Jun 29, 2010adam and jordan and the story of the girl with the coolest name in the world.

So Jordan Kaltwasser meets Adam Jordan. the big question since then always stood- "when and if you get married are you going to change your last name?" well of course she did! as the invite stated on the front, "if you really need to know just look at the back of the program..." Jordan Jordan it is. It seems to work well since she is a designer. even beyond this great name change this couple is great. they hosted their wedding outside of Memphis, TN in a spectacular location. little did they know it would be during a tornado. little did we know either. golf carts with plastic covers, sideways rain, tornado sirens, heavy wind. this was a first. and you know they still were laughing and totally into taking photos. i think the positive attitude really paid back when right after the ceremony the sky opened and the most beautiful sunset appeared. serenity.

Jun 23, 2010winner winner winner!

we decided that there were just too many good ideas out there to choose only one! so there are two winners who will be staying for free at the ace this coming sunday night and dancing their faces off at our new danceparty 
here are the winning ideas: 
from "FREDO" I think a free-form contest, where folks can submit anything that will inspire or palm springs related (pictures, songs, poems, essays, etc.) will get the most submissions. 
and from "WHITNEY" (no, not our whitney!) since it's a joint project with should be a photo contest based on things people love: dance, outdoors, people, etc. Most creative and expressive wins!

so here is the plan... we have combined these two ideas and come up with the contest for next month (sunday july 25th) submit anything inspired by the flashdance our labor of love max etc / the ace hotel / palm springs & you by creating a piece of art (collage, video, audio, poem, dance moves, etc but somehow incorporating photography) and posting it to your blog / site / etc and post your link in the comments below. the submission(s) that most cleverly and completely express those three elements will win a free night in a king patio fireplace room at the ace hotel in palm springs sunday july 25th.
