Palms Springs Christmas Wedding

When Yuna Leonard showed us this wedding they shot, we squealed with glee! Phil and Sasheen met in London 15 years ago, and tied the knot sunny Palm Springs at Elvis’ Honeymoon Estate, where he lived with Priscilla during their first year of marriage. So add Palms Springs and Elvis to a Christmas theme, and what do you get? Pure vintage bliss. Their vintage Christmas inspiration was carried throughout with silver and pink, that was also translated onto gorgeous florals designed by Sugar Branch Events. Don’t miss the adorable highlight film from Hello Super 8 at the end.

From the photographer, Yuna Leonard: Phil + Sasheen chose an classic and authentic vintage, mid-century style in as the setting for their wedding, Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway Estate, Palm Springs. They adore all things 50s-60s and their wedding was full of their characters. The love story began in London where Sasheen met Phil and fell in love. The bride’s dress was from 1961 and the grooms suit was from the same era and Palm Springs just oozes the mid-century design aesthetic that they live and love. The wedding colors are baby pink and silver {A vintage Christmas theme!} There were only 36 guests. Close families and best friends. Very intimate and very special. These lovebirds rock the day!

Phil and Sasheen are lovely. Both soft spoken and incredibly warm as individuals, together they are even more welcoming and kind. They have been together since 1997, so needless to say their families were overjoyed when they announced they were finally engaged! The couple reside in the Bay Area but decided on a mini destination wedding in sunny Palm Springs. Sasheen and Phil are huge music fans (Phil especially loves Elvis), so it seemed only natural that they tie the knot at the Elvis Honeymoon Estate where Elvis and Priscilla spent their first year of marriage.

Marveling at all the old rock and roll memorabilia, Sasheen and Phil felt instantly connected to the mid-century estate and wanted a wedding that reflected their individual styles and paid homage to the iconic rock and roll legend… The owner of the bakery where they ordered their cake recommended a pastor to officiate their wedding, and as fate would have it, after they met with him, Phil remembered that he had played in a band with Pastor Chad 20 years ago in London! It was meant to be! The whole wedding was a complete genuine reflection of Sasheen and Phil and we wish them all the happiness as they continue their lives together.
