Whimsical Palm Springs Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Studio Castillero

I just about jumped out of my seat when I saw this wedding from Studio Castillero. It’s at one of my all-time favorite venues, The Parker Palm Springs, has the incredible talent of Sitting in a Tree Events and The Floral Lab, and, well, it just exudes coolness. Prepare yourself for some bright party action to perk up the start of your weekend!

From the bride, Jenny: We really wanted our wedding to embrace the vibe of the Parker and Palm Springs. To be bright, fun, quirky and whimsical.

The look of our wedding was bright, bohemian, and a little bit quirky. We used a lot of personal elements in the décor, such as my grandma’s vintage tea cups and family silver. We also spent the year picking up trinkets, vases and other decorative elements at flea markets and thrift stores. A girlfriend and I picked out the fabric for the runners and had them made. I really wanted our wedding to have an eclectic feel but used shades of oranges, yellows and pinks to help tie the look together.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Choose a photographer that you love. Our photos truly captured our wedding weekend and I remember a new story, ridiculous dance move, feeling or moment each time I look through them. Hire a wedding coordinator (we used a month/day of). They were fantastic and ensured that every detail was taken care of so that Matt and I could enjoy our day with our friends and family.

Urban Brunch Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ali Vagnini

About five seconds flat is exactly how long it took us to fall in love with this styled shoot from Ali Vagnini, Hey! Party Collective, and European Flower Shop. The shoot effortlessly blends modern wedding style with a reception full of delicious brunch goodies, including a delicious mimosa bar we wish we could have experienced first-hand!

From the shoot designers, Hey! Party Collective: The inspiration behind this shoot was to create a very bold and modern wedding, while showing the great urban backdrop that is the city of Denver — as an alternative to a “Rocky Mountain” wedding. This city has some great industrial and modern venues that can inject instant personality into a wedding, while still creating a beautiful aesthetic. We also wanted to work with an unexpected color palette, mixing both colors, textures, and patterns in an interesting way.

Ali from European Flower Shop made the huge greenery frame for the backdrop to the altar. We loved the contrast against the corrugated metal fence. The bride’s bouquet added the perfect pop of color to create the overall look. Also, we are obsessed with this cut-out wedding dress from designer Lovey by Isha. It really represents our philosophy of pushing the envelope, yet keeping it sophisticated.

Calming Baltic Sea Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

All it took was a single glance at this incredible greenery wreath on water to know we were completely under the spell of this styled shoot, courtesy of Muravnik Photography‘s workshop in Russia. The entire scene takes place on hazy beach, proving that a beach wedding doesn’t have to be sunny to be an absolute stunner. Thank you to Atmosphere Wed and Tatiana Bugaeva for contributing your talents on this one!
