Destination Wedding Romance// Brandon & Hannah
Wedding Romance at Desert Willow Golf Resort
Planning their destination wedding at Desert Willow was the perfect setting for this Washington, D.C. couple. With Winter in full swing, a destination wedding to sunny Palm Springs was ideal! Desert Willow Golf Resort, as usual, delivered with breathtaking mountain views, scenic fairways, rolling hills and a gorgeous winter sky.
Brandon and Hannah planned their romantic wedding with family and friends in mind. Their loving circle included many who traveled from abroad (that’s fancy for way over the ocean). Heartfelt speeches, and toasts were given from family and friends. One of my favorite reception moments was Hannah dancing with their ring bearer. It brought such a joyful smile to his adorable little face. It was priceless!
THEIR FIRST LOOK
Yes! To wedding romance with a first look! I am in photographer heaven when we have the opportunity to photograph a first look with the Bride and Groom. It opens up an array of romantic possibilities that leave us with photos which we can all ooh and aah over. I honestly get so excited, for these moments. The Groom turning to see his stunning Bride…the Bride captivated by her Groom’s smile…meeting eye to eye, they hold hands, pause, smile the biggest smiles in the universe because in this moment the universe is theirs, just the two of them…it’s serene. It’s magical and I absolutely love it!
THE TWO BECOME ONE
The wedding romance continued on the Terrace, overlooking the picturesque landscape of Desert Willow. Their officiant shared a humorous, yet compelling message of love, marriage, and the Lord; leaving a lasting impression with family and friends. On this beautiful day, Brandon and Hannah pledged their love to one another and the two became one.
Wedding celebrations continued into the evening with an indoor reception surrounded with love and laughter from those they hold dear.
Q & A’s with Brandon and Hannah
Erica: What were your favorite moments?
Hannah: Brandon liked the cake cutting. I secretly liked the awkwardness of the speakers not working well haha!
Hannah: weddings are fun but marriage is SO AWESOME!
The celebrating didn’t end there. The next day, Brock and I would be traveling to one of my FAVORITE places in California with our fabulous newlyweds to continue the excitement with their Day After Session, (blog post coming next)!
