Retro meets colourful neon geometrics for a stylish Californian Wedding at Colony 29

Today I am excited to share this amazing Californian Wedding where retro meets colourful neon geometrics at Colony 29.

Images were captured by Sposto Photography.

Clay and Michael met on OKCupid after months of bad dates and nearly giving up on online dating, but their first date at a Brooklyn bar proved that good things are worth waiting for.

After enduring a long distance relationship, Clay proposed during a trip to Rome together.

Their incredible big day didn’t happen however for another 2 years due to them wanting to secure their venue, Colony 29.

Colony 29 is a Palm Springs wedding venue and boutique hotel, offering panoramic valley views eastern to the Chocolate Mountains and south to the Santa Rosa Mountain Range.

The ceremony was one of the most important parts of their Californian Wedding with it allowing them to reflect on the past, present and future, and reminding them of the importance of change and time acknowledging the adversity that the LGBTQ community had faced.

The decor of the day was bright neon and 60’s inspired with a staggered cake from Over The Rainbow Desserts and bold signage from Woodland Manufacturing, and details that embraced the playful nature of the space,

The look of the Palm Springs venue inspired the mid century reception decor from Eames chairs to potted succulents, pin cushion proteas, peonies, and cacti from Florist My Little Flower Shop.

Guests found their seats with the help of colourful diamond shaped cards which flowed through from the stationery from Maude Press, and went beautifully alongside the aqua menus, also in a diamond shape.

Mike went classic in his wedding attire with a navy tux, whilst Clay chose a lighter shade of blue..

Guest cooled off with rose wine or three signature drinks, an old fashioned Manhattan, spicy cucumber lemonade or a Colony 29, named after the venue which consisted of vodka, passion fruit or soda.

To bring the party to life the couple danced to an upbeat playlist before Clay serenaded Mike with “Come Rain or Come” shine by Chet Baker
