Smoke Tree Ranch, Palm Springs, CA - Wedding Day Photos // Jessica + Lance
Choosing a wedding venue is such an important part of setting the overall vibe for your wedding day. As a Southern California wedding photographer, I am lucky enough to work at some amazing venues and cities, but photographing Palm Springs Weddings is always such a blast. There’s nothing like the atmosphere of Palm Springs: the desert, the architecture, the retro vibes. Palm Springs weddings are some of the best. Jessica and Lance’s Palm Springs wedding represented everything I love about the area and more. Their wedding day included romantic, dreamy, and desert-inspired details—and of course—their adorable pup, Duke, who made his way into many of their wedding day portraits. Their desert wedding color palette was composed of neutrals, muted pinks and purples, making for a perfect early-spring wedding. I adored Jessica’s desert-inspired bouquet; an arrangement of blush, white and violet flowers, joined together with succulents. The bridesmaids’ bouquets looked incredible with their light blush and mauve flowy bridesmaids dresses. The highlight of their wedding gallery is their bride and groom portraits we photographed in the Palm Springs desert. I am so obsessed! We had the opportunity to photograph some fun and romantic wedding portraits in the open desert, and also at a pretty cactus garden at Smoke Tree Ranch. Their chemistry is palpable, and the desert background made for the dreamiest photographs. We were lucky enough to have beautiful lighting all day, too! Their reception was held at Smoke Tree Ranch, which was the perfect venue for a relaxed soiree. The bohemian vibes were carried through with neutral table runners and twinkle lights above the dining area. I loved all of the bespoke touches, including lots of unfinished wood décor items. The reception was such a fun party with heartfelt toasts and an intimate first dance from the new bride and groom.
I hope you two had the best honeymoon in Thailand and are loving married life! Thank you for letting me be part of your day!
