Morning cakies! We’re so excited to share this one with ya. Recently 100lc took a trip over to Palm Springs for The Wedding Artists Collective’s Collective Gatherings dinner at the ever-beautiful Korakia (learn more about this fab venue here). Thought we’d take a few moments to relive this magical evening and share our fave details.

Thanks to Josh Goleman + Gary Ashley of The Wedding Artists Collective for capturing all the details.

Lisa of The Wedding Artists Collective decided on Korakia for the venue…

Korakia for me is what I imagine the fountain of youth would be…It feels so good there, so relaxed and beautiful. The staff pays attention to the little details without anything feeling too fussed over. So when conceiving of the next Collective Gathering it was an obvious choice and thankfully Korakia generously agreed to host us. With all of its natural, rustic beauty Korakia is breathtaking the way it is but I knew if we brought in the right design elements we could make an environment that was truly magical.

Wouldn’t mind a few of these in our own homes… PowWow Vintage Rentals created such an inviting lounge space.

The eclectic hotel + already-stunning landscape inspired the entire design. Megan of Enjoy Events Co. says, I knew I wanted to design the table in neutrals with black, stone plates, brass chargers, copper cups and wood flatware to set a simple yet refined look. In keeping the tabletop neutral also meant clean, modern paper goods.

We love when an event comes off as beautifully simple, and yet is filled to the brim with small, stunning details. For today’s watercolor wedding editorial, event designer Mona of Birds & Honey portrayed a couple who wanted an organic wedding that celebrated their romance without all the bells and whistles. Simple as that.

Thanks to Anthem Photography for sharing these photos with us today!

The team combined paired mismatched chairs + glassware with a custom wood table for an organic feel. Anna Mara Flowers then whipped up the prettiest tablescape to continue the earthy vibes.

Mona says, For the overall feel of this editorial my motto was “embrace simplicity”. Time and time again, the most transparent vision is often times the most simple.

Emerald and gold camp-themed wedding | Photo by Christie Graham | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81274

DIY weddings and nature go hand-in-hand, don’t you think? Perhaps it’s because a couple like S + P that appreciates the great outdoors also doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty when it comes to their big day. In this case, “getting your hands dirty” ranges from constructing wood signage to meticulously detailed accessories. It all came together like it was meant to be, as shown in these images by Christie Graham Photography (who these guys were super excited to snag, and we see why!)…

And a pair of gorgeous handcrafted sleeves for the bride. Silvie says, After an online shopping mishap, I was left a month before the big day with no sleeves for my dress. So as a last resort, I decided to try and make my own. A few weeks of trial and error (and some choice words) later, I was sporting a completely custom look down the aisle, and I was thrilled with it.
