Inspired by the idea of “let’s make this day last,” Matt and Saundra opted for a unique approach to their wedding, which they held at a Palm Springs AirBnb. Complete with a family-style brunch after their early morning ceremony and a pool party reception, this vintage Hawaiian style wedding allowed Matt and Saundra to experience an “all-day” soiree with 35 of their closest family and friends.
The picture-perfect florals for the ceremony backdrop and table settings were created by Studio Palma, who couldn’t leave out the couples’ dog, Kailani, who sported a full lei made of palms and orchids. Brunch was prepared by none other than the bride’s mother, giving the guests an intimate, family experience. To beat the heat in true Palm Springs fashion, Saundra and Matt utilized their venues backyard and pool to create a fun, “one last summer party” vibe for their guests, featuring a competitive, mash-up game of flip cup and Slip N Slide. After my professional duties were fulfilled, I decided to combat the 115-degree weather and take a ride down the Slip N Slide myself!
