Hillary & Michelle both have busy lives working for two major fashion retailers. Finding a peaceful retreat in their Palm Springs home was so easy to do, especially when the home is a picture perfect mid century modern desert hideaway. When planning their Palm Springs wedding, they envisioned both their families celebrating with them as their place is really a dream home, and is such a personal space.
I loved that everyone wore white – and the sun behind them just illuminated all the beautiful landscape
You see a glimpse of that bouquet she’s holding right? Wait till you see what else Vaso Bello did! Pure artistry!
I am sooo glad I shot a mix of film on this as the colors that day were so vibrant wherever we went. Michelle asked for black and white, and you know me, if I print it myself, I will most definitely shoot black and white film!
And now for the sweet details. The floral decorations were so gorgeous and literally good enough to eat – loved the pomegranates!
The catering was done by the very awesome Chef Stephen Lee. Whom, along being a sustainable chef and urban farmer, was also the finalist in MasterChef, season 6. (I have to snap myself out of watching him cook everytime we work together for reals)
After some toasts and after getting hitched hugs from everyone, I got the brides in my car, and we headed towards the desert sunset.
We talked at at some length while planning their Palm Springs wedding and they both wanted something that captured them in a place they cherished calling home. We thought about those picturesque Palm Springs streets with towering palm trees over the iconic mid century architecture, and wide open desert and desert rose skies.
What a perfect sunset right? After all that serious picture taking, we loosened things up and literally ran all over the place
