Friends Working Together
Oh hey gorgeous desert wedding!!!!
I’ve been dying to shoot a wedding just like this one for YEARS – the location, the light, the style, the super rad and hella chill couple and their guests… Every single element came together to make for a gorgeous and lively wedding day and I was ALL about those vibes.
When my friend Jasmine of Let’s Frolic Together asked me to shoot this wedding with her at the last minute; I borrowed a dress, broke out my limited vacation photography kit, and tried very hard to maintain my cool. I probably did a happy dance. You know the drill. No cool maintained.
About The Lautner Compound
The Lautner Compound consists of three beautiful spaces that together create a dreamy mid century modern wedding, event, and “micro-resort” space in Desert Hot Springs, CA.
Most noteworthy, The Lautner was designed and built as a desert hideaway in 1947 by legendary American architect John Lautner and consists of 4 private independent living spaces. It is surrounded by 10,000 sq ft of open air space called The Park which can accommodate weddings of up to 300 guests.
Adjoining The Lautner and The Park is the 1957 California Ranch House which extends the guest services and makes for a full-service on site wedding and event space. As a result, the entire compound is dreamy AF and perfect for any architecture, desert, & mid century modern loving couple.
