Kelly + Chris {Palm Springs Wedding}

Over this past weekend, Courtney and I had the opportunity to photograph a very cool wedding at a private residence with a swanky hotel reception. Kelly and Chris (the yellow ballon engagement session in an earlier post) rented out a fun hotel in Palm Springs where they could party and swim throughout the night. Kelly had a lot of details in mind: escort cards attached to potted succulent plants, a self service photobooth setup, lemony desert table, and s’mors over a crystal fire pit to name a few. Courtney and I had a great time working with a fun planner/florist named Megan who executed the details and the flow of the event with ease, and Eric, the DJ, kept the party going. We shot a ton of images and will be spending the next week combing through the edit. However, we are just so excited that we couldn’t wait to share. There’s a lot of images in the post and even more in the gallery below. Stay tuned for their slideshow!


p.s. Courtney reminded me to mention that Kelly’s dress is a Monique Lhuillier.
