Inspired by the sun-bleached colors and palette of the desert, Briana, a Hollywood costume designer, used her artistic eye to design her + her hubby Jason’s gorgeously unique Palm Springs wedding. Working with the talented gals at Hello Gem!, the styling of the setting really reflected the couple’s midwestern roots, Briana’s upbringing on her family farm, and their love of 20’s fashion and all things art deco. The Ace Hotel provided a perfect backdrop, Hello Gem! created the dreamiest desert-inpsired florals, and Bri’s gorge Jenny Packham dress is sure to have us looking like a heart-eyed emoticon for the rest of the day! But we’re cool with that! Big thanks to Modern Obscura for the lovely photos — let’s check them out!
Nail envy! Right ladies?
Jason’s 70’s sparkly blue van was the backdrop for the first look and brought a bit of fun and whimsy to the day. Love it!
We adore Briana’s vintage art deco hair piece. So beautiful!
Briana’s great feather bracelet is another vintage find. Leave it to the costume designer to find the most perfect + unique pieces for her wedding ensemble, right?!

Don't sweat the small stuff. My brother forgot his dress shoes the day of the wedding so my grandmother and him walked down the aisle barefoot. Everyone thought it was planned! :)
