Nicole & Brian: A Palm Springs Dream Wedding

March 9, 2019



When Nicole first reached out to me, I googled her venue name and instantly knew this was going to be my dream wedding to shoot. & so when she was explaining her details to me, I had a feeling we were about to be best friends. I mean heck, we even had the same name & blonde hair 🤪


The day was just perfect. A day time celebration with blue skies and 70° sunshine, and an evening of twinkle lights and speeches under the SoCal stars. The yellow details popped in every photo and made my heart so happy! The lemon trees and ocean blue pool made the whole thing feel like a fairytale. I haven't even mentioned the palm trees and the rocky San Jacinto Mountains as the ceremony backdrop — I mean come on.


To top it all off, Nicole secretly chopped her hair during the cocktail hour and arrived to the reception with the cutest new do and dress! Make sure you scroll all the way down to see how Brian reacted to Nicole's surprise! If I didn’t say this was the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen, I’d be lying. I had the best time doing what I love while making life long friends on top of it.


Nicole & Brian — I wish you a forever full of love and happiness. By the way you looked at each other and laughed together, I know you will have nothing short of that. 


Thank you to all the vendors who made this wedding a dream come true for Nicole & Brian!
