I have been waiting so patiently to share Taylor and Greg’s Riviera Palm Springs wedding until it got published on Ruffled. Oh, and it was a brunch wedding, which makes it extra fun.

Details and Getting Ready

I adored Taylor’s incredible fun invitation suite. Inspired by Lilly Pulitzer and the Beverly Hills Hotel, the suite featured plenty of pink and green. The welcome boxes for guests also featured the same color palette and were filled with fruit from Taylor’s mother’s backyard, champagne, pink chocolates, and a custom Palm Springs map.

First Look

Let’s talk about how unique both first looks were on the wedding day! Unbeknownst to Greg, his first look wouldn’t be with Taylor but rather one of their Pomeranians. He loved the surprise! The second first look with Taylor brought another surprise. The couple had found out they were expecting a baby just a few months earlier. Inside the box Taylor presented Greg during the first look was a pink onesie which has to be one of the cutest gender reveal moments ever.

Bridal Party

Taylor’s bridesmaids wore tropical print dresses that were perfect for her Palm Springs brunch wedding. They each carried pink and green bouquets, a further nod to the bride’s love for Palm Springs colors.

Riviera Palm Springs Wedding Ceremony

Bamboo chairs lined the aisle for guest seating at the ceremony site leading up to the ceremony pergola. Artisan Events placed floral covered cactus plants on the pergola which was a fun touch.

Tables featured a mix of rounds with white sequin linens and long tables with pink and white striped cabana runners. Palm leaf napkins and pink and green dish sets further reinforced the tropical theme of the wedding, while the disco balls added just enough disco fever to the day.

Taylor and Greg made quite the entrance into this lively party before sitting down to hear a few toasts over brunch. After eating, they cut their insanely gorgeous pink wedding cake that sat amongst some of the cutest tropical desserts.
