Nicole and James’ Rustic Palm Springs Elopement

More couples are turning to Elopement ceremonies in lieu of large, traditional, (and sometimes expensive!) weddings. Palm Springs is a favorite destination for couples, because it’s the perfect place for both the ceremony and the honeymoon. Lazy C Ranch offers a host of wedding packages for couples. From engagement shoots to elopements, larger weddings and after parties to vow renewals, our rustic Palm Springs ranch lets you see another side of the desert while sharing your day with your loved ones.

Nicole and James held an intimate Elopement ceremony with a few friends and family members at Lazy C Ranch, then honeymooned with us for a week. And we have to say, the photos from their couple’s shoot is absolutely gorgeous.
