Christina & Francisco Vow Renewal


Christina & Francisco Vow Renewal

Talk about a dream shoot! This was both a styled photoshoot where vendors get to showcase their talents in a very curated way and a vow renewal! Christina and Francisco have been married for 15 years and have 3 children together. Their life seems so full of love and color and that comes through so clearly in these photos. Below are some of the photos from this hot desert day that would inspire anyway to get through 15 more years of marriage…and eat lots of popsicles.

The day took place at Sands Hotel & Spa in Indian Wells, where the days are hot but the drinks are ice cold.

Cheers to 15 years and many more!

After the ceremony, their dinner was held at the hotel. We used a variety of gauze and silk ribbons in various colors for meal indicators. Each guest received one with the bride and groom getting an extra set for themselves.

My favorite signs of the day include the classic desert saying of “it’s a dry heat”. Oh ok, because that makes the 105 degree temperature on a wedding day better. Courtney from After the Engagement came up with these fun signs to be displayed with the cocktail hour popsicles!

The cake, this backdrop! I loved all the bright colors and created the cake topper that wouldn’t compete, as the perfect touch on their perfectly colorful day.

Goodbye desert, until next time. Which with Courtney and her team, should be any moment now.
