J and M anyway, and their wedding turned out beautifully!

First, um, Korakia? One of our very favorite spots in all of Palm Springs. And we have a lot of favorite spots out that way. And second, it’s a great celebration, with lots of love and beautiful flowers, and excellent style. Enough said.

The details of the hotel itself are just so amazing. Yummm. Part of Alicia and Dylan’s post-wedding advice is to pick a venue that is already beautiful, so you don’t have to kill yourself (or your budget) trying to make your space celebration worthy. So true, and they couldn’t have picked a better spot.

Oh little green shoes with ankle socks! You are too cute. And the flowers are gorg. Keep reading to see all sorts more.

Second piece of advice? Abuse your family members as an endless source of free labor. Tell it like it is, you two!

Dylan, Alicia, and her mom thrifted most of the tabletop decorations in Northern California, LA, and Palm Springs. Then they rallied mom and aunts to pull everything together on the wedding day, including flowers purchased from The Flower Market in downtown LA. If you’ve got family with stamina and latent talent, they are most certainly an excellent resource!

Key musical selections of the day: On the nature of Daylight by Max Richter, Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros, I Am the Man Who Loves You by Wilco, and Love How You Love Me by Neutral Milk Hotel. Nice!

Their table decor turned out so beautifully! Nice job mom and aunts. That’s some ultimate DIY. Alicia and Dylan made those pretty planter boxes and table runners too.

To save money when booking airline flights, verify the round-trip prices -- even if you only want to fly one particular way to a destination. Thanks to quirky airline policies, occasionally it is much less high-priced to obtain a round trip to your preferred locale than to fly one way. At least if that takes place, you can save money by getting the round-trip tickets anyway and basically not take the return flight back.
