Talk about a wedding venue that doesn’t need to be touched with any extra decor. 632 on Hudson in New York, decorated wall to wall with antiques and artifacts from all over the world was so the perfect venue to complement fashion designer and bride, Becky’s cathedral length gown and overall classic look. It also made guests feel as if they were mingling amongst each other at one enormous private dinner party.
There needs to be more disco balls and trips to Palm Springs in our lives, don’t you think? We’re on the same page as Kate + Jon Paul when they say that Palm Springs is their happy place (it’s kind of ours too). That glamorous Mid-Century modern vibe, with its old Hollywood appeal is what keeps drawing them back. So, that’s the vibe they went with when planning their wedding. The Empire Polo Club had it all – white peaked tents, great wide open grass area and no noise restrictions for a dance party… all they had to do after booking the venue was add their touch of glamor. That’s where the design + planning skills of Jesi Haack come in. Girl gave them a sequins dance floor!!! Click here to jump on over to the full gallery of images.
We’re so stoked to finally be moving into the warmer months of the year. And after seeing this wedding we’ve definitely got travel and tropical weather on the mind, and think it’s perfect for rounding out the week with. Located just 30 minutes outside of Cancun, Mexico, Azul Beach Resort in Puerto Morelos matched Candice + Will’s desire to be at a small retreat-style hotel that accommodated the comforts & tastes of their family and friends coming from opposite coasts. There were less than 100 rooms, on the beach, and was the perfect escape to celebrate not just one day, but an entire weekend. Dreamy, right?
With guests spending thousands of dollars to join us on a Mexican getaway, I wanted the welcome and arrival from their long journeys to kick start the excitement for what was to come. Upon arrival at check in, along with welcome drinks, guests were given glow-in-the-dark pins. Their rooms were outfitted with welcome bags that highlighted personal messages about our past, present, and future along with “survival” items – like a Spanish phrase book!
A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of cruising to Palm Springs to spend the afternoon sipping on cocktails and crafting with some of our favorite ladies in the wedding biz. The party was hosted by Sarah Yates of Birds of a Feather and Tori Hendrix of Sitting in a Tree Events, two very stylish & creative ladies whom we adore to pieces. But since this was their party, we’ll let them explain the pretty you’re about to see. Click here to jump on over to the full gallery of images.
From Sarah… The wedding industry is chock full of talented, fun, inspiring and rad ladies! Unfortunately we don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, something we were talking about during a recent Birds of a Feather get together. So we decided to host a party- to lure some of the aforementioned gals into the desert with the promise of an afternoon of sun, cocktails, great company and crafting! Once we’d hatched the plan we asked Tori of Sitting in a Tree Events to jump on board and co-host. We knew she’d be the perfect person to work with. And we’re so glad we did, that lady can style a party like no other!
Once we sorted out the guest list we tackled the invite, working with our favorite designer Aileen Cheng to come up with something that was enticing enough to convince our party invite list to drive 2+ hours into Palm Springs. We were thrilled with what she came up with, and just as in love with the fun feather, sequins and washi tape Tori added to the packaging.
