Ever since we shared the news of a girlfriend getaway to Palm Springs, we’ve had nothing but palm trees and warm nights on our minds, so what better way to wind down the week than with an absolutely gorgeous desert wedding captured by Jen of Fondly Forever. The bride, Taylor, cites travel as one of their main sources of inspiration for the day, sharing, We have done a lot of traveling together and wanted to incorporate elements from our favorite destinations thus the bali lanterns, offering boxes, orchids, ikat pillows and boho inspired dresses.
We love all of the ways Bustle Events helped Taylor + Kevin bring their fun vision to life in the backyard of a hacienda at La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, California. The end result was a balmy al fresco celebration that felt like a big dinner party – aka T + K’s total dream wedding!

Floral dresses are always a good idea! In fact, the GWS team has been working away on a gorgeous collection of floral bridesmaid dresses ourselves! Details to come soon, but in the meantime, shop this breezy look now by browsing our floral dress guide below:
Walking down the aisle towards my husband to be with Ziggy Marley playing, saying our vows and dancing with our friends under the desert sky.
Seriously, Taylor’s bouquet + her Jenny Packham dress are a match made in heaven!
Taylor says, We chose the wedding date because it was my grandma’s birthday and in lieu of traditional wedding dessert, we instead got everyone to serenade her with a birthday song and brought out her very own cake to celebrate her 93rd year and extraordinary presence in our life.
Take a moment to step back through the day and take mental pictures. It all flies by but I am so happy I took moments to myself to really take it all in.
