I arrived at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa to film Desiree's bridal prep, and as I walked into her hotel room, I was greeted by her adorable little pup. It was then I knew this was going to be an awesome day! Desiree was smiling from ear to ear and eager to get her beautiful gown on. As the ladies were getting ready and helping Desiree into her dress, I could tell they were all very happy for her and Nick, and excited to witness their love.
Meanwhile, in Nick's hotel room, he and the groomsmen were having a great time getting ready, but also watching the football game at the same time. As I asked Nick to look out the window and think of his bride, the smile that came over his face said it all.
Their ceremony took place on the picturesque Las Palmas Lawn, overlooking a beautiful pond with a waterfall and palm trees. It was a hot day, around 105 degrees, but that didn't stop all the smiles and happy faces waiting for the ceremony to begin.
As Desiree's father walked her down the aisle he gave a thumbs up. Nick and Desiree spoke their vows, exchanged rings, and literally tied a knot together. It was a beautiful ceremony.
The reception took place in one of the ballrooms at the resort, which was decked out with pale pink decorations, a candy bar, lighted wall mural, and gorgeous tables. They danced their way in and then the party started! It was a fun and exciting night that I had the privilege of capturing on film. Here's the highlight trailer from their movie and some of my favorite screen grabs.
