Intimate Palm Springs Wedding (with insane styling!)


“We really wanted our day to be about focusing on our marriage, rather than obsess over all the details… we knew we wanted our wedding to be a simple reflection of who we are.”

What happens when a wedding planner gets engaged to a musician and plans a magical, minimal wedding in the middle of the Californian desert? Absolute beauty happens! Britt and JD put together a simple wedding that held unforced minimalism and gentle beauty.

Britt says, “We have a love for minimalism and I love triangles, so that was the inspiration for our design. Palm Springs fit that inspiration with its mid century modern vibe and we immediately fell in love with the idea of having a weekend away with all our people. So, in May surrounded by 20 of our closest friends and family, we got married in the back yard of a magical Airbnb home.”

From the wild florals to the carefully designed table settings, the details were stunning yet casual, the kind of beauty that cannot be forced. Everything in their day was a very natural overflow of their relationship – beginning the day with making breakfast together (JD’s favourite) and hanging in the pool, with an evening filled with their ceremony and dinner. Britt says,

“We only had 18 guests, so we tried to go the extra mile to accommodate them. We created welcome bags – with somewhat of a palm springs survival kit (sunscreen, pool floaties, hot sauce etc.). We hosted a dinner when everyone arrived on Friday night, as well as a brunch the morning of the wedding. Some of our favorites moments came from those morning hours hanging in the pool with mimosas in hand. Later on It was the best feeling sitting at our big table with everyone who had truly invested a lot in who we are, together and apart. Speaking as a wedding planner, it was the most laid back, fun, and God honoring filled day. I’d do it over and over again.

Marriage is one of the most beautiful gifts – a covenant we chose to promise to each other before God. It is true beauty in the way it offers us an abundance of love, grace, joy, patience and so much more. We’ve learned that marriage is an opportunity to engage in the most intimate of relationship – offering us just a glimpse of God’s love for his people and his church.”
