First off we have to admit we are in love with Mi Belle Photography! They really do have something special going on!
I am guessing that is why Chris and Allison choose Mi Belle Photography to shoot their hip Palm Springs Wedding. They tied the knot at the famous Colony Palms Hotel Palm Springs. Originally dubbed The Colonial House by reputed mobster owner Al Wertheimer, the Spanish Colonial style hotel began receiving guests in 1936 featuring plenty of sunshine, a good night’s rest, as well as a legendary underground speakeasy and brothel. Sounds like risky business to us.
Indulge in the the rest of Chris and Allison’s wedding and read on for some of their steal worthy ideas.
Allison’s adorable shoes are by Jeffrey Campbell, who I am personally a huge fan of. These particular shoes have a retro 40s flair with a little slice of a sparkling color to add a dash of drama. Known as the Quartz Platform and retail for $159.
If you are loving the bridesmaid dresses and wondering were you can snag those up for your maids they are actually BCBG. Allison added brooches to the bridesmaid dresses to complete that vintage look and feel. She actually picked them up at the Long Beach Flea market.
Another super cute wedding idea is their vintage postcard wedding menus created by PEAK a Boo Design. The postcards include guest seating on the right and the wedding menu on the left. A custom postmark was created especially for Allison and Christopher. Allison selected a vintage Palm Springs graphic for the front of the postcard. Such a fun and creative way to tie in all that is Palm Springs. You can purchase these vintage post card menus here.
