Ace Hotel wedding: Ashley + Kris

Categories   Real Weddings

Wedding Paper Divas invitations

Remember this adorable couple from their Joshua Tree engagement shoot? They’re married! And they celebrated in one of our favorite places to soak up the sun, Palm Springs. Having good friend, Teresa Lo (also one of A’s bridesmaids), recently starting her own event planning company, Tala Events, Ashley was in good hands. She gave her all the inspiration she had gathered from wedding blogs, and had the talent of Hollin Brodeur behind both the photography and videography. Dream wedding accomplished.

Start planning far in advance so that you can relax the last few weeks before your wedding and enjoy your day! If you are clueless like I was when planning a wedding and are fortunate to have a talented friend, have them help you get organized or hire a wedding coordinator. Take at least 10 minutes on your wedding day to walk around and really soak in all of the details (bring a plate of food with you)! Lastly, appreciate the time with your husband and have fun while taking your wedding photos because this will probably be the only time you will have a moment to enjoy each other.

Their video, also shot by Hollin Brodeur is just as sweet as their photos. Watch all the way through – it has the cutest ending!

Congrats Ashley + Kris!

this is indeed my kind of wedding. loved the flowers and the dress! on Sep 29, 2012

It’s the first time I’ve heard of these accessories called as statement necklaces and I think that it fits. They really are something to be worn with attitude, now that I look at one in your photo. Have you worn this already? What was the occasion? Did you wear it with a dress? on Sep 29, 2012

I would also love to hear who designed the invitations - I love them!

Jill on Oct 30, 2012

To everyone asking about the invites, they are from either Wedding Paper Divas or Minted. I was a bridesmaid and I know she ordered them from one of those.

Lia Griffith on Jun 3, 2013

I am the one who designed the invitations. So happy you like them! She purchased them from Wedding Paper Divas, but they are now available at Hope that helps!

Blog Hacked on Jul 6, 2013

A large percentage of of what you state happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me ponder why I hadn't looked at this in this light previously. This particular article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. However there is just one factor I am not necessarily too comfortable with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core theme of your issue, allow me see just what all the rest of the visitors have to say.Well done.
