Sperry & Kate | A Palm Springs wedding Avalon Hotel
So, it’s not often that I can get away these days. I used to travel all the time but it’s hard with little ones at home and I’ve become a bit of a homebody. But recently I’ve been feeling my travel bug needing to be scratched so I was psyched when Sperry & Kate contacted me about their Palm Springs wedding. Not only did I get to experience Palm Springs and the Avalon Hotel (which is a throwback to the city’s Golden Age), I was reunited with my beloved desert in the San Jacinto mountains (where I road tripped through so many times during my California years and where I saw Doug Aikens Mirror House) but I got to witness Sperry & Kate laughing their way through their entire wedding day. Seriously, these two have so much fun together and it kind of oozes out of them onto anyone who’s in their presence. They’re so full of joy as was everyone who came to be a part of this intimate, moving wedding experience – not to mention those that made one hell of a sassy dancefloor.
It was also awesome to work with new vendors who were seriously top notch (since it IS Palm Springs and so many people get married there.) Cathy O’Connell of Celebrations of Joy Events was a stellar planner, Lotus Garden Center created some amazing florals (two bouquets!) and DJ Chris Paul kept the dancefloor packed.
Sperry & Kate – thank you thank you thank you! There are no words for how beautiful and moving your wedding was. Hopefully, the photos will do it justice. <3
**just putting it out to the universe down here, I’d love to make more Palm Springs wedding photos!**
