Palm Springs wedding at Casa Verona | Photo by  WILLHOUSE | 100 Layer Cake

There simply will never come a day when the name Palm Springs doesn’t perk us up a bit. Fab midcentury modern design and desert vibes? We’re always on board. And being that bride Sarah is in the SoCal wedding biz herself as owner of Floral Kitchen (check out her work here), she knows the feeling. She + her guy James (after much deliberation) decided on Palm Springs chic, and the photographers they discovered through 100lc (yay!), Willhouse, captured all that theme in all its glory:

First things first, the bride tells us that their day started with an early wake up call—one of the groomsmen’s wives went into labor at the venue! By 10:30 Sarah and James were officially auntie and uncle. Best wedding gift ever?

Sarah says, We wanted everyone to feel relaxed and enjoy the desert as much as possible so we focused on how to utilize the grounds to maximize time spent outside enjoying the sunset and mountain views. (Check out her Pinterest for ideas.)

Sarah was inspired by so many different styles for the design, she had to do some juggling. I tried to keep a balance between all that I am drawn to and edited those ideas down. A little hippie with some macrame here, a little gold glam there mixed with the iconic Casa Verona house. I did keep the venue in mind when designing the elements brought in, the house is already meticulously decorated and on point, so I did not want to compete with the décor. With that in mind I tried to take my love of orange in a different direction and focused on corals and peach tones for the décor and bridesmaids.

Ahhh, poppy perfection. They worked with Mayesh Wholesale + The Urban Gardener to come up with the best bouquet. Just a day before the wedding they went with locally grown Icelandic poppies and had to control the opening process in order to create an absolutely perfect bunch.

Cheers!

Aqua and gold wedding ideas | Photo by Tasha Rae Photography | 100 Layer Cake

If you’ve never considered the possibility of gold + aqua for your wedding colors, time to add it to your list of potential palettes. Surrounded by crisp wedding whites, the gold leaf and dip dye textures that Stephanie of Roses and Lace styled up added an air of sophistication to such a playful color combo, and we totally dig the end result…

Thanks to Tasha Rae Photography for sharing these photos with us today!

The team wanted to take the classic floral archway a step further with the dip dyed backdrop, and it ended up setting the mood for the rest of the details – like the table settings, décor, and neutral flowers.

All the fresh greenery at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is quite the sight. Stephanie tells us, The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is an intimate wedding venue surrounded by old brick, trees, and the sounds of the French Quarter. When we designed the shoot, our main purpose was to take the garden setting and add a pop of creative details to it.

Modern bohemian wedding | Photo by Max and Friends | Event design Amorology | 100 Layer Cake

We’re sure glad photogs Christian + Reinna captured even the tiniest details of Jacyln and Tommy’s bohemian backyard wedding. Hailing from San Diego + Phoenix, their hometowns were the inspiration for their southwestern romance theme, and according to Jacyln, it was the stuff of desert dreams. (We believe it.) They transformed her childhood home into a boho oasis for 250 that rivals even the grandest venues, and the team at Amorology played up the theme with a ton of southwest inspired accents.

This little anecdote made us smile:

When we came out of our church’s ceremony, we were hungry, and went straight to In-N-Out with our entire wedding party, dressed to the nines. We caused quite a stir, but I thought, I’m the bride, and when else can I look this gorgeous eating a hamburger? Love and hamburgers, that’s what it’s all about.

A few deets from Amorology… Playing off of a dreamcatchers theme, we created a backdrop reading “Today is a dream” and used Casa de Perrin‘s gorgeous china, a collection of different vessels, wood menus with laser cut antlers, brass to house Twigg Botanicals succulents, and turquoise rocks.

(Peruse Jacyln’s Pinterest for even more inspo.)

The venue, via Jaclyn:

It’s my home, but transformed. The tennis court was metamorphosed into a tented outdoor garden. We brought in grass to cover the floor, draped tapestries lightly over head, just enough to be inside but still under the stars, and a stage for the band was erected.

Our band, the Wayne Foster Band, sang us into the reception, and set the mood for the rest of the party. Our walk down the aisle transitioned right into our first dance. The song was “I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis. We are 90s kids, so an airy and sugary love song was just what we wanted.

Jaclyn says, Once I stepped back and let Heather of Amorology take the reins, I actually got to enjoy my engagement. You’re only engaged for a short time, so be sure to take it all in. Don’t rush through.

Congrats guys! Cakies, stay tuned for more aqua goodness later today. We’re kinda on a roll.
