Guys, how stunning is this dress?! It’s the ‘Dahlia’ gown by Rue de Seine and we sure wish we were in model Emi Perry‘s shoes the day she got to spend wearing it for this editorial by Alexandra Wallace. And if the dress isn’t enough to make you fall for these photos, your jaw will drop when you see the bouquets below…

PS: Remember the last Rue de Seine piece we featured here? Srsly, no words.

Alexandra says, The inspiration for this editorial came from the little one-street town Los Alamos, located less than an hour north of Santa Barbara. In the center of Bell Street, the town’s main stretch, lies The Alamo Motel, a little stay that has been recently taken over and renovated by the Shelter Social Club (also responsible for the highly regarded Ojai Rancho Inn and Sama Sama Kitchen). Design elements were directly drawn from the idea of the modern, young couple hopping in the car and getting hitched in a windblown, California setting.

The FluidBloom Designs bouquet was created from foraged florals, including giant garden roses + foxtails. Eeek, so textured and unexpected.

Modern Palm Springs wedding at Frederick Loewe Estate | Photo by Michael Radford | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Modern-Palm-Springs-Wedding

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!

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!
