These lovely photos by Christina Frary at Matthew David Studios capture some moments at this bright, romantic Palm Springs wedding. We love the loose, wild yet feminine bouquet. Enjoy!
This past weekend the world lost iconic fashion designer Oscar De La Renta. The accolades and remembrances continue to roll in from fashion journalists and celebrities, and all share a common view of what made him a genius. His talent was in making sure the woman was the focus, not the dress.
How does that apply to weddings? Well simply put, as you plan make sure you’re the stars of the show: you and that wonderful person you’re marrying. Your ideas for details and décor are wonderful, but make sure that the look you and your florist create doesn’t overwhelm the most special, unique feature of the event – that’s your love and happiness! Like De La Renta’s beautiful gowns, the design should beautifully flatter, but not overtake you. After all, you’re what everyone’s come to see. Not the ice sculpture.
Live well and love well.
A tweet caught my eye today – admiring someone’s “Day After Wedding Shoot.” Is this a thing? Disturbing, if you ask me. The wedding industry puts a lot of pressure on couples. The “musts” have expanded through the years. We’ve hit a point where what’s expected has ballooned- and at a time when people’s ability to finance these more and more extravagant add-ons is more and more tenuous. This last one just put me over the edge a little. What do you think?
