Palm Springs is one of my absolute favorite places on the planet to photograph a wedding. A mini city in the middle of the dessert, it is just the visual aesthetic that I love, mid-century modern everything...does it get any better than that?! I also love the kinds of weddings that happen here....the kind where stylish simplicity meets glamour. The perfect blend of intimacy and a real party...not too big, not to small. Eliza & Justin's gorgeous bash was no exception. After getting ready at The Parker the ceremony and reception were held at Villa Carmelita, famous for being the lovenest of Sonny & Cher. And I got to work with a truly incredible team: Wedding Coordinator: Celebrations of Joy Catering: Jennifer's Fine Foods Rentals: Signature Party Rentals Makeup: Ten Eleven Makeup

You might remember Jay and Mike from their really fun 500 Days of Summer inspired engagement session a few months back. Their wedding took place at The Parker Palm Springs, one of my all time favorite wedding venues...on New Year's Eve. With a color palette of black & white with splashes of red, white lanterns illuminating the after-dark ceremony, photo booth and New Years hats and crowns, it was a glamourous but laid-back and really fun atmosphere. Coordinator: Celebrations of Joy Flowers: Arrangements Design Gown: Vera Wang Jay & Mike had their good friend John officiate their wedding so I had to grab this tongue-in-cheek portrait of him showing off his clergy certificate after being ordained online. Jay accented her super sexy Vera Wang gown with a black sash. Stunning! They always have random fruit laying around at The Parker so we decided to do a tribute to "The Real Housewives".
