A Colorful La Quinta Resort Wedding // Kevin + Brooke

I don’t think there are two sweeter souls than Brooke and Kevin. It was a true joy to witness these two FINALLY get married in the desert last year. It was a long awaited event and one that I will love looking back on and remembering for years to come.

Kevin and Brooke tied the knot at La Quinta Resort & Spa and didn’t skimp on any details, as you can see! With the help of COJ Events, they put together the most beautiful and desert themed event for all of their friends and family. From the escort wall of mini tequila bottles and fresh palm fronds on their tablescapes to the hanging rattan lanterns above the head table and brightly colored florals, every detail was carefully thought out. There really isn’t anything like getting married in Palm Springs, if you ask me.

One of the reasons I keep coming back to Palm Springs to photograph weddings is not only because I’m a sucker for that desert sun, but it’s because of the cool, colorful, and often funky decor elements people incorporate into weddings down there. Don’t get me wrong, I love a classic and muted wedding too, but sometimes I need to escape to the desert to get my fill of color! And I was in paradise at this Palm Springs wedding.

I won’t go on and on about how epic Brooke and Kevin’s wedding day was because I hope you can see that from the photos, but one fun trend that is becoming more popular is the bridal reveal to her bridesmaids. So I wanted to make sure to note that because I think it’s a fun little moment that can create some really special and emotionally filled photos! Brooke’s dress was a complete secret from her girlfriends, so the reveal of her two piece wedding dress and pearl laced veil was a big surprise for her bridesmaids. But even if your friends have seen you in your dress, it’s still a very sweet and special moment when you emerge as a bride on your wedding day.

Thank you again Palm Springs for another epic event in the sun!
