This donut bar? It’s the thing of dreams. Guests enjoyed every flavor you could ever want, but that’s only one piece of this perfect day. Captured by Ether & Smith, it’s an al fresco party done so right and we’re welcoming it into The Vault!
From Honey Honey Photography… I knew immediately that Jenn & Mike’s wedding was going to be phenomenal when she said she was a wedding planner…and that they were planning on having donuts. And we all know a wedding with donuts is a good wedding. Jenn further described her colors to be red, blue, and white – but not just any red, blue, and white, they were well-curated shades, from a coral-red to a periwinkle-blue to the literal colors on the stunning and unique bridesmaids dresses.
Jenn chose a Monique Lhuillier corset paired with the prettiest full skirt – a match made in heaven. Guests were welcomed with champagne and popsicles on the front yard of a private estate in Palm Springs. The bride and groom exchanged vows and rings under a tree on the front lawn, with a beautiful garland arch that hung so naturally it seemed it was part of the tree. Mirrors were a big inspiration and were used as signs throughout the wedding. The reception was one the highlights – Jenn & Mike’s friends and family were seated at long grand tables with a custom bag with their names and a baguette. Palm trees soaring up high and the warm desert breeze as the perfect ambiance. Not only were the donuts impeccable, so was the cake, with its pink marbling and gold flecks, they were almost too beautiful to eat! The night came and so did the dancing – the perfect way to end their special day.
