Write up from Green Wedding Shoes:
As if it were from the walls of a fine art museum… only with an added bonus: desert edge! Laura of Perfectly Poised Events teamed up with photographer, Alicia Mink, to create a stunning editorial that fused the dry desert landscape with elegant + ethereal design. To do this, they chose a color palette bursting with dusty rose and pale pink hues, all rounded out by subtle hints of black. With fresh + modern elements and overflowing florals from My Sun and Stars Floral, the location of The Ruin Venue in Joshua Tree took on a whole other look than what we’re accustomed to. A ceremony for the adventurous at heart, let’s wander through the desert to take in the combination of organic elements meets refined elegance! Who else loves a good two-piece gown? Featuring a bespoke beaded top by Madeleine Fig, exclusively for Archive Bridal, and a full chiffon layered bridal skirt by Pronovias, this is how it’s DONE! All the florals for the day took on a sweeping romantic feel, while still organic and natural.
The team wanted a unique set-up that would stand out, but not compete with the beauty of the surroundings. Paired with an organic array of lush foliage, this trio of open wood frames was the perfect mix of edge and understated elegance for the sunset ceremony! We especially love the interest that is created with the three different sizes, too. The initial design for the tablescape was “flawlessly elegant with a touch of sass.” Dusty rose velvet and soft mauve linens from La Tavola Fine Linen set the tone, alongside handmade paper escort cards, blush glassware, acrylic chairs, and brass + black accents. Three gorgeous cakes sat center stage, bringing a bold and modern feel to this sweet setup. For the tablescape florals, instead of using standard garland, My Sun and Stars Floral delicately placed loose greens to achieve and ethereal and organic feeling. The main green used on the table was Smilax — which she found growing throughout the city. On top of that, she included mini arrangements sprouting from alongside the major focal points, just as flowers would appear in nature.
Not only did Jenny of Intricakes create this marvelous black masterpiece with shades of pink and metallic accents, but she also created two other complementary cakes! An array of delicate pink + white handmade sugar flowers and foliage helped to tie in the romantic tone for this gorgeous setting. There’s something so magical about the desert setting… isn’t there? Thank you so much to the talented team of creatives behind this elegant editorial!
