Our gold-geared hearts fell in love with this desert wedding inspiration. Simple, chic, details paired with sequins = a masterpiece in the making. The bride transitioned from a veil, to a headpiece, to a flower crown – all equally stunning and her maid looked nothing of the sort in a head-to-toe glittered gown and jeweled crown. These deserted ladies sure don’t look like they have been wandering the desert for long (have you seen their flawless glam makeup?!). Instead, the shoot is supremely elegant against the natural, somewhat empty landscape. The solitary wood table is simply adorned with candlesticks and pretty navy and gold dishes. This color scheme continues into the hand-lettered stationery by the photographer himself while the pastel bouquets add a soft and feminine flair – we wish we could have these flowers always! Mike Thezier captured the beauty and shares his inspiration and fabulous team of vendors here:
For this shoot, we wanted to create an elegant and intimate scene in the desert with golds, whites, blacks, and pastels. This location near Palm Springs was so perfect because it has a beautiful juxtaposition of desert and mountain top with the San Jacinto Mountains in the background. It was an honor to work with a great group of creatives to make this shoot happen. Margie Kay of Little Flower Floral Design did a fantastic job with the bouquets, crown, and table arrangements and the makeup and hair, done by Chelsea Nicole Makeup & Hair, was so fitting. Styling was a collaborative effort between myself and two close friends, Emily and Austin Pine.
