Romantic florals in an array of attractive tones, composed in miles of a Navajo white landscape dusted in sand, painted a beautiful embodiment of sophistication mixed with contemporary elements that made saying farewell to 2018 quite tranquil. Hidden in the dunes known as Glamis, California showcased why romantic love in the desert was as enchanting as the stories of old have captivated us. 

The vision always began with the bride clothed in long flared wedding dress with a natural waistline that could showcase Gibson Bespoke’s luxurious crystal embroidery cape, flawless in subtle winds. The corded buttoning detailing added a hint of Vintage design from Casa Blanca to an otherwise contemporary look, paired with loose hair in soft romantic twists, and natural makeup on behalf of Beauty Bespoken. 

An organic bouquet of rich blooms and greenery from Leafittolexi tied with silk ribbons in matching hues completed her look. Whilst the groom looks dapper in a traditional black suit that anchored well with the tones of the sand.

The inviting sweetheart table pairs wood with mixed metals and contemporary gold chairs to create an inviting space to continue the celebrations from Adore Folklore Rentals. Wanting to highlight the affinity for florals, and complement rather than contend with the natural beauty of the environment, flowers in soft shades of blush and ivory where selected. A lot of inspiration was drawn from the organic scenery. Lo Zukowski Calligraphy wanted to capture an invitation suite that was both romantic and lux, but with a minimal, organic aesthetic.

Before the celebration concluded with the most delicious looking three-tiered cake from Peggy Liao, adorned with beautiful metallic hues and transparent sugar leaves.
