A few months ago we were invited by The Wedding Artists Collective (a talented crew of photographers) to organize a venue tour in Palm Springs, California.  Any place with over 350 days of sunshine, endless blue skies and a mecca of Mid-Century Modern homes is our kinda place. Hollywood’s playground never gets old.
