Personal | Honeymoon | LA & the Ace Hotel, Palm Springs

Ace Hotel Palm Springs wedding photographer

About a week ago, on a beautiful Saturday evening in the city, I married my best friend and the love of my life. We’ve been together for almost eight years, so I was sure the whole day would feel more like a fun party for everything, but I have to say that our wedding went far beyond that. We wrote the whole ceremony and our vows, and got married in the garden in the back of Salvage One here in Chicago. We took off for LA bright and early the next morning, and spent the most wonderful, relaxing five days I’ve ever experienced wandering around Echo Park, downtown LA (where we got amazingly tasty and free honeymoon coffee from Handsome Coffee Roasters), Venice Beach and then packing up our rental car and making the scenic drive into Palm Springs to stay at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club. Even though we enjoyed LA, Palm Springs was a little slice of heaven and I’m pretty sure that I could be happy splitting all my time between the hikes and bike rides in the desert, the margaritas by the pool, nights up on the stargazing deck, lazy games of ping-pong, and relaxing by the private fire pit on the patio outside of our room.  I’m still dreaming of Palm Springs (and the Ace!) and already dying to plan a return trip.
