Quick! Describe your dream day in 10 words or less! If you’re thinking bohemian, in the desert, celestial, Spanish-influenced, romantic, edgy, and/or mystical, you’d get along well with the team at Sitting in a Tree. This is exactly how Christine + Charles envisioned their day, much to the delight (and expertise!) of the Sitting in a Tree team. They agreed on a color palette of quartz, violet, ivory and chambray tones – how could you go wrong with such a dreamy scheme?! Throw in a mix of Palm Springs, florals that pop, and starry design elements, and you’ve set the stage for C+C’s perfect day.
Christine gave us a little more insight into the day’s inspiration: When we were dating we’d drive to the desert to unwind and take in the scenery. We love the laid back atmosphere and beautiful backdrop the sky offers. We were inspired by all the colors of the desert and also wanted to include celestial touches because of our love of space and astronomy. We wanted our wedding to make our guest feel at home and also include some Spanish influences to point back to my culture. We fell in love with Casa de Monte Vista and couldn’t think of a better place that had all the things we wanted to include.
Trisha of Birds of a Feather was the talented photographer on hand, capturing beautiful moments between Christine + Charles, and all their lovely details!
SO PRETTY! The most lush and dreamy bouquet by Bloom Babes!
And…cue the collective “awww”!
Processional: Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley
Recessional: Canticle of the Sun by Marty Haugen
First Dance: That's How Strong My Love Is by Otis Redding
Hand-painted metal moons for the table seating! The paper goods and calligraphy throughout really brought in the celestial elements that C+C envisioned, all beautifully designed and created by Twinkle & Toast!
No big deal, only the coolest “placemats” we’ve ever seen.
Don't sweat the small stuff. We saw our wedding not only a celebration of our love, but also a celebration for all our friends and family that showed us love along the journey. We wanted that to be the main focus and decided from the beginning that every extra detail was just a plus. It helped to find amazing planners that really understood our vision, as well.
How fun are these embroidered table numbers!
One of the reasons I really love Charles is because of his sense of humor. True to his fashion, he made a joke before the cake cutting and we both couldn't stop laughing. We still have a laugh every time we think of that moment and look at it as a time during the craziness of the day that was truly our own.
Yum!! Love the details from this day and the sweet couple behind it. Congrats to Christine + Charles!
