Built in 1962, The House Of Tomorrow was an architectural marvel of its time, landing on magazine covers for its futuristic design and amenities. Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in a Palm Springs, it’s still a sight to behold, further drawing attention to itself with a plaque out front (more on that in a second).
The house took an even more famous turn when its owners tragically died in a plane crash and Elvis snapped it up soon after as a rental. He loved the house so much that after he married Priscilla in Vegas in 1967, they spent their extended honeymoon there.
The House Of Tomorrow is as eccentric as its name suggests — there are three stories in four concentric circles and not a single room is square! And if you want your own look inside, there are guided tours of Elvis’ honeymoon hideaway.
Back in October, Joey and I visited Palm Springs for our 5 year wedding anniversary and invited Made U Look to commemorate the occasion. Those photos of my wedding dress look will be featured in the March 2016 issue of Rock n Roll Bride Magazine but in the meantime, I can share these snaps we took as the day came to an end.
After we took our vow renewal photos, Joey and I wanted to unwind and show Made U Look around our favorite neighborhood in Palm Springs. Ladera Circle is full of beautiful mid-century modern homes but even so, Elvis’ one-time hangout still draws the most attention.
Taking photos here was really special because Priscilla Presley was the inspiration for my original wedding day. I’ve always loved her look during the late 60s when she married Elvis so it felt fitting to shoot in front of her brief home.
Made U Look uses a variety of vintage cameras and films so the results are always unexpected and magical. Having photos to remember my 5 year anniversary was really important to me — now the memories can live on forever.
The second these photos were finished, I kicked off my heels, changed into something more comfortable in the car and we went out for Mexican food where we spent the night laughing and chatting. It was a great reminder that even though dressing up and taking photos is fun, real life is just as awesome.
I can’t wait to show you the vow renewal photos next year!
