Summer Faves


I met you in the summer to my heartbeat's sound...

As the season draws to a close today, we're fondly reminiscing over our favorite parts of the summer. We've seen so many beautiful weddings come to fruition and have bid farewell and congrats to so many of our lovely, darling couples (we already miss you all!), and we can't help wanting to share all the things that have brought smiles to our faces and remind us of the good times this season.

Favorite color palette
We did an earthy palette we still dream about with ambers, blush, rust, sky blues, and lots of greens...

Favorite wedding style
We loved mixing things up this summer with a little modern and moody out in palm springs. Kept even the desert cool!

Favorite floral element
We were smitten with blueberries on the vine, found our florist eating them throughout set up, haha!

Favorite "Something Blue"
It's a toss up between the amazing blue velvet pow wow disco couch, hostess haven's custom indigo dyed napkins, all the pretty blue fabrics we used this summer. So many pretty blues we can't pick just one!

Loving this venue
Our bride's grandmother's backyard, like a magic secret garden...

Most Memorable Summer Moment
When the guests decided to move the dance party to the pool, literally ending the party with a splash!

Random Fun Favorites

  • Avocados on everything, especially toast. (Pro-tip: top with the usual salt-n-peppa', but add some chia seeds, cayenne pepper, and lemon for the best breakfast in the world)
  • Iced Earl Gray tea with a splash of almond milk. Every day. Three times a day. (What's "moderation"?)
  • Tori Praver's sup's cute swim collab with Target. (Basically, $100 tops for $30. I know.)
  • Beach days! Can we just all finally agree that we all love tan lines? It's proof that you were outside for longer than the walk from the door to your car! I see someone with tan lines and I'm instantly jealous...
  • The secret cliff swing in La Jolla. (Location undisclosed. Get your own secret beach swing.)
  • That summer is always a good excuse for ice cream and popsicles!

Real Wedding: You're My Better Half


When Jen and Brian came to us, they had just cancelled their Dominican Republic destination wedding due to the Zika outbreak and had to move the celebration State-side. The couple wanted a place where they could surround themselves with the family and friends they would have been traveling with and luckily for us they turned to one of our favorite locations, Colony 29, where they could all gather together and stay nearby. The desert oasis set the perfect backdrop for their modern boho palette of dusty nudes and dark moody jewel tones of raspberry, muted turquoise, emerald, and magenta captures beautifully by Ashley Kelemen Photography.

As a nod to how their relationship developed – the couple met as neighbors in an apartment complex sharing a wall – Jen and Brian were married under a teepee to symbolize their two homes now becoming one. The Dainty Lion brought us wild and free blooms to adorn a ceremony and reception already surrounded by rose gardens, orchard trees, and flower vines. To lend a cocktail vibe, we brought in an eclectic mix of modern bohemian elements through Folklore and added candlelight and ambiance to the atmosphere with black taper candles and brass candlesticks. Guests dined at low tables with moroccan poufs or smaller clusters of tulip tables set with geode slabs and brass chargers from Hostess Haven. As we further got to know Jen and Brian, we learned that they while opposite in character they truly are each other's better half – and as such we decided to pay homage to this by hanging fringed hemispheres on a marble backdrop to represent two halves of the same moon. Guests also gathered their seating assignments here from calligraphed crystal moon rocks. Throughout the night, guests sipped on the Girl Next Door and the Neighbor Boy (a reference to the nickname for Brian coined lovingly by Jen's friends during their early courting days) and danced the night away. Guests were treated to a family style meal by MIHO catering, and in lieu of a traditional cake the couple opted for tray-passed mini-churros and hand pies.

The night was truly one of those perfect Palm Springs evenings, where guests gathered under the stars surrounded by painted hills to celebrate a love as bright as the desert moon.
