Elizabeth and Ryan’s wedding at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs was all I could have ever have hoped for. Not only did their wedding have colorful and quirky touches to it but it felt so happy, loving, and personal. The couple had been together for many years and when they finally decided to tie the knot they migrated their friends and families from San Francisco to sunny Palm Springs to have an epic celebration and it did not disappoint!

The Venue really set the vibe for the wedding….. cool, laid back, and creative, with pops of color from the very talented artist Laura Berger and her amazing mural that sits on the grounds near the swimming pool in the middle of the hotel. There are so many photo opportunities at the Ace I found myself in a photographer’s paradise documenting the custom light up Marquee sign that had Elizabeth and Ryan’s name on it, and all the cute little walk ways throughout the hotel and to top it off the hotel is surrounded by large Palm Trees and mountain views. If all that was not enough to inspire the day, the talent hired to bring this wedding to life could not have been more amazing! “The desert in bloom” theme was apparent when I saw the colorful, and whimsical floral displays by Of the Flowers.

The ceremony was one of the most memorable parts of the day when much to everyone’s surprise the bride walked down the aisle to the Jurrasic Park theme song! I am huge fan so I could not wipe the smile off my face and neither could anyone one else, it was a really fun moment. Elizabeth’s sisters were her bridesmaids and you could really feel the bond between all of the sisters throughout the day… they also gave a pretty hilarious toast at the reception.Speaking of the reception can we talk about the epic dance party that was had with many throwback 90’s hits played by The Supermoon Dj’s husband and wife team…. it was so good that Ryan’s grandma was on the floor multiple times cutting up a rug.

With so many good moments at this wedding I could go on about it or I can just let you all take a look and relive those moments through my photographs!

E and R’s Palm Springs Engagement Shoot by jaclyn szabo

When Elizabeth and Ryan asked me if we could go to the windmills in Palm Springs the evening before their wedding day at The Ace Hotel I jumped for joy! An excuse to get dressed up and photograph these two lovebirds on the eve of such a important day in their lives without all the pressure of the wedding day? Yes please! What I did not expect was just how stylish their outfits were going to be! Ryan in a textured suit and Elizabeth in that canary yellow dress with colorful patterned heels blew me away. The cherry on top was the vintage car parked outside of their hotel that we had to take photos in front of. Then they told me they had a friend in the car that wanted to come along for the photoshoot…. their majestic and sweet dog Zelda! I am proud to share this shoot with you all and if there are any couples out there who are thinking of doing a day before shoot along with their wedding day I assure you, you will not regret it.

Bret and Baylee got married on the the first day of Fall at Brookview Ranch, in Agoura Hills, California. Brookview Ranch is a breath taking property to begin with with beautiful mountain backdrops and oak trees but the team who helped put this wedding together made the wedding even more amazing. Bret and Baylee’s wedding was stylish but simple putting the details where it matters like the amazing triangle arch provided by Jane Alexandra Events and moody florals by Unique Floral Designs. My favorite part of the day had to be when our sunset photos took place, we arrived by golf cart up to the top of the venue for sunset but instead what we got was the Harvest Moon to adorn the backdrop of the couple’s portraits. If that was not enough Bret and Baylee danced the night away to Neil Young. It could not have been a more magical wedding with such a kind and cool couple.
