Didja happen to catch this morning’s colorboard post? We’re all about those desert pastels today. After seeing how Stefanie Miles Events dreamed up this stunner of an inspiration shoot based on that soft, summery color scheme, you’ll be too.

Apryl Ann Photography captured it all just beautifully, we think:

The muse: Wild and lush garden florals paired with air plants and cactus created an interesting juxtaposition of soft and hard. Lilac, gray, and brown wood tones paired together for a concept that is a little less ‘sweet’, while sage green and mustard kept the design light and colorful.

One quick peek at our past colorboards and you’ll see that the options for wedding color schemes are endless. Who knew mixing neon + neutrals would look so cool, or that popsicles could inspire an entire wedding? After years in the biz, coming up with a new colorboard every now and then to inspire the next pretty event just keeps us on our toes. Even better if we can see them come to life. Our latest unlikely combo is inspired by this unique image of desert cacti in the loveliest of pastel tones…

With pastel versions of earth tones paired with a little pop of lilac, we couldn’t wait to see what kind of stunning event would come out of this set. Lucky for us, the talented Apryl Ann Photography + Stefanie Miles Events got together and brought this snippet to life with this inspiration shoot.

This one oughta brighten up your morning, Cakies. Jess + Ky got engaged at an art museum, so a wedding venue like The New Children’s Museum in San Diego was a shoe-in. Jess says, We wanted the day to be a fun, happy celebration of the life we were starting together. We did our best to make the day full of joy, so we chose things like Tattly tattoos as favors and a venue with interactive exhibits.

Thanks to photog Anika London for the cheery shots.

So much DIY goodness: We did quite a few DIY projects for the wedding, but the biggest one was making all of our centerpieces and bouquets. We planned our wedding from New Mexico, so we ordered the flowers over the phone and crossed our fingers they would be as pretty as we hoped. We picked up the flowers two days before the wedding and made all of the centerpieces that night, with help from a few friends. The flowers were gorgeous, and we ended up with more than we needed. Our hotel room looked like a tiny flower shop and smelled like heaven!

Jess says, I loved every second spent working on wedding crafts with Ky in the year leading up to the wedding. The flowers were a big undertaking, but I will never forget looking around the room and seeing some of our favorite people chatting and laughing with handfuls of flowers and petals everywhere.

Congrats, Jess + Ky!
