Hello and happy Monday! Hopefully those of you with not-so-sunny weather in the forecast can think of this Palm Springs wedding as a little break from the cold? Rosa, a publicist at HBO, + Jonathan, Entrepreneur in Residence at Thirty Labs, are just so stylish. All you need to see are her sleek black Burberry heels + his designer duds to wonder what magic they worked on the iconic Frederick Loewe Estate. Allow these images by Michael Radford Photography (who also recommended a few of their lovely vendors) to quell your curiosity!

Being modernists, Palm Springs was an obvious choice. They wanted cool colors, straight lines, and succulents (duh!)… An “interplay of stark modernism + native organic”. The Frederick Loewe Estate was such a no brainer for their intimate 80-person guest list that they actually booked it before they visited.

R + J’s advice: Plan the details, but leave something to be surprised by. We made so many small choices and really thought through the details but had only given a mood board to Megan Gray of Honey & Poppies. Planning each detail allowed us to be calm during the ceremony and reception because we knew everything that was happening, but the real treat was seeing the flower arrangements for the first time.

Jon designed the invites + menus that had stickers, words about the venue, and illustrations of local hotels. They’d also collected photobooth photos of friends for 7 years to display at the wedding and made table numbers out of mounted photos. They printed the numbers + posed for photos to place at each table too.

Parting words: Rosa remembers being very nervous when guests started arriving at the estate. She also didn’t want the guests to see her prematurely and the estate has these large glass windows. Jon and his groomsmen surrounded her and walked her over to a room, where one of the groomsmen sat with her to ease her nerves. The best part of weddings is the communal love, and it was so strong and heartfelt. Her ‘maids + fam were also always by her side, fixing her dress, getting flowers for photos, and everyone in the party whispered encouraging words.

Congratulations to Jon + Rosa!

 Floral farm wedding inspiration | Photo by  Jennifer Togal Photography | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Farm-Wedding-Inspiration

Did you guys catch the colorful bridal inspo we had on the blog yesterday? Those dresses sure stood out against that romantic countryside scene. The setting at Maple Ridge Farm from this editorial is just as stunning, and full of color too. But instead of showing off a bridal collection, this team of photogs, planners, designers, and otherwise talented folks (check the list below!) combined rustic farm with urban glam in the prettiest and floral-filled of ways. Nothing like a good theme to inspire a Friday, right?

Thanks to Jennifer Togal Photography + Whitney Furst Photography for these photos!

Jennifer says, We all wanted to see the glitz and glamour of a sophisticated urban wedding meet the rustic nature in a Farm venue. With deep navy stripes, vibrant pink touches and a dress to die for this shoot is everything we could have imagined.

Can’t tell if we are more enamored with the calligraphy or the watercolor florals in this invitation suite by A Milestone Paper Co. Insert heart eye emoji!

DIY Ojai Rancho Inn wedding | Photo by  Cara Robbins Studio | http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Ojai-Wedding

It may be impossible to *briefly* intro this Ojai wedding given all the deets the bride, groom, and photog Cara Robbins Studio gave us, but here goes: Joya is an illustrator (see this presh first b-day featured on Cakelet); Jesse is a gallery director + curator. They got engaged in late summer, decided on a fall wedding a month later, and created what could’ve been a $40k wedding in half that. How, you ask? All we can say is never underestimate the power of a creative couple + a talented posse of friends/fam who want to create a meaningful, handcrafted wedding. Here’s how it all came together:

Joya says, Our venue already had lots of character and greenery, so we felt all we had to do was add the practical things to make a wedding happen. We love the objects in our lives to have a story—to be made by our hands, or by hands we know, to feel and look like the materials they were made from. The first year we were together we built a table (it took us 6 months) that still sits in our kitchen. We wanted our wedding to have the same elements we love about that flawed table, and the meals we share with friends in the back yard.

Basically everything was handcrafted, starting with the birch wedding arches that the groomsmen made the day before. Then there’s Joya’s pearl headpiece made by a friend, the soap favors Jesse’s mom made, florals by Joya + her ‘maids, 12 bags full of greenery foraged from friends’ houses, vintage dishes collected by Joya’s mom, the ketubah that they wrote and groomsman Todd Roeth designed, lavender from a friend’s farm…

For both of us, saying our vows to the other, and receiving theirs, was a completely transcendent experience. We could never have anticipated the calm we would feel, or the way our focus and love would wrap us up and block out everything else so we could fully mean what we said, and fully hear the gifts that were our partner’s words. It was an incredible moment, and one we will never forget.

Would you believe that this entire yummy spread was made by family? Right down to the charcuterie made by friends and the cocktail that Jesse created.

Yup, that would be the second family handcrafted cake we’ve had up this week. This was made by Joya’s mom + sis, Jody and Jordan Thomas. The bride painted the topper from Jody’s vintage collection, and it’s on a stand by groomsmen Gabe Strycharz (wood-burned with their initials + the dates).

Oh and that suit? They bought it from ASOS, had it tailored, and replaced the buttons with leather ones they found on Etsy. Such a good idea.

Cheers guys!
