This super stylish and perfectly planned wedding at the Riviera in downtown Palm Springs California was really a blast to be a part of.  The bride, Taryn got ready with all her girls in a lovely suite at the hotel.  The girls all had very pretty matching robes and Taryn had a satin robe in white with the word "bride" on the back.  It was so much fun to photograph them getting their hair and makeup done by Team Hair and Makeup.  Taryn and Mat live in central California but fell in love with Palm Springs when they vacationed there a few years ago. They knew the Coachella Valley was where they would eventually say their vows.  They even had their gorgeous dogs there to be a part of the day, they had their own little bow ties and ankle cuffs, SO cute!   Jessica Fauls with Artisan Events was the coordinator and the decor was provided by Artisan Events and Floral decor.  The ceremony site was very simple and elegant, using gorgeous Moroccan Lanterns lit with tea lights.  The twilight ceremony was full of emotion and humor.   The main ballroom at the Rivera is so glamorous with its original chandelier and grand entrance.  The table centerpieces were so pretty, using a variety of roses, peonies and succulents in a variety of low and taller vases.  Their head table was highlighted with a settee with the words "bride and groom" hanging on the back. Along with the pop of glam using sequined pillows on the square seats around the room, it was a perfect evening. DJ James Gonzalez of Music Media Entertainment really got the party going with amazing tunes ranging from 80's pop to some country and even a bit of rap, the crowd loved it and had so much fun! 

Wedding Photography Palm Springs Riviera Hotel

This Riviera Hotel wedding was just stunning from beginning to end. Taryn and her girls got ready in a room specially set aside for them by Darin from the hotel. They provided snacks and champagne. Team Hair and Makeup worked on all of the girls. It was a wonderful buzz of energy in the room. This image is Taryn checking the finished product, I love the juxtaposition of her partial face along with the partial view of the Marylin Monroe artwork in the background. Both with the ruby red lips and dramatic eyes. I like it in black and white because it takes away any other distractions in the image and forces you to focus on double image.
