Christopher and Megan knew a few things going into wedding planning: they’d design it all themselves, the wedding would take place outside, and the bride would not wear white! And so it was. They were married at The O’Donnell House in Palm Springs, in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony surrounded by family and friends, many of whom had lent a hand in the details of the day.
The couple fell in love in the desert and wanted to bring all of their favorite people to Palm Springs. When looking for venues, being outside was the number one priority. The rest was just blending the desert aesthetic with their style. The couple did as many DIY projects as they could without making themselves crazy and designed the whole event themselves.
The bridal look was created with a custom gold silk lamé bustier with an asymmetrical sequin drape, a detachable silk tulle train and a sequin wide-legged pant by Halpern. One leg is printed sequins and the other leg is brushed metallic sequins.
When in doubt, call on friends! Christopher and Megan’s friends and family not only made the celebration fun, but they also helped make it happen! They made the bridal outfit, did the makeup, designed earrings and brooches for the friends to wear, helped to tie-dye all of the napkins by hand, made the seating chart, made the photo booth props and brought them to the wedding, made and painted all of the table numbers! Such a fun hand-dipped painted escort chart by friends at Pop Up Greens! Love how it has a cool desert-inspired feel with the colors and texture.
