High Contrast Modern Parker Palm Springs Wedding
Ali and Max’s High Contrast Modern Parker Palm Springs wedding aesthetic was the perfect blend of these two unique individuals who clearly share a deep love for one another. Working with a bride who has her finger perfectly on the pulse like Ali, co-founder of the Style Lab, we knew this wedding was going to be full of impeccable details. We had a blast working with the couple to bring their surfer boy met his fashionista story to life.
Ali wanted to capture the vibe of the Parker, with its desert meets tropical oasis feel, but in an unexpected way. Rather than blowing out the spaces with vibrant color, we worked with the natural greenery of the property and added in high contrast black, white and metallic details for a fresh and glamorous aesthetic.
Of the Flowers’ gilded tropical leaf installations added major texture and drama to each event space including the ceremony, bars, head table and dessert display.
A mix of patterned black and white linens added to the high-contrast/high fashion aesthetic. Compartes chocolate bars in a variety of sleek packaging patterns were the perfect sweet favors to greet guests at their place settings.
The environment remained playful with fun, personalized touches. Eclectic cocktail hour furniture lounges were completed with Ali and Max’s fashion and surfing coffee table books to add a personal touch. Guests left their mark on Max’s very own surfboard collection at the “Pray For Surf” guest book display. The “Coconuts for You” escort card display bar was a big hit and guests were given their own coconut water to sip on the way to their seats. After dinner, a cigar roller provided cigars as a special treat.
The wedding day was a perfect blend of Ali and Max’s favorite things, styles and personalities, but above all, it was a celebration of the immense love between the two of them and their friends and families.
