Palm Springs City hall elopement photography

The two grooms, Will and James eloped to Palm Springs to get married. They have fond memories of lovely vacations with their families playing in the pools and hiking the Indian Canyons in their youth. They both live in San Francisco but knew that their wedding ceremony would take place in Palm Springs. Neither groom wanted a big wedding so they deduced an elopement with just their four closest friends would be the perfect way to celebrate their nuptials.

So they decided on a very casual ceremony at the Palm Springs City hall building. They wore shorts and flip flops, which is SO Palm Springs! Their four friends witnessed the whole affair and one of the friends held the ring until the ring exchange.

The photo is in black and white because it was photographed in a documentary style and I felt that black and white really emphasized the impact of the ring itself.
