Palm Springs, California is known for a number of things, but in our circles it’s known first and foremost as a destination for some of the coolest weddings we’ve ever seen. Jared and Hollie’s wedding at The O’Donnell House was full of great design, quirkiness, and fun – the ideal recipe for an amazing day, especially when paired with the always-wonderful photography of EPlove!

From the bride, Hollie: Jared and I knew we wanted a party. We wanted an informal vibe with breathtaking views. It’s Palm Springs in November – so the weather doesn’t get any better than that. We wanted our friends and families who traveled to be there for our big day to relish in the beauty that is the California desert! I wanted to keep things simple, but provide opportunities for our loved one to create memorable moments!

Our wedding was easy breezy romantic with a rowdy-party vibe :) I told the girls to pick out their own dresses but asked to wear a natural soft neutral and the boys were asked to wear shades of grey. The venue grounds are SO INSANELY gorgeous that I just wanted to complement them. The homemade dreamcatchers – all 80 of them – were handmade by my mama! We found antique doliles on etsy; and the feathers/beads had been collected over many years by a friend who makes jewelry! The beautiful ceremony arch was hand carved out of wood by Jared’s brother!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1- Take dance lessons. It was the best thing for us. During all the craziness of our wedding planning, plus working our demanding jobs – we barely had any us time. When we would go to our dance lessons we had a chance to slow down and connect to one another. To be in the moment and be in love! 2- Hire superstars. Our wedding was the best day ever because of the people who we asked to help execute our vision and they all killed it!
