The floral arrangements. The color palette. The stationery. Every detail about this shoot is so fun, summery, and bright!
“Held at The Respite in Indio, California, this editorial consisted of a bride model and a bride and groom model. Against the neutral desert backdrop, the coral, pink, and yellow hues of the florals, as well as the divine tulle gown really made a statement. This album consists of a wedding ceremony set-up, complete with a full floral arch and ground florals, a hand-torn custom stationery suite, a tablescape adorned with divine florals, and lush greenery mantle decor. It also features a stunning cake decorated with brightly colored florals and citrus leaves. The Respite in Indio is a private estate and brand-new wedding venue rich with desert charm, such as gorgeous palm trees, incredible cacti, a large pool, and the most incredible desert light. The bride model entered the pool for some creative editorial shoots and we wrapped up the shoot with all three models in the nearby open desert, right up against the mountains to capture the essence of the desert landscape.”
