Sands Hotel & Spa Wedding Editorial in Palm Springs
Do you want to know what my wedding dreams are made of? Actually scrap that. Do you want to know where I'd love to live forever? This place. This STUNNING pink palace. The Sands Hotel & Spa in the Palm Springs area is the absolute perfect wedding venue AND vacation getaway for anyone that loves thoughtful decor, chill desert vibes, and insanely delicious drinks. To be honest, that description doesn't even scratch the surface of this magical desert gem; so you really just have to go. Like now. Pack your bags and head there asap. I'll meet you in the Pink Cabana.
When Jason Lloyd and I started dreaming up this wedding editorial, we had no idea how perfect it would actually become. I feel a lot of that is due to our amazing couple Alexandra & Madison, who actually eloped over a year ago in ripped jeans and t-shirts. They took this opportunity to celebrate their love by booking a few extra nights at the resort and bringing their sweet pup Madex along for the adventure. Jason Lloyd created an absolute dream wedding for them, along with the gorgeous florals by Lily of Salt Road. Scroll down to see all the gorgeousness!
La Quinta Resort & Club Wedding in Palm Springs: Kayleen & Scott
Give me all the desert weddings please! I was so excited when Kayleen & Scott reached out to me to photograph their destination wedding at La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Desert. The resort is their happy place, and where they often vacationed together. And, it just happens to be where Scott proposed to Kayleen!
Ace Hotel Palm Springs Wedding: Sarah & George
A wedding at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs? Yes, please. This place has been very high up on my list of places I've been dying to photograph at, so I was pretty excited when Sarah & George reached out to me to photograph their wedding here! Their day was filled with tons of fun AND cute puppies. Seriously, this wedding is an overload of cute puppy pics; and I'm not mad about it. Scroll down to check it out!
Alcazar Palm Springs Wedding: Cara & Dan
Want to know how to make a wedding photographer extremely happy? Plan a crazy fun wedding at a unique venue and hire a bunch of incredible vendors to help create the most amazing atmosphere. Cara & Dan did just that, and their wedding at the Alcazar Palm Springs was definitely one of my favorites of 2017! Their poolside wedding felt like a vacation. Seriously, I felt like I walked into a pool party while on a tropical getaway. They served coconuts to drink, had a delicious donut bar, and even jumped into the pool at the end of the night... wedding attire and all! I absolutely LOVED their floral design (I'm lowkey obsessed with monstera deliciosa.. it's all over my apartment!); and the pops of green, pink, and coral made their day feel like a breath of fresh air. Ready to get away?! Relive some of my favorite moments and details of their day below!
Colony 29 Wedding: Bryanna & Dane
This wedding is straight magic. Seriously. I'm already pretty obsessed with Palm Springs weddings, because, let's face it, Palm Springs is where you go to party and get away from LA... How can you NOT have an amazing wedding experience there?! But this wedding was something else completely. This wedding was vibrant, colorful, and... RAINY. When I talk about a wedding being magical, I'm definitely talking about well timed rain. Southern California definitely needs rain whenever it can get it, but on your wedding day?! And in Palm Springs??? That just doesn't happen. For better or worse, it rained on and off throughout Dane & Bryanna's wedding day, but these two just simply did not care. They were getting married, and that's all the really mattered. It was perfect. The colors at Colony 29 were even more vibrant. The rain held off for their outdoor ceremony, and their desert backdrop looked surprisingly lush. The rain brought a mood to the photographs and made their desert wedding so unique. Here's some of my favorite moments and details from this rainy wedding day!
