We gave you guys a sneak peek of this wedding over on The Bride’s Guide a few weeks ago, but today…we have the full shebang. And it’s really good. In fact, it just might be the coolest wedding we’ve ever put up thanks in large part the bride’s killer style and to the collaboration between Kelsey of Alison Events and Danielle of Brown Paper Design. This wedding is the epitome of California Chic and Max Wanger’s photographs tell the story to perfection.
From Kelsey…Lizzie and Matt were married at The Parker in Palm Springs. They chose the hotel for its funky ambiance and mid century glamour as well as it’s close proximity to Los Angeles where many of their guests were traveling from. It was important to them to have a wedding location that was a laid back, fun gathering place for all their guests to spend the weekend together.
Most people arrived Thursday night greeted with custom a Maptote bag filled with hand-picked personal favorites of the bride and groom, like lobster gummy candy, In and Out Burger notepads, Hadley’s date cookies, and saltwater taffy. The couple kicked off the weekend with cocktail hour around the Parker firepit complete with a s’mores roasting station. They were welcomed to the Parker with a custom Maptote bag filled with hand picked personal favorites of the bride and groom like lobster gummy candy, In and Out Burger notepads, Hadley’s date cookies, and salt water taffy. Friday night all the guests were bussed off property to a local Mexican restaurant, Las Casuelas Nuevas for a low key rehearsal dinner celebration. They chowed down on traditional Mexican fare while the mariachi band serenaded the guests into the evening.
Saturday was the big day. Lizzie and Matt rented out the Gene Autry residence at the Parker as the main gathering area for all wedding party and family members. The front door was adorned with a huge L and M made out of flowers by Brown Paper Design so all the important people knew they had come to the right place. Fiore Beauty out of Los Angeles set up shop inside the residence and had a full blown hair and makeup production line going. Lizzie let her bridesmaids pick out their own dresses from J Crew in any jewel tone of their choosing. The result was a rainbow of girls which fit in perfectly with the eclectic feel of the wedding.
