We love Palm Springs weddings, and the fact that this is DIY (though you’d never know it) is such a bonus. With Sarah being a graphic designer, her sister in design, and her mom having their aesthetic down too, they opted out of hiring a coordinator. Creating their own chuppah, signage, favors, and decor actually made it easier to nail the modern Moroccan theme that M. K. Sadler captured just beautifully, as you could assume!

We liked the idea of bold graphic black and white design mixed with dark green palm leaves and hints of metallic. Our ceremony and reception was held at Greta Garbo’s desert vacation home from the 1920s. We wanted to respect the Spanish and Moroccan architecture with the theme. We loved the classic yet modern feel of our wedding.

Side note: Their wedding website is still up + full of sweet stories a la the groom.

Right before it all began, Sarah even snagged a moment to take it all in, which she majorly advises all brides do (srsly brides-to-be, heed that advice!) She says, Right before you walk down the aisle, slow down, stop, breathe, take everything in. All the faces, the scenery, and especially the groom! You will want that mental image to last forever. The ceremony was so emotional when they read their vows, that not even the groomsmen could keep it together. So presh.

And a few words on finding their photog, M. K. SadlerWe were searching for a long time and everything started looking the same. Then we came across Meghan. Her style stood out immediately. We loved the mood, movement, and artistic expression she was able to capture. We didn’t want traditional portraiture. Meghan’s style fulfilled everything we desired in our lasting photographic memories of our engagement and our wedding day.

Rustic and romantic vineyard wedding

Patrick and Corinne’s wedding is equal parts rustic and romantic. A vineyard wedding just can’t be beat if you’re looking for both. Their goal was to reimagine one of their first dates amongst the vineyard, with the addition of 180 guests who could drink and dance in the moonlight. Does anything sound better? Thanks to Megan Sorel Photography for sending these photos our way!

Enlisting Flower Wild ended up being the best decision for flowers, even though they had a stressful experience with their first florist. These bouquets make it all worth it, yeah?

Corinne explains, When we were first dating, we had a really romantic day out at my family’s vineyard where we shared a bottle of wine, wandered the vines, and sat next to the pond. We loved the idea of recreating that day with all of our favorite people. Also we wanted to have our first dance under the huge, beautiful oak trees at the vineyard. Our wedding song was “California Stars” by Wilco so we got to have our first dance under the stars. It was as if no one was there except for the two of us.

One of the best things about rustic weddings are the many opportunities for personal DIYs. They also added a tribute to Corinne’s brother. She says, Patrick and all the groomsmen carried a coin minted in 1980 to symbolize my brother, Lee, who passed away. Lee loved collecting coins so we wanted the groomsmen to carry a memory of him with them. He was born in 1980 which is why the coins were minted that year.
