Southwestern Palm Springs Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

I think we’ve all noticed a recent uptick in the trend of southwestern wedding style, and I for one am thrilled to see all the different looks under this umbrella! Photographer Abi Q and Enjoy Events Co. joined forces in this phenomenal Palm Springs wedding to bring us some seriously beautiful nuptials. Can I just say how madly in love I am with the couple’s modern wedding invitations?

From the bride, Nicole: We wanted the wedding to be modern and fresh, but also a little bit bohemian to incorporate our love of vintage finds. We were inspired by the location – at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains – to incorporate natural elements of the surrounding landscape to keep the decor feeling earthy and not overly done.

I fell in love with the gown immediately. It had a modern shape, which I was looking for, but was still very feminine and romantic. I also loved the texture of the fabric – I thought it was perfect for my fall wedding. I found the dress at Nordstrom with my mother, she helped me decide on the dress and also purchased it for me – it was something she had been looking forward to forever – very sweet.

The color scheme was inspired by the desert: pale peach, smoky persimmon, bone, agave green, natural linen. The mid-century modern architecture in Palm Springs inspired the lounge area and bentwood dining chairs – dipped in white and turquoise for a pop of color. Tribal print textiles were incorporated throughout the decor – from Ikat and Navajo throw pillows to brightly colored chevrons painted on the pedestals that flanked the ceremony location. Loose ribbons adorned the backs chairs of the bride and groom. Guests waved wands of feathers and ribbon as the new couple were announced. Succulent seating cards, place settings, menus, invitations, and all other paper goods were DIY by the groom, who is a brand identity designer.

Day-After Wedding Session

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

While wedding days have their own romantic magnetism, there’s something extra-special about the day after. The newlyweds are together in their first full day as husband and wife, after saying their I do’s in front of friends + family and dancing the night away. The day after is just the two of them. That’s what Kristy and Kevin did, bringing along the duo from Lang Photographers. We’re madly in love with her black wedding gown and paper bouquet!

We’ve seen the images from Delbarr Moradi for Brian and Irene’s wedding, and now it’s time to see the full day in action! With a wedding theme of “love and hearts,” it’s hard to believe the couple’s wedding video would be anything other than sweet as pie. Our thanks go out to Michael Baca for sharing this film with us.
