Ah, Palm Springs.  There’s something about that warm desert air, cool mid-century vibe, and resort atmosphere that makes you such a rad spot to run off to.  If we were eloping tomorrow, that’s probably where we’d go too. Anna + Paul’s “pop-up wedding” only has us more convinced… These two packed up their suitcases with a few décor items, brought Heidi from Our Labor of Love, and headed out to the desert with 12 of their loved ones in tow. It’s relaxed, intimate, and fun, just like an elopement should be.

These lovebirds walked down the aisle to “La Vie En Rose” by Louis Armstrong. “Heaven Can Wait by Dean Martin” played for the recessional.

The ceremony took place on a cowhide the couple picked up in Argentina, where they got engaged. It’s in their house now as a lovely reminder of both milestones.

From the bride… We had the freedom to be a bit laissez-faire and relaxed about our wedding, as we didn’t have any traditions to uphold or preconceived notions. It was an attitude that worked really well for us and kept us in check about the whole thing. At the end of the day all we wanted was to be surrounded by the most important people to us, and it turned out to be a really personal, intimate and fun experience filled with more love than we could ever imagine.
