Desert-Meets-Glam Wedding: Kendrick + Aron

desert glam wedding

Sometimes you just need a little sparkle + glitz in your life, right? We think so! And Kendrick + Aron’s desert-meets-Old-Hollywood-glam is exactly what we needed to get this week started off on the right foot! When we heard that Jesi Haack, Amber of The Love Riot and Carissa of JL Designs were all involved, we definitely knew this would be one gorge celebration. And all of their incredible talents shined through in every last, little sparkly facet. We love the contrast of super bright blooms + neutral  sequin table linens, lush green garlands overhead, rustic wood elements to warm up the space, and a little sprinkling over art-deco glam seen throughout. We gotta say, we’re so glad that ART IS FOR LOVERS was there to beautifully capture the whole thing so we could share it right here with you all!

From the bride, The overall theme was elegant and glamorous with a rustic Italian feel—think lots of fresh greenery draped on tables and hanging from the ceiling of the tent. The tables were all covered in sequin table clothes with gold flatware and plates. The chairs were rustic wood farm style. We laid down white plush carpet throughout the tent to make it feel super elegant! There were two large chandeliers that hung from the ceiling of the tent along with fresh greenery cascading down the tent’s wall to give it an extra pop and help make the space feel fresh.

Those olive branch table numbers are oh-so creative + we’re digging the pops of crisp white throughout the tablescapes! Such a great way to balance the setting and add in a few modern touches.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Enjoy the planning phase—don’t let stress ruin the fun! Also, know that there will be hiccups on the day of the event. Do not freak out though….everything works out and guests will never notice if something isn’t exactly as you had planned it.

And I highly recommend hiring a good planner/design team. It’s worth every dime if you can find room in your budget. It will allow you to delegate all the busy work, so you can just make the fun decisions---like picking colors, flowers, food, etc.! Plus, your fiancé will appreciate a “less stressed wife-to-be”!!!
