PALM SPRINGS ELOPEMENT

Mar 19, 2015

Christopher and Ernesto Elope! 

I was honored when Christopher and Ernesto asked me to photograph their intimate elopement. In all the places to get married in Palm Springs Ernesto wanted the Wellness Park in Palm Springs. He said it reminded him of back home, in Mexico! With lots of vegetation, plants, and trees, it made him feel at home. Finding “the spot” where they wanted to get married in the park came easy to Ernesto. At the top corner of the park they had a beautiful spiral rock pathway that became significant for Christopher and Ernesto. Symbolizing to them that life only got sweeter with time!

Christopher loves to do yard work and to grow his garden, together it was the perfect combination! Richard Cadieux performed the ceremony and everything was flawless. From beginning to end the ceremony was so heartfelt and emotional, I’m glad I had the camera to cover my eyes! It took 12 years for Christopher and Ernesto to tie the knot and I couldn’t be happier for them! Between the sensitive artist in Ernesto and the practical Christopher, these two compliment each other in so many ways. Ernesto likes to use the color of nature to enrich his soul while Christopher loves to garden and bring fresh ingredients to their table. They were so kind and generous while following me around the streets of Palm Springs to find the perfect background for their personalities.

Towards the end of our time together we ended up where we started in the Wellness Park. Ernesto was naming all the different types of trees while Christopher was naming all of the plants. Together they could have an atrium in their backyard before I could even name one plant! I am so happy for these two international lovers!
