Desert Willow Golf Resort is an amazing venue for a wedding.  It has it all, amazing views, beautifully landscaped grounds and open desert….  a photographers dream! I love being able to provide my clients with a variety of looks for their wedding portraits, so this venue is perfect.
Leiloni and Herman came all the way from Canada along with all of their family and friends for their beautiful wedding.  The weather was stunning, maybe a little windy, but Leiloni and Herman both had a such a great sense of humor about it.  They figured it wasn’t snowing, so win win!! Leiloni was super nervous, but we did a “first look” with Herman and the minute she saw him, she relaxed tremendously.  We got some lovely portraits of the two of them before the ceremony in spite of the wind!

The ceremony was held on the patio at the Desert Willow Clubhouse which overlooks the golf course and has a spectacular view of the desert mountains to the Northeast.
