Desert Wedding

” Meet me in the Desert “

Our friends Ali and David asked us to join them in celebrating their wedding.

Ali and her family have been tight with our family and the sense of community that Tower Lakes has is exceptionally rare. When you feel this kind of tightness you know you’ve got a friend wherever you go.

Where: La Quinta: 95 degrees, at the base of the mountain range


  • Ali says “I do” before the vows
  • Live acoustic music
  • The Father of the Bride who orchestrated “You’ve got a Friend” so that by the end all of the guests were singing along. I’ve never seen anything like it.
  • Ali’s smile
  • David’s enthusiasm and pride in this ten year journey to marriage

Styling Me:

The heat calls for a dress that will allow max ventilation. I am playing with textures and drape here by pairing a light airy dress with a bold heel. This tulip wrap is so fun and flirty with the cold shoulder and allows the heels to really shine.


Dress: Reformation, Shoes: Stuart Weitzman

Keeping cool: I went to the Ceremony with wet hair to keep cool and let the desert rays dry my hair naturally.

Styling Tip: Burgundy is an excellent accent color. In this outfit I am pairing the same shade with this heel to bring in a deep, bold color that works to compliment the Strawberry dress.

This works for every pastel and will be a major influence in my styling for Fall.

Styling Jamie:

Grey and blue make the perfect partnership in this suit. I love the way the buttons create a modern, unique look.

Jamie has had this tie since I met him three and a half years ago. It’s tired but meaningful and happened to bring our looks together. His jacket is half lined specifically for warm weather and his suit is light weight fabric, exceptional for 365 d/year.


Suit: Loro Piana – Knot Standard
