a summer wedding photo shoot - the ace hotel, palm springs

this photo shoot was a brainchild of jesi haack...she wanted to do something bright and funky at the ace hotel in palm springs...when she sent me the color scheme i was so excited - fuschia, orange, navy and pale blue - yes please!! a desert vibe was incorporated with chevron patterns, tumbleweeds, denim and canvas twine...overall an awesome blend of classic palm springs with a modern, vibrant edge!

how amazing are these hot pink chiavari chairs?!



i alternated monochromatic orange and fuschia floral arrangements...jesi planted baby pink cacti with wood hearts to serve as the placecards AND favors...


the bridal bouquet was a mix of hot pink garden roses, orange and fuschia ranunculas, blue thistle, yellow acacia and salmon colored anthirium...




some of the vases were textured white ceramic that i wrapped in fuschia thread...


and the other vases were glass cylinders that i wrapped in denim jeans - pockets included!!



super adorable menu created by amber at pitbulls+posies...also, a close up of a "denim pocket" vase i made...


all of the awesome chevron fabric used for the custom table runner and napkins was sourced by jesi...


i wrapped the bouquet in a burnt orange rustic ribbon and a braid i made out of come canvas twine...


the boutonniere was blue thistle, yellow acacia and canvas twine...and how rad is that bolero tie that jesi asked the groom to wear?!



cactus coolers were the drink of choice...a combo of vodka, pineapple juice, mint and cucumber!



jesi brought these cute pink soda bottles and i wrapped them in some extra denim fabric and canvas twine to give it that desert feel...


ooooohhhhh....this cake...it has to be one of my favorites EVER! melody from sweet and saucy hand painted the stunning chevron pattern and topped it with an orange gloriosa lily sugar flower...amazing right?


another highlight of the shoot was the heart shaped ceremony arch that jesi created out of tumbleweeds - so creative AND cost effective!! i loved it!



all the stationary had abstract pink tumbleweeds on them to fit with the theme...and i adored the laid back font that amber chose...






super cute guest book idea from jesi, using perler beads...amber's signage for it was also genius..."i'll stop the world and melt with you"?? i mean, come on!
