We are really excited to be featured today on Wedding Chicks for Amy & Ethan’s absolutely fabulous retro Palm Springs wedding that took place Oct. 1st! Big thanks to Stephanie Ann Photography for capturing the true essence of the day and all of their special details. Talk about a seriously fun and laid back couple! We worked with Amy for over a year while she diligently planned every last detail of their wedding. She truly did not leave one detail un-designed. Being a graphic artist really helps when it comes to designing and creating all the paper goods for your wedding. Amy did the invitations herself; all the special frames, place cards, dessert table etc – she thought of everything! There were many a late night with the paper cutter, but she really saved on those printing costs! The ceremony took place at the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, a Historical home in Palm Springs where Elvis and Priscilla Presley spent the first year they were married. The reception followed at The Movie Colony Hotel, one of our favorite retro Palm Springs getaway spots. Sugar Branch Events did all of the flowers and coordination and had an absolute blast! Our favorite moment was their first look! Stephanie captured their personalities so perfectly with those pictures – it was just so ‘them’ and so special. Jennifer’s Fine Foods and Catering provided SUPER delicious food! Phil Shane was the singing cover master as he got everyone up on their feet dancing the whole night to some great rock tunes! He even changed into an Elvis tribute sparkly jacket half-way through the evening which was awesome. Dough-a-Deer made all the late-night mini donut wedding favors (packaging designed by Amy of course!) which were a big hit. The evening concluded with a fun sparkler send-off as the newlyweds drove away in their Mini Cooper! Thank you Amy + Ethan for including us in your special day, it was such a pleasure to be a part of it all! Congratulations!
