Four years ago, on a weekend away of hiking and exploring, the team at Crosby and Jon stumbled upon Cabot’s Pueblo Museum in Desert Hot Springs. The homestead was built in 1941, in the style of the Hopi Native American tribe + used a ton of repurposed items during the construction. In addition to the pueblo, the grounds of the expansive property are stunning with natural desert elements, sun-dried brick and breathtaking Saguaro cacti reaching up towards the desert sky. Naturally, Crosby and Jon popped in to the gift shop and asked, “Do you guys do weddings here?” And sure enough, they do!
Flash forward to present day — their beloved photographed friend, Jasmine Star, wanted to do something “different.” As the Pueblo was calling back to Crosby and Jon, they thought it was the PERFECT opportunity to design something special. The inspiration came from an amalgam of things from other the years: Pink Himalayan salt, hand-dyed wool yarn, chunky turquoise. With the help of Archive Rentals, every detail came to fruition…
Just wait ’til you see the photos by Miss Jasmine Star + the gorgeous mix of copper + turquoise!!
Holy SMOKES! The bride donned a sophisticated, yet alternative, two-piece Katie May gown, along with striking and turquoise jewelry from a local jewelry designer.
Sandy hue paired with chic copper pieces, turquoise pops, and peachy pinks… Archive Rentals created one gorgeous boho chic lounge, which complemented the desert scene perfectly!
Complementing the bride’s natural beauty, Beauty by Melina created endless waves + curled those gorgeous lashes… Finishing everything off with a sun-kissed glow.
Worn stone walls and native desert plants framed the space…
With Cabot’s eclectic and rustic canvas, the goal was to create a wedding design that felt earthy, yet still soft and beautiful, with a youthful vibe. With a desert color palette of white, sand, turquoise, pale green and rosy peach, the team created a minimalist ceremony of wooden branches draped with delicate copper chains and pastel blooms.
For the reception, Crosby and Jon paired etched copper bowls and salt slabs with rose gold chairs and fine tabletop pieces from Archive Rentals. A romantic tablescape design of grey, blush and crystal complemented Krista Jon’s centerpieces of Sahara roses and tree peonies.
Sweet Cream Bake Shop crafted one decadent delight in the form of a two-tiered cake with blush buttercream frosting, adorned with natural salt pink rocks. As golden hour arrived, the rock salt was illuminated and glowed as if the cake were lit from within.
Isn’t this stunning?! We’re digging the chains with the hanging florals.
NO WORDS. Just pure perfection!!
How’s that for a cool vignette?! To give this lounge a bit of a masculine vibe, black leather chairs were brought in and paired with brass and slate tables. Vintage rugs were layered to define the space and add pattern.
What a team + what a combination! We seriously can’t get over how beautifully all those colors played together…
A huge thank you to all the creatives who poured their heart + soul into this!
