A Romantic Mid-Century-Style Wedding at The Frederick Loewe Estate in Palm Springs, California
Audrey Wayne and Max Riccio love the "mid-century charm" of Palm Springs, so they got married at The Frederick Loewe Estate. "The view, the architecture, the thoughtful design of the venue—it’s modern but classic at the same time, which really reminds me of the timeless love Max and I share," Audrey says. "Every planning and design decision was thoughtfully made so that our wedding could stand the test of time. We didn’t want anything too trendy or too indicative of the present day." Cheery hues first showed up in the invitation suite and also appeared in flower arrangements throughout the venue. The outdoor ceremony took place in front of an archway decorated with hanging blooms. "The dripping florals from our archway were so ethereal and were especially beautiful when they fluttered in the breeze," Audrey says. Modern lounge furniture and bright-colored seating charts welcomed guests to the reception. "Our sherbet color palette and furniture choices created a bold contrast against the earth-tone picturesque backdrop, and allowed us to make a big statement with less," Audrey says. "I tend to lean toward soft design elements, so I fell in love with the curves of the white bentwood chairs, the pink velvet accent chairs and creamsicle-colored accents." The dining tables also featured whimsical flower centerpieces, simple menus and an assortment of vintage water glasses.
Our favorite #MakeTradition moment: Audrey had a "something old" and "something borrowed" (a vintage diamond bracelet that belongs to her grandmother), a "something new" (diamond drop earrings) and a "something blue" (satin shoes).
