Romantic, vintage Palm Spring wedding | Photo by Allie Lindsey Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76003

Get ready to smile, these two are just so cute. With a “spring in the desert” theme, C + S went with the inspiring landscape of O’Donnell House in Palm Springs. Celia says, We were immediately won over by the view. Up on the mountain over looking Palm Springs glittering in the desert, we couldn’t have picked a better spot.

The couple chose Allie Lindsey Photography via Skype—who totally got what they were going for right away. They’re pretty happy with the results, and we can see why:

White ranunculus, succulents for a little local flair, and lilac hydrangeas as a nod to an east coast spring.

From Celia: It took about 10 months to plan our wedding. Honestly the most important thing is learning to let go of the little things and delegate! Hiring a wedding planner was the smartest thing we did, especially living on the opposite side of the country from our venue. 

Cheers!

We love when a venue totally inspires a unique theme. With the locale being a Texas airplane hanger, photographer Whitney Bennett + the team below portrayed timeless beauty and an adventurous spirit. Whitney says, We wanted to build the idea of our couple living as constant travelers. Endearing, adventurous, and passionate enough to have their wedding in a hangar because of it’s symbol of a new journey.

Know any newly-engaged world travelers? You might wanna send this shoot their way…

DIY brides, here’s one for ya. Dakota planned her incredible (and incredibly crafty) wedding with a relaxed boho vibe and their inspiring desert venue in mind. We love how laidback yet romantic these photos by Fondly Forever Photography feel, not to mention all the earthy details and handcrafted elements.

Dakota, on why they chose Le Haute Desert Aerie: The earth there had this innate spiritual presence that we both immediately felt. It really felt magical. I knew that here we could be fully present and just ourselves taking the biggest step in our lives so far! The venue is completely surrounded by nature, you can’t see a building or another structure, all there is are rocks and trees! We knew this would be a special place for all our guests to experience. Plus there is no cell phone service so there is no choice but to tune in and enjoy everyone you’re with!

You guys know we love us a good DIY wedding. We think this miiight qualify… Painted signs, hand-dyed table runners, photo booth backdrop (by both bride + groom), dream catchers, tambourines for the ceremony seating, invitations + ceremony program, wood palette escort sign. Plus, Gordon’s mom painted the Ketubah.

First dance song: Talking Heads’ This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) as covered by The Lumineers

Dakota says, I was so nervous about getting in front of everyone and dancing for 3 whole minutes that I almost didn’t want to do it. However, when our song came on and we started to dance, everyone melted away. We mouthed the words to each other and for the first time it hit me that we were now husband and wife. It was a powerful moment. 

Congrats, D + G!
