Our Magical Desert Wedding with Pops of Color

Our wedding!

We had to share our best and most magical collaboration and the whole reason we started this blog; our wedding.

The Theme

Our wedding was full of color, symbols and meaning. Evan is stable, grounded like a tree/wood while I am fun, bright and whimsical like color. Our themes were the merging of color and wood with a little bit of Wes Anderson sprinkled throughout.

It was hard to come up with a title for the GWS feature but it ended up being: Magical Desert Wedding with Pops of Color and Personality.

When it came to my bridesmaid dresses, I was super strict on the exact color hue but not on the style. It ended up being the best collaboration with my creative and beautiful gals! Then the florals by Layered Vintage. complimented the color scheme beautifully.

The Rings

Why have one ring when you can have THREE! Evan decided that the Aquamarine engagement ring was too big to fit a wedding band, so he got me another vintage Aquamarine engagement ring and a wedding band!

I surprised Evan with another ring but it didn’t stick! He always wears this beautiful wood and ivory one.

Workshop + Whiskey handmade box

Evan handmade the boxes for each bridesmaid, groomsman and our parents.Then had their names laser printed on top. I filled the boxes for personal gifts for all the girls: robe, bracelet, earrings, sunglasses, a Starbucks card… It was SO FUN to give!

Evan designed and had these signs printed to show our guests they were on the right path.

Since I (Dana) always pin the boutonniere on grooms and groomsmen at weddings we shoot, I had to pin it on Evan.

Our designers (Crosby + Jon) and rental company (Archive Rentals) brought the most amazing colorful and eclectic chairs, which was one of my favorite things. It was perfect compliment to the wood backdrop and also the dinner tables.
