Lauren and JB, who live in San Francisco, traveled to the desert this February to say “I do” at their La Quinta Resort wedding. Even their dog, Biden, traveled to Palm Springs to be a part of the lively celebration. Every second of this day was filled with the good kind of tears, cozy hugs, and sweet smiles. If you don’t fall in love with Lauren and JB’s wedding in the next few photos, I’d be surprised.

Getting Ready

When I first met JB and Lauren, I knew their wedding would become a solid favorite of mine. They’re just cool people and their laid back attitudes and appreciation for photography make them a photographer’s dream. Plus, they’re always so patient with my multitude of ideas for photos which, at a huge property like La Quinta, were basically endless.

Bridal Party

Full of mostly siblings and their closest friends, the bridal party absolutely rocked the desert chic look. The bridesmaids wore neutral gowns in different silhouettes and the groomsmen donned the neatest blue and white patterned ties. JB is no stranger to style, as he told me at their engagement session, so I was very excited to see what he would wear for the wedding. I was not disappointed!

La Quinta Resort Wedding Ceremony

The expansiveness of La Quinta Resort’s golf course reached into the distant mountains, which made for an incredible ceremony view. Every guest remarked at how gorgeous of a backdrop it was and couldn’t help but snap photos, especially of the breathtaking mountains. Lauren and JB said their vows in front of a triangular arch custom-built for their wedding. Gorgeous flowers and pampas grass, which moved beautifully in the light breeze, covered each side of the structure. Talk about a perfectly Palm Springs ceremony.
