I remember it like it was yesterday! Veronica & Erik were married at the stunning Desert Falls Country Club in Palm Springs California on 9-6-2014. But our story starts a few months prior! When we first met, We met and a cute little Mexican Restaurant in Palm Springs for Dinner. We sat down, had a nice meal, and really got to talk about all their wedding day plans. We were all super excited about the big day and I was even more excited that they were considering me for there big day. After we talked for a while, they looked at each other, smiled looked at me and Veronica asked "will you be our photographer" and I said of course! As I do with all my clients, I checked in once a month to see how all the plans were coming along. Every step of the way we talked, they bounced ideas and wanted my opinion on different aspects of the wedding and It was gearing up to be a stunning wedding.
The big day was here! The table was set, decor was stunning and ready to go and the Everything looked amazing! We got to the Desert Falls Country club a little early and the staff was Awesome, They showed us around the venue sharing with us the plan for how the wedding party was going to walk down the isle, the process and where both Veronica and Erik were getting ready, as well as any updates they had for us. Both the Bride and Groom had opted for getting ready pictures, things, such as at every wedding, were running a little late. I checked in with the Bride and her party and things were not going as planned. Veronica's hair and make=up was not turning out the way she was wanting it to. Now as a guy, I thought it looked awesome, LOL. but she was not happy with it, so after a few tweaks and adjustments, Erika was put at ease to see it looking better. As the girls were still getting ready, I checked in with Erik and take a few images of him getting ready. He was decked out to the core in his Military Dress Blues! Shoes Polished, Pants Crisp, Jacket Pressed and a Cover to Round everything out!
The rest of the Ceremony went just as planned, with the one exception of a little Lipstick transfer from bride to groom and they were married on the greens with a stunning lake behind them! Here is just a taste of some of the Ceremony images!
We had so much fun that day! Right after the ceremony we took a few family pictures, then Raced off in our gulf carts to take pictures at a different spot for the Wedding Party Pictures. It was a blast! W were able to walk around to a different part of the lake, where we had stunning views of the mirrored lake behind us. After we took wedding party pictures, it was just the 3 of us. We took our time, walked around the course's lake, and took several stunning images! Then, jumped into the Gulf carts again, to get back to the club house for a few more images, and so we could get ready for the Grand entrance. The Reception went so smooth and easy that we were running early on time! We were even able to get some cool images the bride had shown me on social media! Here is some final examples of how stunning the rest of the night went!
