This is going to be a massive blog post with lots of photos! I’m so excited to share this destination wedding I shot in Palm Springs. The ceremony and reception took place at the Spencer’s on the Mountain Restaurant which had breath-taking views. Hilary and Gavin got ready at the nearby Riviera Hotel, and I’m so glad they elected to do a first-look before the ceremony so that we would have ample time to do bridal party portraits and family portraits. There were so many amazing backdrops and variety of photos we were able to capture at the hotel and then at the ceremony site.
Hilary and Gavin did such a great job planning their wedding filled with intricate details. I loved how everything came together so wonderfully, and all of the decor was perfectly coordinated. Their wedding featured a mix of Jewish and Irish traditions, and included a ring-warming ceremony, a beautiful chuppah which they were married under, and ended with a Irish hand-binding ceremony. I hope these photos give you a tiny glimpse into their heartfelt and intimate day.
