Mindy + Jeb’s classic wedding took place in one of our favorite California locations: the stunning La Quinta landscape near Palm Springs. We had the opportunity to work with this couple for over a year, bringing their vision to life. Living in Seattle but with both families in La Quinta, the wedding needed to exude a classic California casual vibe. Punchy citrus colors and bold anemones, along with soft ivories and blushes to kept with the classic theme. Collaborating closely with Smitten on Paper, the invitation suite beautifully mimicked their florals, with elaborate stacked invitations for the weekend events.
To further personalize the wedding weekend, Mindy + Jeb provided guests with customized welcome baskets. They incorporated Washington wine and Starbucks coffee along with the couple’s favorite mints from Trader Joe’s (where Jeb works). A Spanish tile commemorated La Quinta and a sweet note describing the significance of each item was placed on top of other small amenities.
The wedding day could not have been more perfect. It was such an honor to get close to Mindy + Jeb’s family over the planning process and we were just as excited for the party ahead. They said “I do” inside of a soft semi-circle of blooms by the talented Luna of Arrangements Floral and Party Design adorned with kumquats and bright garden roses. Photos of the couple were taken at Tradition Golf Course between rows of palms and in rugged hillside. The groom’s two daughters opened up the wedding reception with a heartfelt prayer leaving tears in all the guests’ eyes. Then the party was officially started by the rocking band, Gold Standard of Downbeat LA. The wedding party sipped on Washington wines and dined on California cuisine under canopies of twinkling lights and the upbeat performances by singers and guests alike.
It was such a magical culmination to the planning process and we wish Mindy + Jeb nothing but the happiest of wishes!
