There are many moments of a wedding that get my heart beating double time, no doubt about that. But the vows? Oh, the vows take the cake. And that’s exactly why I fell head over heels for this slice of love from our friends at Hoo Films. It’s dedicated to the captivating words exchanged between these two beautiful people. So get cozy with your morning cup of coffee and indulge in a little vow goodness.
From Hoo Films…I just adore these two. From the minute Stacy and I got on the phone, we just clicked. I knew Jackson had to be just as charismatic as Stacy is. And he was. Their charisma is hard to deny when you see Stacy and Jackson together. They have such a captivating love and joy. We were able to work with an amazing team on this one. Such a romantic couple and I feel honored to have been able to be a part of this beautiful event. The vows were just so captivating… I loved every word exchanged between these two.

From lakeside kisses to a formal attire stroll in the desert, every picture is dreamier than the last. Cozy on up to the full gallery for more!

From The Bride… Jason and I are San Francisco residents, but our love story began in San Diego. It only made sense for us to incorporate it in a special way, which is why we chose to do our wedding / engagement shoot there. We wanted the shoot to feel fun, playful, and maybe even surprising; thus, pajamas and donuts outdoors was something that was easily agreed on! Carmen, our photographer, is owed the credit for suggesting the dock by the lake. Per her suggestion we chose San Marcos Lake as our location. We also wanted to do something with formal-wear in a contrasting setting and the San Marcos Lake area kindly obliged with its desert-like surroundings. We’re not an overly “cutesy” couple, so I loved the way Carmen was able to capture our not-so-mushy personalities and the less traditional nature of the shoot while still giving them a romantic vibe!

Darlings, I’d say we’re due for a good dose of modern. Modern with a little spunk and whimsy tossed in for good measure, like this Viceroy Palm Springs fete from Heather Kincaid. Kissed by the California sun, it’s a day chock-full of charm, from the happy blooms by Artisan Event Floral Decor to the hip stationery from Mae Mae Paperie. Devour every inch of pretty right here in the gallery.
From Artisan Event Floral Décor…Colors of hot pink, yellow and accents of silver! Stylized and artistic! Candlelight and Romance! Flowers and succulents as art.
From the beautiful Bride… Nate and I had visited a number of locations in LA and Palm Springs and didn’t have that feeling that they were “the” location until we went to the Viceroy Palm Springs. Everything felt right from the moment I started emailing with Olivia Prescott (Director of Events) to our site visit and follow ups. They were so welcoming, courteous, nice and treated our bulldog, Chief, like a king when on our initial site visit. We knew we wanted to incorporate him into the wedding and the Viceroy was the only location that treated him like he was part of our family and that it wouldn’t be a burden to have him at the property or in the wedding. There wasn’t any extra pressure to rent out the entire hotel (like several other locations) and we could really customize it to be the wedding we were envisioning. We both loved the coziness and serene feeling we had walking through the property and the Palm Springs backdrop was to-die for! We decided on our drive home that it was the place where we had to get married and worked on convincing our close family to a destination wedding. Couldn’t have imagined getting married anywhere else.
We hadn’t started looking into planners until we officially booked The Viceroy Palm Springs and my best friend has used Joey and Artisan for her wedding at the Parker Palm Springs and the Viceroy said if the Artisan team was available on our wedding date, that they were the team to use for everything. I met Joey when I was a bridesmaid for my best friend’s wedding and had that feeling again after speaking with him about how I envisioned our wedding day and knew he and the team were reliable, professional and the team that could bring all of our ideas to life. They were flexible, welcoming of new ideas and problem solvers for everything that came along leading up to and on the wedding day. All of our guests were so amazed by the beautiful wedding we had created and heard over and over again from them that it was the most beautiful and classy wedding they had ever been to.
