Palm Springs Wedding Photography : Alexis + Manuel // Viceroy Wedding : Part Two}

10.28.14  |  weddings

Part two of Alexis and Manuel's wedding at the Viceroy Palm Springs features their touching ceremony and some fun group portraits. I loved Alexis's modern minimalist vibe that worked perfectly at the Viceroy. Here are some words from Alexis about the selection of their venue and the style and design inspiration for their wedding.

The Style (Design Inspiration)
"The beginning steps of the wedding-planning process were completely overwhelming to me. We adore San Francisco (our home) so we looked for venues in SF but nothing seemed to fit just right with our style, budget and "must-have" requirements.  I love the look of Palm Springs weddings and the predictability of the *perfect* fall weather there.  Since most of my family is in Las Vegas, most of Manuel's family is in the Bay Area and we have many friends in Southern California, we figured Palm Springs was an ideal "destination" wedding somewhere in the middle of it all. 

When we looked for venues in Palm Springs, the Viceroy just fit the bill.  The little boutique hotel is intimate, stylish, happy and fun...just as we hoped the wedding to be.  We fell in love with the cozy event spaces, the terracotta roofed bungalows and mature fruit trees all over the property.  The event staff there -- lead by the fantastic Olivia Prescott -- is super on top of everything, extremely helpful, thorough and professional.

I love bold, high-contrast, modern design. When scouring blogs for wedding inspiration I found tons of romantic, soft, rustic, truly gorgeous, enviable weddings...but that style just isn't me.  I went with what felt right -- mainly black and white with pops of fuchsia and gold.  I wanted everything to look simple and clean with a touch of whimsy and humor and fun." 















I just love the last one above. What I love about it... The relationship and emotions between Alexis and her dad got me. I love the way the three of their hands are all reaching out... for a final embrace before marriage, for a shoulder to welcome the man his daughter is going to marry, for the hand of his fiance. And I love how they're in the center of the frame, surrounded by people who love them.













You know you're in the era of the smart phone when the vows are contained there. Actually, it was really cute and Manuel's words moved Alexis to tears.











There's nothing like a confetti explosion as the couple walks back down the aisle!











What a great group.



The Brady Bunch set of images below were not my idea but the ever creative Alexis's. They had something like this on their wedding website and wanted to recreate it on the wedding day.



Stay tuned for Alexis and Manuel's desert portraits!
