About 5 months ago I was fortunate enough to photograph Lauren and Wes’ engagement photos in Palm Springs. We shared beers at the Parker Hotel, took some more engagement photos at Ace Hotel, cruised through the desert and generally had a kick ass time. These two were kind, generous, intelligent and creative. They were the type of people one should strive to be and they were beyond awesome. It is no wonder they were able to convince nearly a 100 people to fly out from Texas to party for their destination wedding. Lauren and Wes also had nearly 30 people in their wedding party as well which basically reinforces how cool these two are. Personally, I couldn’t get 4 people to come to a 80s party at my house even if free beer and free Doritos were available. Yeah so these two are rad, and when their wedding at the Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs came around I was ready to rock. Oh and did I mention they had a open bar? This is worth mentioning because nothing says “I am a spectacular human being” more than open bar.
The whole day ran smoothly thanks to Joey over at Artisan Events who runs a super tight schedule, and the bride and groom were so easy going that the whole day was smooth. Honestly, it was a great wedding from start to finish. I couldn’t imagine the stress of planning a out-of-state destination wedding and Lauren and Wes did so flawlessly. Below is a short glimpse into their wedding day!
