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.

From the Bride… My fiancé and I got married this past September in Palm Springs, California. A spot that is very special to us and a place that I wanted reflected in our wedding style. Being an event designer, I felt so lucky to have some of my best friends in the industry be a part and help create such a special day in our lives.

Apart from the ceremony, the event décor and feel of our wedding weekend was the most important to me. I wanted the décor to be classic and elegant, while also modern. I wanted our guests to feel the style of our wedding from the moment they received the save-the-date, cocktail recipe included. From our welcome party on Friday evening to the pool party on Sunday, we were focused on our guest’s enjoyment on their mini-getaway to the desert. We rented an estate for the weekend so all of our events could be held in one place. My goal was finding a spot that was going to let me create whatever I wanted and not be limited by a traditional venue. We wanted to play up all that our location had to offer without looking like it had a theme. We went with an all-white color palette, to contrast the lush greenery and had our pops of color in our floral décor. I wanted as many elements to be custom as possible and took on many DIY projects, most of them including lots of gold foil, another theme running throughout. My dad built all of our oversized wood signage, our bar façade and the altar where we got married, something that was very special to me. I collected vintage cocktail glasses for months to be used during our reception and had a polka dot dance floor with a chandelier hanging from a Palm Tree. All of the details made the reception feel more personal and reflective of our style.

We wanted to include special touches throughout the ceremony and reception that felt unique to our guests. My favorite of all was our confetti cannons that went off as we had our first kiss. Only our vendors and bridal party knew, so the reaction as it went off couldn’t have been more amazing. Another detail I had to have was Bonpuf. She was one of the first details I locked down when I began planning. The cotton candy was such a hit at cocktail hour!

Style Me Pretty has been such a place of inspiration to me and I love the weddings you choose to recognize. It is an amazing resource to me to go to when I am searching for creativity with other weddings I plan and was so helpful with planning my own.

From Photography by Paulina… Heather and Tommy started the day getting ready (and catching some rays by the pool!) in neighboring mid-century modern Palm Springs homes. Casa de Monte Vista was the perfect estate for their day–its intimate, elegant and romantic vibe was representative of its location in Palm Springs’ historic old Las Palmas neighborhood. The Spanish style architecture nestled among the Palm Trees made guests of the wedding feel right at home.

Heather was absolutely gorgeous in her Amy Kuschel gown–I loved its lace details! Everyone could see how much care and attention Heather and Tommy put into the details of their day. From their gorgeous invitations and welcome bags, Tommy’s succulent boutonniere, the custom copper bracelets heather gifted her bridesmaids, the hand lettered wooden signs cut by Tommy’s father and “LOVE” sign gifted by Heather’s bridesmaids, the farmhouse table decor and pretty florals, it’s clear that Heather and Tommy were surrounded by friends and family who loved them, and an incredible team of vendors who made their beautiful wedding day vision come to life. Heather and Tommy are two incredibly kind, loving, and easy-going people and it was such an honor to document their fun wedding day!
