Eclectic 29 Palms Inn Resort Wedding

"Jessamyn planned every little bit of this wedding, and poured her heart into the details. She grew up working at 29 Palms Inn as a teenager every summer, and the resort holds many childhood memories for her family and friends! Jessamyn and Tom now live in Oregon, but because of their history in Southern California, they knew they wanted a destination wedding back at 29 Palms. Her bridesmaids did all the florals including bouquets together in the getting ready suite - squad goals!! They decorated the reception tables with succulents that the guests could take home with them, and served their favorite tacos and beers for dinner!

While every wedding is emotional and heart-filled, Jessamyn and Tom's was extra special. Jessamyn's darling nine year old nephew was diagnosed with advanced cancer just a few short months before the wedding. Exactly one month before the wedding date, little Sawyer passed. The most important thing at this time for the couple was to celebrate his life, and to remember him in everything they did together as a family at the wedding. Jessamyn had a locket handmade to hold Sawyer's photos close to her heart throughout the day; it was engraved "To the moon and back", a little phrase they always quoted to each other when sending their love. Since Jessamyn's sister couldn't make the travel for the wedding, the guests took turns periscoping, snap chatting, and face timing the wedding the entire time so the sister could still "be there". Normally, photographers try to avoid cell phones in their images, but with the special meaning it meant for this couple I wanted to embrace, and include it for their memories! They ended the night with all the guests on the dance floor for a special song just rocking out in honor of Sawyer who loved to dance! It was definitely a night to remember, and a wedding that as a photographer, I will never forget!" -Hello Blue Photo
