Korakia Pensione Wedding: Palm Springs

Lan & Dean’s wedding was at Korakia Pensione bed and breakfast in Palm Springs, California.

As a Houston wedding photographer, I’m not always presented with lovely locations like the ones found around these restored historic Moroccan and Mediterranean-style villas.

This wedding was a small affair with fewer than 12 guests, but that didn’t stop Lan from pulling out all the stops to make a day to remember! Here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding event.

I always photograph a bride’s wedding dress hanging somewhere neat, but I think this is my favorite dress photo of all time. I’m thinking that this image may even be worthy of being entered in next year’s WPPI wedding photography competition (in the “Details” category)!

Lan and Dean got ready together in their suite at the Korakia. In my work as a wedding photographer, it’s kind of unusual to have it happen this way. In fact, I don’t think I have any other images of a groom with his bride’s dress in the background.

Lan & Dean’s dog dons his bow tie. Well, it’s done for him, but that’s just a technicality.

Don’t look now, but somebody’s coming. Damn, the neighbors here are noisy! Ooops, I didn’t mean to say he dresses kind of funny!

The Moroccan styled pillows were just sitting there so what else is any self-respecting wedding photographer supposed to do?

Dean was getting kind of crazy with the veil.

Apparently this jumping shot is a tradition with Lan, Dean, and the couple in the photo.

Look at how the wind gently lifted her veil to create this special portrait! (or did it?)

Bocce Ball! Just so you know, it was kind of scary squatting there at the end of the court while they threw heavy balls at me! (and believe it or not, the fact that the chairs matched the groom’s wedding colors was purely coincidental)

  2. I love all the pictures but my favorite is Lan and Dean in front of the little casita with her veil floating in the breeze. Of course I loved the pictures of Bonny and Dick. Lovely, creative photographs. Louise
