We carefully cut and tore watercolor paper for an artistic texture. Paige then took the paint hues of the Poppy flower and the desert sunset and watercolored them right on the paper, creating each one with various shades. There were no two alike. Kelly designed the ethereal, yet strong font text and antler image which we gocco’d with brown ink onto the watercolor. Affordable, easy and gorgeous. For the placecards, we took a vintage bone and antler photograph and printed the names and table numbers directly onto a copy of the photograph. This can easily be handwritten or calligraphed as well.

Kelly used her signature succulents to turn the copper pitcher into a poised vessel of plant love. The modernity of the succulents also represents the timeless terrain of the desert valley. She also pulled in the pops of color that Georgia loved to use in her paintings with springtime poppies. The poppies made for a happy, dainty bouquet mixed with fever few and tied with cotton rope for an earthy texture. Other desert inspired florals like thistle and tallow berry were sprinkled throughout the table.

These ideas were truly a creative process of the senses for Kelly, Paige and Charley. It was a day of quiet humming in the desert canyon, meandering among the goats and chickens and channeling our inner artist on the geographic plains of Quail Springs community. We can’t wait to plan a real wedding in this location. We hope we inspired you to take inspiration from your favorite people and turn that vision into a tangible wedding design of any kind.

this desert-inspired design takes the cake. i adore the use of bones and drift wood. too often we mask or stray away from the natural environment and i love that this event design was inspired by the location. great work ladies!
