It is always an honor to photograph destination weddings at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa. I have been a prefferred wedding photographer for this Palm Desert resort for 15 years and I am so thankful to be on their team. Henry and Idalene live in Houston and wanted to have a destination wedding in Palm Desert. It was a gorgeous day for a wedding. The weather was perfect and Henry and Idalene were so alive with love for one another. It was such a pleasure helping them plan their destination wedding and I am looking forward to visiting them in Houston one day.

The wedding was very quaint and intimate. Henry and Idalene had their closest family and friends travel to Palm Desert to witness them exchange their wedding vows. All of the guests fell in love with this gorgeous destination hotel. The JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort is the nicest hotels in the desert. It is truly a magical destination.

The wedding ceremony was located at The Pointe and a evening reception under the stars followed with great food, drinks and friendship. Henry and Idalene were so happy and it was beautiful to witness their love story.

Here is a sneak peak into this beautiful Palm Desert destination wedding at the incredible JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa. Enjoy.

We just loved every minute of working with Kristin + Dan. They are the sweetest couple and they have the nicest family and friends. It was wonderful to have photographed Kristin and her Brother when they were little kids and then come full circle by photographing Kristin’s engagement and wedding photos. I am so happy that she found the man of her dreams in Dan. He is such a great guy and they both just stole our hearts..

We were thrilled when Kristin and Dan said they were going to be having their wedding reception at Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo. We love this wedding venue. Dan’s family is from North Dakota so Maravilla Gardens in Ventura was the perfect destination location. They first got married at Padre Serra Catholic Church in Camarillo.
Padre Serra is a gorgeous church. After the ceremony everyone headed over to Maravilla Gardens for a wonderful cocktail reception while the wedding party took photos. The patio was decorated with love stories of how Kristin and Dan met, cute wedding accents, signature drinks and lots of love and family. While the guests were eating and drinking, we took Kristin and Dan around Maravilla Gardens to some of our favorite locations on the property. The barn is always the first stop, and we were so pleased that Maravilla Gardens had out up a really cute rope swing on the back property. What a great addition to such a wonderful venue. The fields in the distance were in between crops, but the amber glow of the sunset along with the rich textures of the earth was beautiful for photos.

Kristin and Dan’s wedding reception was perfect. The weather was perfect, the ambience was amazing and the guests had a wonderful time. I loved all of the details that were included in the evening. The homemade salsa party favors were so clever, and the K and D accents were so cute. I just loved this wedding. Thanks so much Kristin and Dan for having us be a part of your amazing wedding day. We just love you both so much. Thanks to Maravilla Gardens for another great experience at your venue. Here is a sneak peak into this wonderful Camarillo Destination wedding. Enjoy!
