Old Hollywood + Desert Vibes Inspired this Bespoke Palm Springs Wedding

Old Hollywood Desert Wedding

Nothing gets us excited like the words Palm Springs and Old Hollywood wedding! How could it NOT be a dreamy day, right? Sheena and Matt married at Colony 29 and came to the table with a totally defined vision: Old Hollywood-meets-neon-nights! The bride wore a custom wedding dress and lent her own design talents to several details throughout the day:

I had a million ideas from the beginning that Aubrey from Details, Darling and Angelena from Shindig Chic were so patient to work with me on. I knew I wanted the night to feel glamorous but still fun and a bit irreverent. Coming from a design background, I also knew I wanted to design as many components from the wedding as possible and luckily, was able to partner creatively with such talented teams to make it into reality! From the signage to the paper goods to the wedding koozies to the neon sign…it was a true labor of love that all turned out perfectly!

We’ve got a look at all those dreamy details with photos by Logan Cole Photography! Old Hollywood, here we come:

How about that dress?!

I knew I wanted something custom with lots of texture and detail, and that had the right balance of tradition and interesting elements. My good friend, Sarah Varca, happens to be an incredible bespoke bridal designer with an atelier in Chicago (Varca Bridal) so we partnered together to create the final dress. She ended up creating the most stunning dress I couldn’t have even dreamt of in the beginning: layers of lace and pearls, leather trim, and a deep V to end all deep Vs.

Long wood tables with mismatched gold + black bentwood chairs from Adore Folklore, mauve velvet runners, black + gold mid-century glassware, hanging lanterns and an explosion of tropical plants lining the dining tables set the mood for a perfect party.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

In the last two weeks before the wedding, I felt like I was hemorrhaging money. After a while, I just told myself to lean into it and honestly, I don’t regret any of it!!
