villa carmelita wedding photography: natalie & peder

natalie and peder were married at sonny & cher’s love nest in palm springs called villa carmelita. they, and their guests, traveled all the way from Minnesota to celebrate and party under the beautiful desert sky and it was nothing short of magical.

i am so thankful for our paths crossing.. these two hold a very special place in my heart – just two of the most kind and generous people I have ever met and for their spirit I am forever grateful.  thank you for inspiring me in more ways than I can ever express in words.

i also had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session which can be seen here and published here.

this wedding is featured on the always amazing style me pretty here today – thank you!!
