Colony 29 Wedding PhotographerGrooms portrait at Colony 29 in Palm Springs. Love the white jacket! Doesn't Rashad look like James Bond? I love the white jacket with the contrast of the black bow tie, so perfect! Rashad has the sweetest smile and I'm so glad I was able to capture it in this nice relaxed portrait. Erica and Rashad's wedding reception was at Colony 29 in Palm Springs. If you haven't checked out this venue for weddings and other celebrations, you are missing it. It is a gem. Built in the 1920's, it was designed to replicate a villa artist John Burham saw in Portugal. Artists were invited to visit and some took up residence. The peaceful and serene environment provided the perfect atmosphere for artists to create their work. Surrounded by nature and the spectacular views of the Coachella Valley it was a popular location. It fell into disrepair after Burham's death in 1956. In 1997 is was purchased and the new owners spent 13 years restoring it to it's original aesthetic and even added some more modern amenities. Today it is a hidden gem. Photographing weddings and events on this property with its meticulously maintained grounds and old European look and feel is a true joy.
