weekly wrap up + a palm springs wedding shoot

by Stephanie

Whether you’re engaged, married or happily enjoying single life, I think weddings can be a fantastic source of entertaining ideas. No rings are required to enjoy a great table design or beautiful food displays, so I love getting to share wedding shoots when they’ve got color schemes and decor that could span a wide range of events. This wedding shoot was created by Jesi Haack Design and shot at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, California. I love the vivid pinks and yellows- they scream “summer” to me and would perfect to carry through for a backyard BBQ or even a baby shower. Chiavari chairs are such a party staple, but they feel fun and surprisingly modern doused in a coat of hot pink paint.

My favorite part of the event design is contrast between electric colors and faded tumbleweeds- it makes all the decorations really stand out from the surroundings. If you’re looking for a fun idea for a birthday party, summer backyard bash or just a little get together for two, there are plenty of ideas to inspire here. Thanks to Melanie for sending this over. A full list of credits is after the jump (with more gorgeous photos) and all of the pictures above and below were taken by Gabriel Ryan Photographers.

I’m heading off for the weekend and will see you on Monday, reporting part of the week from San Francisco and the other part from gorgeous Portland, Oregon. I can’t wait to get a break from this crazy NYC heat. See you next week! xo, grace
