Did you catch our recap of the Palm Springs dinner party we shared yesterday here on le blog? Pretty great, right? If you’re into Palm Springs venues as much as we are, consider this post your guide: Last month, we were lucky to tour several Palm Springs venues with The Venue Report + The Wedding Artists Collective, and it was nothing short of amazing! Hillary Angel of the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism showed us all each place has to offer. Take a look for yourself below…

Each caftan clad lady got a custom map The Venue Report designed with Mae Mae Paperie, outlining the tour and with fun facts about each venue stop. How cute are these Palm Springs totes by Anthony & Stork?

Alright, so we kicked things off at the Frederick Loewe Estate in Little Tuscany. It’s an expansive, private midcentury modern space with four bedrooms, a tennis court, spa, pool, firepit, and rose garden, to name a few perks. Need we say more? It’s the perfect venue for a private garden wedding over looking Palm Springs.

Next up, Colony 29

A little background… Colony 29 is surrounded by 6 acres of botanical gardens, mountain views, and lush landscapes. It was formerly an artist colony and has 6 homes with three outdoor venues and overnight accommodations. And can you beat this pool?! We honestly felt like we were not in Palm Springs anymore. It was such a nice change from all the modern architecture that you’re accustomed to in the area. What a beautiful backdrop for a wedding or honeymoon this would be.

Stop #3 was El Portal Estate in the Mesa neighborhood of Palm Springs: With bistro seating, bright yellow umbrellas, saltwater pool, gas firepit. This stunning 4 bedroom 3.5 bathroom, 3,000 square foot luxury home is gated from the street on its very private 1/4 acre lot, making it a safe and secure property with magnificent desert views and surroundings.

Korakia dinner party | Photos by The Wedding Artist Collective | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81381

Morning cakies! We’re so excited to share this one with ya. Recently 100lc took a trip over to Palm Springs for The Wedding Artists Collective’s Collective Gatherings dinner at the ever-beautiful Korakia (learn more about this fab venue here). Thought we’d take a few moments to relive this magical evening and share our fave details.

Thanks to Josh Goleman + Gary Ashley of The Wedding Artists Collective for capturing all the details.

Lisa of The Wedding Artists Collective decided on Korakia for the venue…

Korakia for me is what I imagine the fountain of youth would be…It feels so good there, so relaxed and beautiful. The staff pays attention to the little details without anything feeling too fussed over. So when conceiving of the next Collective Gathering it was an obvious choice and thankfully Korakia generously agreed to host us. With all of its natural, rustic beauty Korakia is breathtaking the way it is but I knew if we brought in the right design elements we could make an environment that was truly magical.

The eclectic hotel + already-stunning landscape inspired the entire design. Megan of Enjoy Events Co. says, I knew I wanted to design the table in neutrals with black, stone plates, brass chargers, copper cups and wood flatware to set a simple yet refined look. In keeping the tabletop neutral also meant clean, modern paper goods.

Rustic watercolor wedding inspiration | Photo by Anthem Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81311

We love when an event comes off as beautifully simple, and yet is filled to the brim with small, stunning details. For today’s watercolor wedding editorial, event designer Mona of Birds & Honey portrayed a couple who wanted an organic wedding that celebrated their romance without all the bells and whistles. Simple as that.

Thanks to Anthem Photography for sharing these photos with us today!

Mona says, For the overall feel of this editorial my motto was “embrace simplicity”. Time and time again, the most transparent vision is often times the most simple.
