    When it comes to wedding inspiration, nothing is quite so magical as seeing what real couples do for their big day. That's why 100 Layer Cake is our source for peeping the most beautiful ways brides and grooms say "I do," featuring weddings from Australia to Napa. Brides, beware: You're going to want to pin just about everything you see. And, even if you're not engaged, you'll want to check it out just to enjoy the love story.
    A '72 rusted-out Ford Bronco sits in the parking lot, and random Eames chairs around the property keep modern planters filled with cacti company. The 1952 Mojave Sands Motel was renovated in 2002, and all of its doors, windows, gates, and furniture were designed — and built — on site. 

    Each of the five rooms contains a record player and an assortment of albums for guests' listening pleasure. It was just the kind of rustic wedding site that Rachel and Travis wanted. Everything about the motel and its surrounding area lined up perfectly with their earthy aesthetic. And, when it came to the planning, they really couldn’t have picked a better team than Hello Gem! Events, which prides itself on being a one-stop wedding shop. Not only did the event-planning company coordinate the wedding, but it also acted as their florist, invitation designer, and makeup and hair team! Check out Rachel and Travis' charmingly rustic and super-cool wedding in the select shots ahead.
