Desert bridal inspiration at The Ruin Venue

White Lace Bridal Jumpsuit

You’d think after all the Palm Springs weddings we’ve featured here on 100LC, we’d have felt at least a little over the desert at some point. But nope, this whole region is *still* magic to us. Probably because we’re always being turned onto hidden gems like The Ruin Venue, a venue and surreal desert landscape in Pioneertown that Sarah Falugo Photography teamed up with Lauren Talysa Santos at to show off some pretty rad bridal looks.

Any brides-to-be considering a jumpsuit? Even for just the reception, this Principessa piece is tops.

Sarah of Sarah Falugo Photography says, When I discovered The Ruin Venue, I just knew I had to shoot there. What a surreal and magical place it is! I cannot quite describe the electric buzz I feel in this landscape. I adore working with alternative couples who think outside of the box with their wedding planning. My clients are very creative and I wanted to show them this exceptional venue with some great styling ideas for a laid back and alternative wedding look.

We choose a minimalistic theme of blacks and whites with various wedding looks for alternative brides. Tanya from The Old Fashioned Caravan whipped up a few tasty cocktails on site, including a classic White Russian to compliment our black and white theme.
