This is pretty much one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve ever featured on SMP. Photographed and filmed by MIMMO & NAZ, this little gem is a lesson in romance. The old pier, the simple and yet utterly gorgeous color palette, the sweet and yet approachable details. And the glowing bride and groom. I pored over these photographs a million times and seemed to see something different each and every time I did. Click here to see lots more!
Palm Springs California – Colony Palms Hotel. Tina and Brandon live in L.A. and found us right on SMP. She loved both the Super 8mm films and Photography and had to have us document her wedding in Palm Springs. We flew down from Toronto to LA and drive almost 4 hours to Palm Springs to document a 2 day ceremony held at the Colony Palms Hotel, in Palm Springs. The first day was the white wedding followed by an outdoor reception later that evening. The second day was a traditional Korean ceremony as well held at the Colony Palms. Later that same evening we decided to head out to the Joshua Tree National Park and photograph them. We had an amazing time with both of them.
And if you’ve fallen in love with the sweet simplicity of this gorgeous wedding, just wait until you see this…
I know. It’s beyond beautiful. Mimmo + Naz take such a beautiful perspective with every wedding that they are a part of…whether it’s film or cinema. Both speak volumes to just how talented this duo is. Here is one more super 8 clip from Tina and Brandon’s wedding. And if you aren’t already weeping, grab the kleenex because you will be after this one…
From Mimmo + Naz…”Tina never got to have her dance with her dad on her wedding night. The night was a party and a most memorable time but the next morning when everyone left Palm Springs Tina shared with us her disappointment and how she just wished to have had that night back again. With less than 24hrs before our flight we suggested calling her dad back in Los Angeles to meet us at Santa Monica Pier early the next morning. Before any busker or tourist or crowd Dad and daughter got to have their dance!”
