So many Palm Springs weddings (like this + this) up on the blog as of late. Keep ‘em comin’, we say! Especially with a couple like Jeannie + Jeff, who brought in their friends + fam for an intimate wedding in their PS home. Even though it made for a tight guest list, they knew marrying in the very place they so often find peace just couldn’t be beat. From time spent primping with her daughter Jaimi (owner of Fiore Beauty) and their glam squad to the time Jeannie spent creating + jarring homemade peach jam to give as wedding favors, countless personal deets made this day special.
Happy to have found these photos by Heather Kincaid Photographer in our inboxes.
After chatting with GATHER Events, they decided to keep things true to a communal backyard feel: laidback and approachable, but elegant—exactly what their Palm Springs getaway house is to them. Jeannie says, Jeff and My decision to have our wedding in October gave us only a few months to plan. Robin Baab from Gather Events made it all possible, I could not have done it without her or Jaimi Brooks of Fiore Beauty. No one should ever plan a wedding without them!
Gasp! A beauty of a floating floral installation. Some of the flowers throughout were desert plants and natural eucalyptus foraged from the bride + groom’s property.
It turns out, J + J already owned a super sweet collection of vintage furniture, soo yeah, basically a dream for anyone planning a chic desert event.
The desert color palette: sand, stone, ochre, terra cotta, and faded blue.
Jeannie’s fave memory…
The first look was my favorite moment because re-marring later in life brings emotions up for children, family, friends, money; it was a difficult part of our process on a number of levels. The moment of that first look put us right back on the focus of why marriage at this time was good, right, and true for us both. With that we fully enjoyed all those who came together with us to make our wedding a real celebration.
Beautiful words from the bride! Congratulations Jeannie + Jeff!
