A few months ago we were invited by The Wedding Artists Collective (a talented crew of photographers) to organize a venue tour in Palm Springs, California.  Any place with over 350 days of sunshine, endless blue skies and a mecca of Mid-Century Modern homes is our kinda place. Hollywood’s playground never gets old. Hillary Angel from Visit Palm Springs was our tour operator and planner extraordinaire.

The Venue Tour
Our cool caftan clad adventure and venue tour in Palm Springs had to begin with a custom map we collaborated on with Mae Mae Paperie who designed it to perfection. The tour included a historic mid-century modern hideaway, a contemporary estate, a Spanish Revival artist colony and a late night pool party bar ideal for casual gatherings. We have a slight obsession with caftans (there is not anything much more comfortable for cocktails and appetizers), so the dress code was …

Last week we headed out to the desert of Palm Springs for some venues, fun and sun.  Hollywood’s playground never gets old. Where else can you frolic where legendary celebs like Frank Sinatra & Marilyn Monroe have also frolicked in a bygone era?! Following are some of our Instagram sneaks and field notes about our caftan clad adventure. Yep, we have a caftan obsession (there truly is nothing more comfortable to wear while eating and drinking). We also love cocktails (duh) and because each venue had a pool we threw our love for cannonballs into the mix. Thus our theme Cocktails, Caftans & Cannonballs was born. The full feature and venue details coming soon, but following are some peeks to wet your venue loving whistle. Tweet tweet!

It’s oh-so-happily harvest season party animals! Light the fires and kick the tires, we’re finding the nearest leaf pile to play in! If fall is the “time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale,” then we should surely celebrate this colorful crescendo.
