“I’m a New Yorker whose about to marry a Brit in Palm Springs, the wedding is likely to take place at the Frank Sinatra Twin Palms estate, the theme is going to be mid-century modern.”
Um, yes please?… I almost responded to her e-mail with just that. It immediately populated my thoughts with images of the rat pack hanging out by Frank’s pool, listening to music from the hi-fi and generally just being cooler than any of us. Who wouldn’t want to shoot a wedding at a place where that exact scenario likely played out on a weekly basis in the summer evenings of ’55.
In short, shooting this wedding was like time traveling… it was surreal and nothing short of amazing.
