The Ruin Romantica

Tara LaTour bridal gown

K, instantly enamored with that pink Tara LaTour gown over here (and wait till you see the back of it). Everything Marisa of Seven Stems brought together for this editorial Evangeline Lane captured over near Joshua Tree was chosen to complement the desert landscape of The Ruin Venue. Whether it’s in your own wedding planning or a dinner party when the temps finally rise, you’ll definitely want to take inspiration from this one…

The team also loved the idea of putting on a decadent dinner party in such a simple, natural space. Mission accomplished, as you’ll see totally proven in the details below.

We wanted to create a very romantic feel bringing elegance to such a deconstructed environment, focusing on texture but complementing the colors of the desert. We wanted it to be very inspiring but reachable with a unique dress, lots of accessories… One of a kind but nothing that felt so out of the box that a real bride couldn’t relate or even recreate.

Al fresco desert dining, we’re all over it. Such a unique take on a desert design too.

And you know there’s gotta be a killer cake too, right? Uh huh…
