MARK + LEXY • LA QUINTA, CALIFORNIA
Glam La Quinta Resort Wedding

Jun 20, 2016

We dare anyone that questions things like “fate” and “soul mates” to learn more about Mark + Lexy’s love story. We’ve heard some amazing stories, and theirs definitely stands out as one that reminds us there’s a bigger plan in place for us all with the universe. They met one night in a Los Angeles bar, instantly attracted to each other and they started to plan for a real date together for the following weekend; but just a couple of days later, Mark broke his cell phone and lost most of his contacts (this was before the beauty of the iCloud!). The date never happened as a result, but as fate would have it – they bumped into each other again about six months later. Mark explained what happened, and since then they haven’t had a single day apart.

It’s love stories like theirs that just make our job so much fun. Their wedding in early June at the La Quinta Resort was a record-breaking scorcher – it reached 117 degrees the day of the wedding, most definitely the hottest wedding we have ever photographed. We didn’t even care though, because everything was just so beautiful. All of Lexy’s best friends were bridesmaids and many of the guests traveled to the wedding from the United Kingdom, where Lexy is originally from. Mark’s best friend since childhood, Kenny, came all the way from Boston to stand by Mark’s side. It was so inspiring to see their families together, we loved just how well everyone meshed together – everyone was just family, didn’t matter which side, and we LOVED that.

A special detail that really ties in the family connection to their wedding is that Mark’s simple gold band belonged to his grandfather, and Mark is the latest in the line of Lynch men to wear this wedding band.

The wedding was planned by Michelle Stansfield with Chic Productions (who we’ve been friends with for years, but this was actually our first full wedding working together)! We loved shooting their ceremony at La Quinta Resort’s La Casa patio, and the Mountain Dunes Clubhouse served as a beautiful spot for their reception, overlooking the lake with the mountains off in the distance.
