I love a wedding that ends with tequila and a dance party. Desert weddings become more popular every year. It’s a trend that I don’t see going away ever. It’s easy to see why couples are drawn to desert venues, it’s a warm beautiful place filled with wide-open skies. In the California desert, you have so many incredible options for a desert wedding venue; Joshua Tree is probably the most popular location for elopements, Palm Springs is perfect for the eclectic funky wedding, and further south in Palm Desert is Lago Vista Ranch in Thermal California.
Lago Vista Ranch isn’t just a venue, it’s an experience. The venue is incredible and ultra-private and doubles as a vacation rental. Meaning, you and your whole wedding party can stay and enjoy a nice long weekend of fun. The property includes a private beach, lake with floating dock, a pool, and spa, with stunning views of the Santa Rosa Mountains. This southern desert hideaway is definitely worth a look.
Thermal is a relatively central part of the Palm Desert area. You could easily do day trips, or fancy couples sessions, in Palm Springs, Salton Sea, Joshua Tree, etc. You know who to call for any photography needs. Get in touch here, and as always, please enjoy my take on this super classy Lago Vista Ranch wedding.
A California based photographer keeping it real and capturing all the perfect moments. Hey! My name is Teresa. Between my large Sicilian family, crazy friends and animated boyfriend, I have a tremendous amount of nicknames. SO we will go with Teresa for now but feel free to get creative once we get to know each-other. I was born and raised on the Central Coast in the small town of Templeton, lived in LA during my early 20’s and then spent about 6 years in New York. I’m now back in CA and loving every moment. All I can say is sunshine and tacos, but I do miss bagels and pizza. I love to travel, be outside, cycle and discover new places, eat ice cream and enjoy a cheeseburger, french fries and an ice cold beer tremendously. I’m pretty damn normal, easy to be around and love to laugh around new company. If you are ready, I am ready. Let’s dive in! www.teresalojacono.com
