What Makes A Bride Feel Like A Bride? Her Bouquet.

All brides’ bouquets are very important to the way they feel on their wedding day, but none so much as the women we meet who are here in Palm Springs to elope or have tiny family weddings.  The bouquet is central in making that bride feel no less important than Kate Middleton taking her vows in front of the entire world.  This inspiration board we’re sharing is from an elopement at The Lucy House here in Palm Springs. The bride, in an adorable cocktail style dress, was definitely in love with her bouquet. Oh yeah – and the groom too.  Enjoy.  Photography by Debi Parker.


Meanwhile, back at the (Smoke Tree) Ranch…

The day was bright and clear and the whole affair was more beautiful than you can imagine.  But I don’t want to overburden you with all that imagining, so hang tight and we’ll get some of the photographer’s shots up on the blog as soon as we can.  While running around getting all our details in place, someone was reminded of the scene in one of the Muppet movies – I think it was “The Muppets Take Manhattan” which begins with the Muppets frantically pulling together the last minute touches for a wedding: Kermit and Miss Piggy’s.  There’s something about being part of the community that creates the magic of weddings that is a very special privilege.  It’s crazy and hectic, but also there are times when everyone’s working together and it’s all humming along and it wouldn’t seem out of place for everyone to break out into song like the Muppets do.  Enjoy the photo of Saturday’s beautiful decor, and this clip of “Somebody’s Getting Married Today.”
