It’s a classic story with a not-so-classic ending: EmilyJane + Ramzi plus their crew of 70 “flocked over” to sunny Palm Springs from the east coast to soak up the mid-century vibes. But here’s the catch—EmilyJane + Ramzi specifically requested an “elegantly wacky” wedding day from the queen of color, Holly at Anything But Gray Events. We’ve seen classic in Palm Springs and boho in Palm Springs, but wacky in Palm Springs? Bring. It. On!
A flock of lawn flamingos, personalized details, and a colorful mid-century modern twist all came together at the Parker Palm Springs for a totally customized + nontraditional day.
Jenn Emerling was there to capture the fun in a way only she can—let’s flamingle, shall we?!
An incredibly happy invitation suite by Cecile’s Paper Co. set the stage!
Green Wedding Style!
Oh yeah, girl!
Notice anything different about their wedding looks? Here’s the scoop from EmilyJane:
It was really important for us to have a non-tradition and colorful outfits. We went with a green theme for both the custom RMINE gown and veil as well as the custom Diplomat Outfitters tuxedo. It was definitely worth the expense to get one of a kind pieces made.
Bridal Party in All the Colors
When the bride opts for green, you can bet her bridesmaids will follow in colorful suite! And those bright blooms by Shindig Chic fit in just effortlessly.
Remember this fun groomsmen look when we get to the reception design!
Amazing how flowers give off a vibe, right? This is the cheeriest bunch!
Streams of Color for a Sunny Ceremony
Speaking of absolutely cheery!
Processional: Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis
Recessional: I Feel the Earth Move by Carole King
First Dance: Skipped!
Entering the beautiful reception space and being announced as a couple to all of our friends and family for the first time. That magical feeling will never leave my heart.
The wedding made us feel like we were transported to a whole other world. From inception to design concept to the wedding day, our celebration was exactly what we wanted it to be.
Flock Together to the Reception
Anything But Gray Events added flamingos throughout the cocktail hour, signage, table decor, photobooth, displays, and cake! There were more than 150 lawn flamingos throughout cocktail hour alone!
Create the wedding of your dreams and forget all the critics.
Hire a professional and seasoned wedding planner! It makes all the difference in the world! Also, trusting the vendors to execute on our vision without micromanaging decisions was key. Our wedding vendor dream team consistently produced amazing layouts and designs when given the creative space to do so.
A super-fun flamingo photo booth by Paper Moon Shoppe rounded out the night! And what a fun one it was :) All our congrats to EmilyJane + Ramzi!
