A Modern Wedding at The Viceroy, Palm Springs: Melaina & Tim

September 18, 2012

I think I say this every time I feature a Palm Springs wedding but oh boy is this place on my holiday wish list… I’m also now pretty set on staying at The Viceroy after seeing this wedding. In fact I couldn’t think of a more perfect venue for a modern wedding with black, grey and yellow accents.

“We wanted an intimate destination wedding for around 50 of our friends and family in Palm Springs and the Viceroy had the perfect feel”, began Melaina, the bride. “Not to mention that our colors yellow, grey and black were in the decor already. An outdoor wedding was important to us and we didn’t want something stuffy or too traditional. The reading we chose for our ceremony was, The Owl and the Pussycat, and as our recessional music we walked out to ‘Oh Yeah’ by Yello which is from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

Artisan Events helped co-ordinate the wedding as well as styling the reception space and providing the flowers but the couple took charge of all the paper goods. “We made our own wedding program fans in our wedding colors to have on each guest’s seat”, Melaina continued. “Because of the warm weather I thought a fan would be cute and practical. We had the program designed by Flair Designery and had them printed by Spot-On Print & Design. Tim and I rounded all the corners of the programs and used double sided tape to add the wavy wooden fan handles that we purchased on etsy and ties on yellow bows.”

Utterly gorgeous! Thank you to Melaina & Tim, wedding photographer Heather Kincaid & planner Liz of Artisan Events for sharing this wedding with us today.
