There simply will never come a day when the name Palm Springs doesn’t perk us up a bit. Fab midcentury modern design and desert vibes? We’re always on board. And being that bride Sarah is in the SoCal wedding biz herself as owner of Floral Kitchen (check out her work here), she knows the feeling. She + her guy James (after much deliberation) decided on Palm Springs chic, and the photographers they discovered through 100lc (yay!), Willhouse, captured all that theme in all its glory:
First things first, the bride tells us that their day started with an early wake up call—one of the groomsmen’s wives went into labor at the venue! By 10:30 Sarah and James were officially auntie and uncle. Best wedding gift ever?
These gals have style!
Sarah says, We wanted everyone to feel relaxed and enjoy the desert as much as possible so we focused on how to utilize the grounds to maximize time spent outside enjoying the sunset and mountain views. (Check out her Pinterest for ideas.)
Sarah was inspired by so many different styles for the design, she had to do some juggling. I tried to keep a balance between all that I am drawn to and edited those ideas down. A little hippie with some macrame here, a little gold glam there mixed with the iconic Casa Verona house. I did keep the venue in mind when designing the elements brought in, the house is already meticulously decorated and on point, so I did not want to compete with the décor. With that in mind I tried to take my love of orange in a different direction and focused on corals and peach tones for the décor and bridesmaids.
Hello Gem nailed it with that woven backdrop.
Ahhh, poppy perfection. They worked with Mayesh Wholesale + The Urban Gardener to come up with the best bouquet. Just a day before the wedding they went with locally grown Icelandic poppies and had to control the opening process in order to create an absolutely perfect bunch.
