I have so many feels for this beautiful day, this beautiful place, this beautiful couple, and this beautiful community. From the gorgeousness that is the Cree Estate to the playful, irreverent creative energy they brought to their day to the amazing moves their entire community brought to the dance floor to the piles and piles of pie to the silent disco (can I shoot more silent discos please?!). OH, my HEART!
We love an all-in-one venue like Cree Estate that allows couples to get ready onsite. It really helps to cut down on possible stressors of the day when you eliminate travel time and coordination. It also gives us a chance to arrive and scope out the grounds, take the lay of the land, and soak in the vibe of your day. Such a great start to this day in such an inspired venue. It has that old-world Spanish Moorish flair mixed with the modern chic style of Palm Springs. So much dreamy greenery and a darling view of the mountains. And getting to work with our dear friend, the wildly badass Courtney of After the Engagement is icing on the cake!
These two went above and beyond in all the little memorable moments. We were especially obsessed with their first look when Kyle turned toward us while we were shooting and said of his bride: “Holy shit, did you see this?” We loved their adventure in the desert and were just about moved to tears during their ceremony with the seven blessings by their friends. And extra-specially when the performance of the St Vincent song “New York” took their guests by storm mid-ceremony (it’s got some language, y’all).
We just adore couples who care above all about having a blast with all their favorite people, and this day was all about the fun, the feels, and the fierceness.
