Amanda & Cody ♥ Palm Springs, USA
Photographer: onelove photography
I had the pleasure of visiting Palm Springs many moons ago whilst on a fashion shoot with work and I have longed to go back ever since.
There was something charming and almost magical about this desert city, especially to a London dweller; the lovely long roads lined with leggy palm trees, the mountain ranges standing tall in the distance, the delightfully hot weather (of course!) and the vintage Americana feel.
Amanda and Cody chose the darling Palm Springs desert and the trendy Ace Hotel and Swim Club for their sunshiny soiree, and the brilliant onelove photography team were there to capture the day in perfect style, as always.
When you choose a standout venue like Ace Hotel, working a little of the design aesthetic into your wedding will create a consistent and memorable theme. With a luxe vintage feel to the Ace, today’s couple went for a 1920s-inspired image with wow-factor features such as bright summery blooms, glittering chevron table runners, and even a taco buffet complete with Tabasco favours (super hot idea!).
If you’re getting married abroad then today’s Ace Hotel, Palm Springs wedding is true inspiration for having your day your way, and showcases the amazing outcome of adding pops of personality to your celebration.
Amanda the bride:
“I highly recommend the first look. We got married at sunset so we had to do the first look. At first I was concerned it would take away from the ceremony, but it was amazing! It actually added another ‘experience’ for the day that was exciting, romantic and personal. When I walked down the aisle it was a completely different feeling and moment, and now I had two of those moments!”
“We had an ‘I love you to the moon’ wedding theme. I incorporated a 192os modern feel to match the atmosphere of the Ace. We had gold and white chevron runner’s, bright flowers with gold accents and vintage 1920s framed sheet music. For escort table we used marquee letters and chalkboard signs. I used paper flowers for our archway to save money and they matched perfect! We bought tons of cafe lights to fill the room with soft light.”
“We had the hashtag ‘debacker magic’ because we wanted a magical wedding. AND because all the men in the family say they have the DeBacker magic. ”
