Safari Inspired Palm Springs Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Annie McElwain

When bride Lisa didn’t know quite where to start in planning her wedding, she turned to the most natural of inspirations: her home shared with groom Lenny. The couple picked fabrics and colors that reminded them of some favorite motifs — wallpapers, upholstery, or a favorite t-shirt. Leave the rest to the dream team of Annie McElwain, Sitting in a Tree Events, and The Floral Lab for one beautiful wedding recipe!

From the bride, Lisa: In the perfect world we would have had a backyard wedding, but unfortunately our backyard isn’t big enough. We chose the La Casa courtyard at La Quinta Resort for it’s backyard vibe and because we knew the resort would be a perfect place for our guests to spend a relaxing weekend. We set the date almost sixteen months before the wedding so we had plenty of time to figure out exactly what we wanted and make or find all of the personal touches. There were several sunrise trips to the Rose Bowl flea market to find vintage furniture and suitcases, hours spent on eBay finding vintage table coverings and blue mason jars and many late nights spent with the sewing machine or hand stamping place cards but it was so worth it.

We didn’t have a color scheme or even a theme in mind but we knew that we wanted everything to have our personal touch on it. With this in mind, we chose a few fabrics that reminded us of things in our home (wallpaper, a chair covering, a favorite shirt) and we used them as a jumping off point for the rest of the design. Along with my mom and my bridesmaids, I sewed runners for every table, pennants to decorate the cocktail hour, and favor bags to be filled with my mother’s homemade salted pumpkin caramels. I used the same fabric as a backdrop for the “safari” table in the cocktail hour. As a big thank you to all of the guests that contributed to our honeymoon safari, I mounted papier maché animal heads in vintage picture frames (collected from Goodwill) and staged them with vintage suitcases and a homemade chalkboard sign thanking our guests. We continued the “safari” theme with hundreds of miniature animal figurines that we spray-painted gold all over the dining tables.

We customized the family style dinner menu to serve things that we often make at home and served wine from a vineyard down the road from my parents’ house. We couldn’t decide on just one cake so we chose a lemon/rosemary olive oil cake and a salted-caramel chocolate cake. Everyone said the food was wonderful (we didn’t have time to eat!). We loved DJ Swon who kept everyone dancing for hours and I am so happy that we chose Magnolia for our photo booth- we have great photos of all of our guests. It was truly the best party that my husband and I have ever been to!

Plan My Wedding Please

Ever since I was in grade school, I was obsessed with my penmanship. I would not turn in my homework until it was perfect; it drove my mom crazy! I practiced writing every chance I had and eventually fell in love with this art form. Little did I know, it would be the reason I would fall in love with the wedding industry.

Plan My Wedding Please exists to make every wedding and event magical. My role as wedding planner and calligraphy artist, as cliche as it sounds, is to make your wildest dreams come true. From the little details in signage and invitations, to the big details in wedding gowns, caterers and florals, every detail is important. Every young girl dreams of her wedding day, and I am here to make those dreams become reality. I look forward to working with you!

Day After Lifestyle Session

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Vicky Starz

With today’s shoot from Sweet Woodruff and Vicky Starz Photography, we’re taking a bit of our detour from the normal styled session. This shoot is one part sweet, one part daring, and a heaping dose of ooh-la-la appeal thrown in for good measure. This no-frills approach to the day after the engagement is everything we love, all tied up in a pretty little package:

indoor styled sessions

From the stylist, Lisa Collins of Sweet Woodruff: The inspiration for this shoot was the cool couples we work with, couples that have a great sense of style and a fun sense of humour. We love hearing our couples’ stories: how they met, how they fell in love, how he proposed. So we wanted to capture that love and beauty in the simplicity of just being with each other and that warm feeling of being at home – the place that’s just for the two you.

When I was styling the shoot, I envisioned how our couple would be spending the night of their engagement, how he would pop the question and they would celebrate, just the two of them, simply, over red wine and cake. But it was the “day after” that I really wanted to tell the story of. Because that’s when the couple really gets to revel in their engagement — spending the whole day at home, wrapped up in each other. I imagined our bride-to-be in sweet outfits she would wear around the house. I wanted her to be really sexy, but still playful. I wanted her to still feel like herself. Fortnight’s lingerie really allowed us to convey that, with their gorgeous, vintage inspired pieces that are so wearable. Emily Sara Pike really completed the look by creating day-after smoky eyes, and the perfect disheveled bed-head. (Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to look effortless.)

I wanted the flowers to be really romantic and natural. I imagined our groom bringing them home as a sweet surprise, filling the house with her favourite blooms. The Bespoken Fine Quality Print cards we used for the shoot were perfectly in keeping with our sexy and playful, but down-to-earth theme. The stunning hand-printed cards are witty, simple and to the point. Perfect little love letters that punctuated our story. Vicky’s photography captured exactly the mood we were trying to set. Soft, simple and natural. We wanted to keep the look authentic, not “over-done” and Vicky managed to do just that.
