Romancing the Desert

A spirited couple, a private and secluded ranch, an unforgettable setting: the mise en scéne for the most romantic of occasions.  The native flora, the dry desert air and the piercing sun that cast a glorious light were the underpainting for our design story for a wedding in Palm Springs this past spring.

Taking full advantage of local resources we brought in mature trees, shrubs and citrus for added fullness and verdancy.  The ceremony tent was filled with the fragrance of orange blossoms, oleander and lavender. Unusual blooms like coral amaryllis, white agapanthus and andromeda accompanied the more classic garden roses, ranunculus and sweet peas for an unexpected combination.  The colors were straight out of the California sunset.

What a treat to work in such a marvelous place.  We hope to return soon.
