Good wedding inspiration makes you feel like you’re there just from the photos, and the Palm Springs vibes in this inspiration shoot are so strong, you’ll feel the Southern California sunshine, smell the citrus and blooming flowers, and soak in the serenity of a cocktail by the pool! Moose Studio and Alicia C Creative envisioned a colorful and whimsical day filled with retro touches inspired by the setting at Condor’s Nest Ranch and this shoot offers the mini-vacation we wish we all could take right now!
Letters by Melissa got into the colorful spirit with these playful brush stroke invitations! The signature color scheme of pink, yellow, and green made its first appearance in vibrant style with Palm Springs vibes!
When in doubt, Bella Belle Shoes are the best way to sparkle!
The bride looked incredible in a lace wedding dress from Saint Clark Bridal with a slim-A-line silhouette and halter neckline for the perfect Southern California breezy look! To play up the open back of the wedding dress, hair stylist and makeup artist Christina Lopez opted for a low chignon hairstyle with a side part – it perfectly enhanced the romance of the bride’s dress!
To keep the ceremony feeling light and breezy, Alicia C Creative used airy white drapery and Moonlight Florals Co supplemented with greenery and vines. The backdrop of Condor’s Nest Ranch and the gorgeous couple became the focal point under the bright summer sun.
To truly capture bright Palm Springs vibes for this shoot, Moonlight Florals Co opted for colorful flowers in pink, coral, yellow, and orange! The candy-colored bouquet was reminiscent of retro stucco houses in the desert, with added greenery and a long yellow ribbon to flutter in the breeze.
Sunrose Studios captured some of the floral details on canvas for a memorable wedding day keepsake!
A white tablescape with pops of color created the most beautiful reception! Lace place mats added whimsical texture to the retro pink china and white dipped flatware, with colorful summer flowers and citrus adding to the beautiful centerpieces.
Grace and Honey Cakes blended the signature colors into a watercolor cake with peach, pink and gold frosting. The inspiration behind it – strawberry ice cream cones on a hot summer day!
Cocktails by the pool, anyone? Mia’s Martini served up a mid-century bar cart for the perfect Palm Springs touch! The sparkling pool served as the perfect cocktail party setting to relax and unwind with a cool drink in a coconut! Letters by Melissa created the acrylic bar sign with a splash of bright color to give guests their options for a frosty drink by the pool!
Grab a coconut – it’s time to party!
A chilled whiskey smash or frosty lemonade mimosa offered the perfect cool-down – especially enjoyed with your toes in the pool!
The fun retro striped umbrellas at Condor’s Nest Ranch inspired the color palette and Palm Springs vibes of this whimsical wedding inspiration!
