For Jason and I, Palm Springs holds a very special place in our hearts. It’s one of our favorite destinations to vacation and the city where we had our wedding. So much history and love is wrapped around Palm Springs and last weekend’s trip was one of our best yet. Naturally I brought my camera along to document every moment!
The weather was a pleasant 80 degrees, sunny and breezy; which meant lots of time spent sipping cocktails and relaxing in the spa. (Even Jason can take a good picture with my new camera-no small feat!)
The very best part of our weekend was the time we spent together in a place we both find so much inspiration. I may have got a little photo happy…but Jason was a good sport about it, mostly.
There is no limit of amazing and beautifully designed hotels in Palm Springs. I couldn’t resist photographing the colorful Saguaro hotel. It’s like a giant candy bar stuck in the middle of the dessert.
On Saturday we spent the afternoon having lunch poolside at the Viceroy, the hotel where we got married. It our first time visiting since our wedding day and the grounds were just a beautiful as I remembered. It’s a good thing the camera wasn’t pointed on me…emotional wreck!
In full tourist fashion we followed a driving tour of Palm Springs, stopping to photograph all of the amazing Mid-Century Modernist architecture. These two homes are two of my favorites.
While it was hard to leave this magical weekend behind, I am happy I took the time to photograph the city that has become so special to us as a couple. I’ve been searching for some new art for our home. I think a few of these photos will definitely make the walls!
