From “Miss Babe to Mrs. Total Babe,” today’s bridal bachelorette brunch is the definition of DREAMY. Perfectly Poised Events + Candace Jolee Events teamed up to design this darling day to celebrate this bride-to-be in the ultimate way. From the gals sitting poolside with pink Bloody Mary cocktails, to the accompaniment of adorable feathered friends, and a customized menu of delicious goodies — this is one blissful bridal brunch we’d definitely want to attend!
Just wait until you see the location where it went down! Condors Nest Ranch is such a unique California venue, where the mountains, desert, and coast collide. Let’s check out all the festivities captured by London Light Photography!
Nikki from Made by Meer created a tropical-inspired invitation complete with palm leaves and bright colors to give a fun first impression.
The bride-to-be sign read, “Miss Babe to Mrs. Total Babe,” and it perfectly fit the overall feeling of this boozy brunch!
Rogue & Fox Floral Co. mixed a fierce combination of ranunculus, garden roses, scabies, tulips, peonies, ferns and palms to create this “LA meets Palm Springs” bouquet.
New Food Tuesdayz provided all the fruit skewers, mini waffle BLTs, and tropical monkey bread — each dish was the perfect accompaniment to the refreshing, yet spicy cocktail.
Macramama crafted all the sweet macramé swings.
How delicious does this look?! And the way those hanging florals frame the space… So cute!!

Watermelon Chili Mary Recipe
– 1 cup watermelon juice
– 2 tsp yellow tomato puree (you can easily sub 2 tsp tomato juice)
– 2 oz vodka
– 1 tsp lime juice + 1 wedge lime
– 1/2 tsp sugar
– 2-3 dashes hot sauce
– 1/8 tsp chili powder
– 1/8 tsp celery seeds
– 1/8 tsp salt
With a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, grind the celery seeds, chili powder and salt together. Pour the spice blend onto a flat plate. Rub the edge of your serving glass with the lime wedge to get it a bit sticky. Then, gently brush the rim of the glass into the spice mixture. Fill that glass with half the ice. Place the remaining ice in a shaker. Pour in the watermelon juice, tomato puree, lime juice, sugar, hot sauce and remaining spice blend. Shake well till combined and a bit frothy. Strain into the prepared glass, garnish with lime wedge and serve!
Adore Folklore deckled out the space with all the adorable umbrellas.
All those darling dresses? They’re from Cleobella!
So much fun, right?! A huge THANK YOU to the talented team behind this bridal brunch!
