Lauren + Greg
Avalon Hotel, Palm Springs
Palm Springs is such a great spot for all the friends and family to come for a weekend and relax. Lauren and Greg’s wedding weekend started with a pool party at the Avalon followed by a welcome dinner at the Rowan. We took Lauren and Greg out for a mini-adventure session in between the pool party and welcome dinner to shoot some beautiful romantic footage with them before going up to the rooftop bar at the Rowan to grab a few shots there.
We’ve seen many first dances, but never have we seen such a tightly choreographed and perfectly executed first dance as that of Lauren and Greg. We had them practice a few times in different spots so we had plenty of footage to cut together for a truly epic first dance sequence!
Lauren and Greg are such a sweet couple and their vows were so heartfelt and delivered with such feeling. We wanted the film to show all the aspects from their weekend — the love, the fun and the celebration with their friends and family. The Avalon is such a great spot for this type of weekend-long celebration as it feels private yet is right in the heart of Palm Springs.
“If you're considering The Quail & The Dove then you should already know their videography skills are unparalleled (if not... pause and go watch some). What you might not know is Jim and Melissa are a Dream to work with. Since we were doing a destination wedding we had a few facetime conversations prior to the wedding which really made it feel like we already knew them when it was wedding day. Instead of just being another vendor, Jim and Melissa felt like an extension of our friends and, I mean this in the best way, they were largely invisible for most of the time. They were even unfazed by our excessively large and loud dog trying to eat the fluffy microphone on the camera all day. They captured all the special moments, big and small, and were so seamless in their approach that even with just 24 guests, they blended in. We also didn't want a lot of direction or "staging" and they were very cool about just letting us do our thing and capturing the moments organically. The post-wedding aspects were also very easy to work with, we went back and forth until we found songs that we loved and they were able to license, and they were able to turn the video around in about 2 months which is way quicker than we were hoping. From day one until video delivery day they were quick with responses, professional, honest, and open. If you're still reading this, the point is, you should book The Quail & The Dove without hesitation and you won't regret it.”
