Palm Springs photographer Indian canyon wedding

Lindsey and Tab's wedding was a whirlwind of fun. They got married at Our Lady of Solitude Church in downtown Palm Springs. It's in the old Spanish style, red tile roof, white walls and Saltillo tiles. Lots of dark gorgeous wood inside and amazing light coming through the stained glass windows. The plaque on the front of the church reads: Plans for Our Lady of Solitude church were begun in February 1926 under the direction of Father Philip LaVies, who came weekly to Palm Springs from the Indian mission school in Banning. In 1928, temporary church services began on this site, obtained from the Southern Pacific Railroad with the help of P.T. Stevens. Our Lady of Solitude, a Mission Revival structure, was completed in 1930. The builder was Alvah Hicks, a local contractor, and the architect was Albert Martin, who designed the Los Angeles City Hall and Loyola College. The rectory on Alejo Road was added in 1964, while the parish center, facing Belardo Road, was completed in 1976 I just love photographing wedding ceremonies in this church, it has so much history and character. The bride and groom were surprised with a getaway car as they exited the church, a friend brought his Porsche Pantera complete with "just married" sign on the back! How fun was that!
