Saguaro Hotel Palm Springs

Let’s kick off the weekend by admiring this gem from Zoom Theory, k? Cake & Punch actually whipped up this gay wedding shoot (at none other than The Saguaro) *right* at the close of Pride month last week, just after the news of the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality broke out (and filled our hearts/the internet with joy). So many people in the gay community plan, style, and photograph weddings for others. Having their own unions legally recognized is an incredible step forward! This act is important for so many reasons and today we’re beside ourselves to just celebrate l-o-v-e with a set of cheerful neon wedding ideas. What else, right?!

A little background, via Cake & Punch:

Our stylized shoots are a representation of our dreams and passions. Love and equality are both things we feel extremely passionate about, which is why we were over the moon when the legalization of gay marriage, happened just two days before this already scheduled shoot! Planning the biggest day of a couple’s life is something we do not take lightly! We put our hearts into each wedding we produce to ensure the planning process is smooth and enjoyable for everyone involved. Justin & Calvin, our real life couple of 4 years, were touched as they had a sneak peek to what their real wedding day might be like. We all celebrated their love and this historic milestone at the most appropriate place imaginable, an actual mid-century technicolor RAINBOW hotel!

Our couples and their love for one another inspire every wedding we do, which makes each wedding unique, beautiful, and personal to their love story. The vibrantly colorful Saguaro hotel in Palm Springs definitely set the tone for this playfully stylized shoot celebrating love and equality for all. Justin and Calvin’s bright and cheerful union helped influence the colorful and modern elements in this neon inspired gay wedding.

Lace wedding dress

Are those Kate Spade charm heels peeking through that gorgeously full skirt? Oh yes. And the most glittery ones of all. A pop of sparkle is exactly what a bride wearing such a romantic dress and holding a large and luscious bouquet would want too, no? Thanks to Elizabeth Fogarty Photography for sharing this cheerful, thoughtful, modern shoot.

Liz says, We chose to go with a springtime pallet for our shoot, bold but soft and romantic. Subtle colors of white, peach, and blush created the softness while the burgundy and orange florals really popped. When adding the gold accents from the flatware and china, it created an elegant but fun table for our couple to enjoy. The beautiful metal industrial chairs were the perfect touch of trendy, modern yet romantic element we needed to complete our look.

Smoke bomb bridal portrait

Are you guys swamped yet gearing up for Fourth of July? A holiday week is always so rushed but so worth it. You’ll definitely want to make time for this colorful pink editorial Emily Wren sent our way though obvs. She was inspired by Filippo Minelli’s landscape series Silence & Shapes + photographers who use smoke bombs in their work to add a little edge. But instead of going that route, Emily let the smoke inspire a vibrant rustic color pallete perfect for wedding photography.

Emily says, When I connected with Sara from Confetti & Co. she took the idea and ran with it, and brought this shoot to life! We assembled an amazing team of wedding vendors. It was such a pleasure to collaborate with such talented and tasteful professionals! All the details by Ilonka Florals, Hello Bird, BHLDN, and Sweet Elizabeth’s really helped give the shoot depth and beauty. We found our models through Rienhart Agency and when one of them had to cancel, we simply asked our florist Keely to step in (she just happens to be both a florist and a model)! Terrain at Styers felt like the perfect location for this shoot and they were incredibly accommodating, letting us arrive in the morning before they opened so we could set off our smoke bombs!

Wedding portrait

B + M live in California but chose to say I Do at the elegant Arizona Biltmore in Michelle’s hometown, surrounded by the lushest flowers. There wasn’t a theme per se, but ‘secret garden’ was their muse, complete with green draping and floral installations for an intimate vibe. Brushfire Photography gave them the natural, non-staged photos they had their eyes on…

The toughest part of planning during their 1.5 year engagement was the guest list, which they had to narrow to 280. Their best advice? Get the big stuff out of the way first—then enjoy the process.

A pretty spectacular spot to wed, ya think? Michelle tells it, I grew up about 10 minutes from the hotel and Brandon fell in love with it upon our first visit. We really wanted to have our wedding be a weekend long celebration so we wanted to choose a place that everyone could stay and hang out. The architecture of the Biltmore is quintessential Arizona, which is what we wanted to share with our family and friends who have never visited. It is very grand and sophisticated.

Words from Victoria Canada Weddings and Events: Because of the bride’s love for floral, we thought incorporating a floral wall would be perfect. We then collaborated with Petal Pusher to create a wall where we could hang the seating, then later turn it into the backdrop for the Slow Motion Video Booth. Petal Pusher was the perfect partner for this vision and the guests couldn’t get enough of this detail!


Now prepare yourself for the sweetest vid by I Do Films .

Congratulations, Michelle and Brandon!
