I was thrilled when Rachel reached out about her Palm Springs destination O’Donnell House wedding! At the time, Rachel was working on the accounting team at a jewelry startup here in San Francisco that I collaborate with regularly for their campaign photos. She & Steve aren’t the traditional type and really wanted their wedding day to feel more like a vacation for their guests – how cool is that? Palm Springs was an easy choice for them as they began the search as it’s a special place that they’d traveled to for vacation and they wanted their friends & family to experience a little bit of that desert magic!
The day of was so laid back, casual and fun and the weather was seriously perfect! Believe me, it can get HOT in Palm Springs, but if you wait till late October it’s so gorgeous out! One of my favorite laugh-out-loud moments was when Rachel entered the ceremony from the top of the staircase to Dr. Dre’s The Next Episode and when she got to the top of the aisle said “sorry, Mom!”. I just loved how R & S captured their personalities and relaxed style throughout the whole day – everything was perfect! There was also a pretty dang epic dance party underneath the stars that night. Enjoy these O’Donnell House wedding photos!
