If you’re dreaming of a wedding that feels kind of like a roadtrip way out west in a groovy vintage car, we’ve got something for ya!
Courtney Jean Weddings + Design teamed up with Mollie Mason Photography and Rebecca’s Garden Studio to get Canvas Creative Studios decked out desert-style. And together they dreamed up this editorial full of sandy sunset tones and of course cacti!
It’s got retro disco vibes. It’s got Desert Southwest charm. It’s got a touch of 70’s kitsch. And we are ALL about it!
Yeehaw, baby! Let’s take a look!
These bright orange invitations are by Ink House Design Co. We love the bold print envelope liner!
How much do you love those purple Betsy Johnson heels! Take a look at the Micki Pumps in Ivory if you want to stay on brand or these similar ones in purple from Anthropologie if that lilac color is what you’re after.
Desert-Inspired “I Do’s”
Rebecca’s Garden Studio outfitted the place with desert-native plants like cacti as well as with colorful fresh cut florals that add tons of color to the muted desert palette.
And don’t miss that sand-lined aisle!! Statement aisles are one of our favorite 2023 wedding trends!
This shimmery boho gown came from Evermore Bridal. We love the plunging neckline and bell sleeves! So 70’s! And how can you not adore that front-and-center slit! Take a look through our current fave boho wedding dresses if this kind of look feels like your bridal style.
Keeping the sunset-inspired vibe alive with this bright orange bouquet!
A bold pop of color like this orange jacket (or this similar satin one from ASOS) is a great way for a groom to fold some excitement into his wedding day wardrobe. Check out our rundown of wedding suit ideas if you’re still searching for your groom style.
This effortless, glowy bridal glam is the work of hairstylist Kaylee Mitchell and makeup artist Makeup by Ashley Nicole. We love the wavy bob and shimmery terracotta eye makeup.
Black jeans are a super cool way for grooms to embrace sharp-yet-casual energy. Check out this slim fit straight leg pair from Nordstrom.
Eventful Rental supplied this sweetheart table setup complete with groovy clear reception seating and then decked it out in this luxe sage-green tablecloth. Full desert glam.
Textured, woven placemats and glassware like these are an excellent way to add some earthy, boho flair to your reception tablescape.
A taper candle lover’s DREAM 😍
Yes, that is PINK FRINGE on this gorg two-tier wedding cake by Charity Fent Cake Design!! Also, we love this gold-lettered archway signage by Melissa Casey.
We are OBSESSED with this Disco Cowgirl reception look!!
Recreate the look with these yellow star-shaped sunglasses, this spangly white cowgirl hat, and this adorable white feathery mini dress.
