Dania & Bruce
Dania and Bruce had their unforgettable wedding celebration at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs on May 20th. Their intimate wedding was both whimsical and heartwarming which left me feeling incredibly inspired.
Dania and Bruce are originally from Chicago and decided to have their dream destination wedding here in the low desert. This wedding celebration was photographed entirely on film, polaroid, and Super 8, giving it a timeless feel that is true to Palm Springs.
The wedding morning started off slowly with a simple breakfast, lounging by the pool, and soaking up the Palm Springs sunshine. Dania and Bruce began getting ready later in the evening and afterward shared an intimate first look. First looks are a great option if you want to have a private moment together before the ceremony. I find that first looks are more common for couples who want to take portraits before the ceremony. This means you can relax and enjoy cocktail hour with all of your guests directly after the ceremony!
Following family formals and a sunset ceremony, Dania and Bruce enjoyed their signature drinks, a gorgeous sunset, and a cool afternoon breeze. This cocktail hour provided the perfect downtime before a night full of dancing!
If you are planning a wedding in Palm Springs, I would highly recommend considering the Ace Hotel & Swim Club for your venue. This incredible location has two restaurants, a fantastic bar, and lots of unique hotel rooms for you and your guests. It is indeed a one-stop shop for your wedding weekend with up to 4,000 square feet of flexible space to host your celebration. If you stay at the Ace, you will be in close proximity to downtown Palm Springs (a quick 5-minute car ride). Here you will find some of the best restaurants, bars, and shopping in the city. What I love the most about this venue is that it is super customizable to fit your needs and wedding vision!
