Joshua Tree, CA
I am beyond excited to share the photos and details of this Joshua Tree elopement with you all! For those of you who don’t know, my husband and I went on a road trip across the country. Literally. We drove from Florida to California! We stayed in Mount Baldy, where I have family that we stayed with on the mountain.
In the week leading up to our trip I reached out on the community section of Honeybook about setting up a styled Joshua Tree Elopement. Stephanie of Floraltique contacted me with interest in providing florals for the shoot. She also had an event rentals company, Hola Moderna, that was ready to provide a whole table set up for us!
Everything started coming together as we secured a couple and a hair and makeup artist, Glam by Sam. On the day of the shoot, Andrew and I drove from the top of Mount Baldy, where it was SNOWING, to Joshua Tree National Park, a desert. And it was only 2 hours away from us (we are still just blown away by that –how does that work?!!)! When we arrived at Joshua Tree, the photo session that resulted was pure MAGIC!
The vendors who made it all happen:
Let me start with the flowers from Floraltique: not only did the colors perfectly fit in with a desert-themed elopement session, but I was amazed by how artistically Stephanie crafted each arrangement. I could tell as she arranged each piece and perfected it that she sees her florals as I see my photography: like artwork. The bridal bouquet, the table centerpiece, all of it was so beautiful!
You will also see the stunning set up by Hola Moderna as you scroll through these photos. There were so many delicate, charming pieces on the table display from the golden utensils to the macramé runner. Each detailed piece came together to form the perfect look. While I may have a knack for photographing things that are beautiful, I’m terrrrrrriible at actually putting them together!! I’m so thankful that we had a professional there to do the job right!
Glam by Sam totally completed the vibe for the session by styling Sarah’s hair with beautiful waves. She also enhanced her features with a natural look that was perfect for our desert elopement.
There are soooo many photos in this post because I literally couldn’t choose between all of them!! So… enjoy!!
