Real Wedding | Milena + Vic

Milena and Vic met in medical school almost 10 years ago, while living in New York. They are both originally from California, and one of their early vacations together was to Palm Springs and Joshua tree - and they fell in love with it. So when it came to planning a wedding it was their go-to location. They wanted the wedding to be not just a celebration of their love, but also truly a getaway/vacation/party for all their loved ones. They picked Ace Hotel Palm Springs for this very reason and had photographer Caitlin Cooper there to capture their celebration with 100 of their nearest and dearest.

The theme Milena was going for in our wedding was a 70’s desert vibe- which led her to have her eyes set on Rime Arodaky’s designs. "I picked the “Sage” dress from her collection. The bell-sleeves and florals perfectly embodied that aesthetic".

Vic wore an Armani suit, that his aunt helped him pick out, and gifted him as a medical school graduation gift. Making it extra special.

Milena really wanted their wedding to be reflective of who they are. "I was hoping people would walk in and really see Milena and Vic, in all the small details. It was such a special opportunity to be able to create the vision I had in head and bring it to life!"
