There needs to be more disco balls and trips to Palm Springs in our lives, don’t you think? We’re on the same page as Kate + Jon Paul when they say that Palm Springs is their happy place (it’s kind of ours too). That glamorous Mid-Century modern vibe, with its old Hollywood appeal is what keeps drawing them back. So, that’s the vibe they went with when planning their wedding. The Empire Polo Club had it all – white peaked tents, great wide open grass area and no noise restrictions for a dance party… all they had to do after booking the venue was add their touch of glamor. That’s where the design + planning skills of Jesi Haack come in. Girl gave them a sequins dance floor!!! Click here to jump on over to the full gallery of images.
We’re so stoked to finally be moving into the warmer months of the year. And after seeing this wedding we’ve definitely got travel and tropical weather on the mind, and think it’s perfect for rounding out the week with. Located just 30 minutes outside of Cancun, Mexico, Azul Beach Resort in Puerto Morelos matched Candice + Will’s desire to be at a small retreat-style hotel that accommodated the comforts & tastes of their family and friends coming from opposite coasts. There were less than 100 rooms, on the beach, and was the perfect escape to celebrate not just one day, but an entire weekend. Dreamy, right?
With guests spending thousands of dollars to join us on a Mexican getaway, I wanted the welcome and arrival from their long journeys to kick start the excitement for what was to come. Upon arrival at check in, along with welcome drinks, guests were given glow-in-the-dark pins. Their rooms were outfitted with welcome bags that highlighted personal messages about our past, present, and future along with “survival” items – like a Spanish phrase book!
Aside from being a 90% DIY wedding held at the stunning Secluded Garden Estate in Temecula, California, Alex + Emily wanted to host a wedding that was completely personal and would have guests commenting afterwards how much the wedding was “so them”. And that’s exactly what happened. By marrying (pun intended) and honoring their Chinese and Jewish traditions by having a tea ceremony, Hebrew vows, and the breaking of the glass, plus the help of lots of family & friends on deck, their wedding, captured fabulously by Rebecca of Birds of a Feather, was beautifully so them.
Don’t you hate it when couples make destination weddings look so easy? Just makes us want to get married all over again. If Liza + Paul can do it, planning it all the way from Sydney, Australia, than we’re pretty sure anyone can do it. You’ll need to enlist some help though. Their’s really couldn’t have been done without the amazing help of Signature Event Consulting & Design and the gorgeous photography of The Cana Family. There wedding was the perfect union between a Mexican fiesta and a Slim Aarons poolside photograph. Extremely romantic with lots of heart and soul, beautiful surroundings, lots of texture, flowers, asymmetry and some quirkiness thrown in and all with an air of ease.
Being that Lauren + Chris are both Georgia peaches, it made perfect sense for them to work from a range of peach tones, and go with a farmhouse, romantic Southern-charm wedding. With Lauren’s love of antiques and Chris’s modern aesthetic, they gathered eclectic objects (gold animals as escort cards, jars, vintage plates) and paired them with the industrial, old beauty of their wedding venue, Summerour Studios. The marriage of it all together was absolutely adorable, and perfectly captured by Jason Hales.
