Ace Hotel wedding: Ashley + Kris

September 19, 2012

Remember this adorable couple from their Joshua Tree engagement shoot? They’re married! And they celebrated in one of our favorite places to soak up the sun, Palm Springs. Having good friend, Teresa Lo (also one of A’s bridesmaids), recently starting her own event planning company, Tala Events, Ashley was in good hands. She gave her all the inspiration she had gathered from wedding blogs, and had the talent of Hollin Brodeur behind both the photography and videography. Dream wedding accomplished.

She’s looking extra darling in that floral headpiece from Mignonne Handmade.

Start planning far in advance so that you can relax the last few weeks before your wedding and enjoy your day! If you are clueless like I was when planning a wedding and are fortunate to have a talented friend, have them help you get organized or hire a wedding coordinator. Take at least 10 minutes on your wedding day to walk around and really soak in all of the details (bring a plate of food with you)! Lastly, appreciate the time with your husband and have fun while taking your wedding photos because this will probably be the only time you will have a moment to enjoy each other.

Their video, also shot by Hollin Brodeur is just as sweet as their photos. Watch all the way through – it has the cutest ending!

Congrats Ashley + Kris!
