Cosmic Details and Plant Love Rule this Korakia Palm Springs Wedding

Cosmic Geometric Korakia Pensione Wedding

If you’ve never heard of the Korakia Pensione, you’re in for a treat today! Think: historic, restored villas, gardens, pools, antique details, all the colors of California and, of course, that dramatic keyhole door — all situated as a dreamy oasis in the middle of the dessert. Our love affair with Palm Springs is matched by artists and dreamers from all over, including Annie + Ken, the lovely bride and groom who traveled from New York to get married under the desert sun. These two love cosmic details and plants, so it’s no wonder they wanted to venture out to where the stars twinkle brightest over the palms! Annie tells us:

There were three base elements we kept in mind when we started planning: my love for strong, simple geometric shapes and clean lines, Ken’s love for plants (especially succulents and warm-weather ones), and our combined love of everything outer space-related. Our apartment in New York is chock-full of representations of all three of these things. We then worked with Mackenzie from Details, Darling to layer these ideas, as well as a warm, soft color palette, to create the various elements our guests saw throughout the evening. Our guiding principle for everything we did was that we wanted our day to feel intentional and intimate, but very casual. We wanted our guests to feel like they were at a very nice party, rather than a traditional wedding.

Evangeline Lane captured the details of the day, so let’s head on over to Palm Springs, shall we?

The Dress

Annie wore one of our absolute favorites, the Raven gown by Rue de Seine (which she found at another favorite, Lovely Bride)! Totally falling for those crotchet details!

The Florals

LOVE these bouquets by Foxtail Florals! The palms for the gals are so perfect, and we spy a dreamy arrangement of proteas, eucalyptus, and succulents there in Annie’s hands!

The Ceremony

*THAT DOOR* Naturally, A + K chose this area of the Korakia to serve as the alter! Flanked by potted plants and surrounded by friends + family (and their dog!), A + K had the dreamiest ceremony:

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

As far as a singular moment – being surprised by the amazingly hilarious and personal ceremony officiated by Ken’s best man, Adrian. It was perfect and so “us.” People laughed as much as they cried and the only scripture quoted were the lyrics of 50 Cent. All in, with my friends and family in Southern California and Ken’s in upstate NY, we loved that our wedding brought together friends and family from both coasts in a fun vacation setting.

The Cosmic Details

All the interstellar details by Seventh Bixel captured A + K’s love for all things outer space. Is that not the most beautiful moon you ever saw? (Also…the cacti and succulents are so, so perfect!)
