Boho Bridal Tribe, get ready for your jaws to drop!! This Southwestern wedding has it all! From the desert-inspired venue and dusty blush color palette to the lace wedding dress and epic reception florals, this day is what dreams are made of! With the help of Fawn Events, Danielle + Wade had their bohemian wedding at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs and the results are sure to blow you away!
D shares how they scored the perfect venue:
Both of our families are from different areas and some are pretty spread out, but we knew we wanted to get married in January, so we wanted it to be somewhere warm during the winter. We were living in Orange County and toured a few venues in the area, but we didn’t really connect with any of those places. We decided to spend my birthday weekend in Palm Springs and scope out a few venues there. Immediately, Wade and I knew the Ace was perfect. It had a unique and laid back vibe and would ensure our family and friends would be close all weekend long.
Vee Taylor Photo was there to capture the magic. Ready to take a peek? Let’s go!
Hang out by the pool before getting ready? Yes please! D and her girls had the cutest getting ready robes from Romwe. If this is on your wedding to-do list, we’ve got a round up of the best robes for you and your bridesmaids!
D + W had their first look at the botanical garden! The results? Southwestern wedding GOALS!
W looked handsome in classic black attire from The Black Tux.
D was giving us major boho bridal babe vibes in this stunning Willow by Watters gown. She shares how she found the dream dress:
I found my dress at Love and Lace Bridal in Irvine. After going to a handful of places, I had tried on about 30 dresses. I thought I found my dress and wanted to come back to Love and Lace to try it on one more time, but thought I would browse through a couple more to try on. My dress ended up being the very last dress I tried on and my friend and sister-in-law convinced me to just try it on even though I was tired of looking. Once I put the dress on I knew it was perfect. The long bell sleeves and delicate lace were exactly what I was looking for! I immediately purchased the dress.
The Wedding Party
Dusty Blush for the win!! D’s gals looked stunning in Show Me Your Mumu bridesmaids dresses that matched the color palette and neutral setting perfectly!
Southwestern Wedding Ceremony
Intentional Blooms designed this dreamy bohemian floral installation of pampas grass, palm leaves, roses, anthurium, and babies breath. STUN-NING!
Wade - The vows! As Danielle was saying her vows I whispered “you got me” because I didn’t expect to tear up.
Danielle - My favorite part was our first dance. We know every word to the song and it means a lot to us. When Wade and I were dating in college, I told him I wanted to dance to this song when I got married and we did just that.
Let the wedded bliss begin!
Processional: Stand By Me - Florence and the Machine & I’m With You - Vance Joy
Recessional: Electric Love - Borns
First Dance: Part One - Band of Horses
The Happy Family
Sweet doggos at weddings always get us. In fact, we put together a helpful list of creative ways you can incorporate man’s best friend into your wedding day!
We also wanted to incorporate pieces of ourselves, so we had an artist sketch up a drawing of us with our dog and printed it onto stickers as favors. Our dog was an important part of our wedding as well. He wore his bow tie and got to be a Jr. Best Man.
Driving 20 minutes away from the venue for these windmill shots? Worth it!!
The day of your wedding is an entire whirlwind. It goes by fast, so soak it all in and take a moment to appreciate each other.
Floral Filled Reception
D + W brought the southwestern wedding vibes inside their reception space with a neutral color palette, hanging florals and lots of natural textures.
Hostess Haven provided the tabletop rentals and we’re loving the mix of metals, textures and materials!
Sweetheart Table Goals
Planks & Patina provided the furniture rentals and we have to say that these peacock chairs for the sweetheart table are everything!!
D + W had the perfect naked cake from Over The Rainbow Desserts! We’ll have a slice and take a donut too please!
Wade and I both wanted a wedding that was relaxed and felt more like a celebration. From the music choices to the taco bar and churros, and vintage San Diego Photo Bus, our wedding truly felt like us.
