If ever there was a wedding to get you excited about the new year, Spring and Summer, it’s this one! It’s casual, clean, chic and the perfect mix of Mid Century Modern and Hollywood Regency. All in the perfect sizzling setting of the Viceroy in Palm Springs. Try to spot one detail in this wedding that’s not white, sunshine yellow or grey, you can’t. From escort cards designed in the shape of the iconic Eames chair and Jonathan Adler sculptures, this wedding was ace. As Michelle states, “no detail is too small!”.
My dear friend and creative genius, Anna Cowie, offered the ever kind gift of designing our invitation. We had been working together for years so she really understood our style. I decided on the colours and put together a mood board for the theme I wanted create. Anna ran with it, and came back with a design that perfectly reflected our personality. Every detail was thought through… the graphic silhouettes she designed are actually our real profiles. Brilliant!
Michelle designed the bridesmaid dresses and her mother made them!
A groom’s got to have some nice kicks!
Here are those Eames chair escort cards we were talking about. We might have to steal that idea for a party…
We wanted to spend our wedding budget on the things that really made a difference to the experience for us and our guests. We focused on ensuring there was great food, brilliant cocktails and a beautiful venue. We did most all of the décor, printing and trimming ourselves with friends and family kindly helping with all of the implementation and placement (really saved the day). I used some of my personal collection of Jonathan Adler sculptures to bring a touch of quirkiness, personality and a warm residential feel to the outdoor environment.
How M + R rocked their music:
Music was a very important part of the wedding for us so it was a must to have the talented English DJ Chris spin the tunes for the event. We selected music themes for each portion of the event. For the ceremony we chose some grooves from the 80’s… the wedding party trotted in to “Bittersweet Symphony” by Verve and “It Must Be Love” by Madness. I cheerfully walked down the green grass isle to “She’s the One” by Caribou. After tying the knot we all exited to “Modern Love” by David Bowie. For our first dance we chose something a bit upbeat to match our mood, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen.
There isn’t a better way to experience California living like a wedding in Palm Springs! Congratulations Michelle + Robin!
