Behind the Green Door - Intimate Palm Springs Wedding Inspiration

This shoot was sparked by a desire to show that the traditional format of a "wedding" is something that can be turned on its head and still feel beautiful and elegant. Behind the Green door is a private, insider's secret in Palm Springs and is a dreamy oasis in the desert that sets the stage for the PERFECT wedding weekend.

Can you imagine a full wedding weekend at Ininn with every room occupied by a loved one? Stay a few nights, spend your days with everyone by the pool, and spend your nights celebrating the start to a new chapter in your life. I love the idea of a two night adventure in this little private escape. As a stylist, I find a lot of inspiration in the spaces in which I work. Having the opportunity to shoot at Ininn for this really created the entire jumping point for the rest of the story and style behind the look.

Rather that creating an all-out "reception" we set a dreamy table for our bride and groom while creating lounge areas for the rest of the guests. I imagine a casual menu meant to be grazed on instead of the standard plated fare. This space is so perfect for creating community and I wanted every part of the day to exude that family feel. Almost like a summer camp where people arrive as friends and leave with a lifelong bond.

We had such a blast creating this shoot. Our team road tripped to Palm Springs from Phoenix and spent the day marveling at all of the thoughtful design details incorporated throughout the venue. I honestly think the best part of the shoot was the incredible time we had creating it. It's so fun getting to watch your idea come to life and it's something I never get tired of.
