Today we are heading back to Joshua Tree National Park for another intimate desert elopement! Have we mentioned how much we love working at Joshua Tree? The national park offers the perfect location for our adventurous couple’s to celebrate. This family-focused day was filled with so many heartfelt moments. We can’t wait to plan more elopements or micro-weddings here with our clients!

The couple fell in love with this shaded spot for their ceremony that offered a focus on the natural desert scenery. We set up their simple wooden arbor and decorated it with stunning boho florals. For their desert elopement, the couple wanted to focus on a warm color palette and minimalistic decor. As a final addition, we added a vintage style rug as a place for the couple and their son to stand.
Inspired by the surrounding desert, warm orange and neutral tones created each floral piece for this elopement. Fresh pampas grass added extra texture to decorate the natural wooden arch. This couple wanted to focus on personalizing their special day. They made sure to include their son within their ceremony having him stand by their side. For their vows, they brought along a leather notebook that included past letters they had sent to each other. The couple places their vows into the notebook and read them during their ceremony. We think this is such a sweet way to be able to look back at pieces of your wedding or elopement later! After saying ‘I do’ we brought out glasses of champagne and sparkling cider for the family to celebrate.
One of our favorite aspects of elopements is the chance for extra photography time. The newlyweds and their son explored the national park while capturing memories of their special day. Check out our elopement must-haves to keep with you while adventuring!
