The design concept for Morgan and Wilson’s wedding was crafted to honor the unique surroundings, merging the Eldorado Country Club’s iconic mid-century desert modernism with Morgan’s desire for a timeless and lush garden party.
The design focused on embracing the venue’s existing finishes, allowing the decor to accentuate and harmonize with the club’s aesthetic. By carefully layering textures and introducing understated hues, the design aimed to infuse the contemporary environment with an inviting warmth and vibrancy.
Careful spatial planning ensured that every part of the celebration offered guests a clear view of the Santa Rosa Mountains, making the stunning landscape an integral part of the event’s ambiance.
As guests arrived for the pre-ceremony, they were welcomed with champagne served under a shaded pergola. Vintage Palm Springs postcards with personal notes from the couple doubled as table assignments, giving a personalized welcome.
The ceremony was set under the protective cover of the club’s porte cochere. The ceremony design utilized the venue’s architecture to frame the natural beauty of the surrounding palm trees and water features. Rattan chairs and a large woven carpet lined the aisle and camouflaged the mixed flooring. White delphinium was selected to adorn the aisle, providing a sleek and contemporary visual that subtly echoed the radial patterns of Yucca plants and other desert vegetation. The arrangement’s singular bloom approach lent a crisp appearance, yet maintained a soft, romantic ambiance. Additionally, florals were suspended from the archway at the entrance, gently softening the architectural feature and creating an intimate frame around the couple.As a practical touch, guests received paper fans with mini programs attached to stay cool.
The dinner on the back terrace was timed perfectly with sunset, offering guests a comfortable setting to enjoy the mountain views in the soft evening light. Table settings were simple, with a focus on layered textures that stood out against the floral arrangements. The chosen flatware and wooden chairs paid homage to mid-century design.
Music from a live ensemble filled the lower terrace, set against a backdrop of carefully placed florals that softened the space and defined the performance area.
Across the terrace, a custom bar with mid-century design elements served drinks without disrupting the view. When it was time to dance, guests moved inside where the furniture and live band played off the venue’s rich woods and reflective surfaces, creating an inviting atmosphere for dancing. To end the evening, the couple made a memorable exit accompanied by a spectacle of cold spark fountains.
