Joshua Tree might be your perfect location for your elopement. Looking for some sunshine and pretty golden photos for your wedding or elopement? Then, look no further than Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California! The rocks, dirt, and Joshua Trees’ neutral tones make a beautiful backdrop. Plus, don’t even get me started on the sun here! It is so golden and warm!
“Two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park.” (https://www.nps.gov/jotr/index.htm) Read more about this amazing park here! https://www.joshuatree.org/
Aysia and Brandon chose to have a gorgeous elopement in Joshua Tree. So many beautiful, intentional details went into planning this elopement. It was the most perfect day for them. For instance, the flowers, the ceremony space, the invitation suite, the sweetheart table…all of it complimented Joshua Tree’s desert. Thus, it was perfect for Aysia and Brandon’s wild-western-meets-sophisticated style. (I just made that up but I feel like it fits!;)
My favorite part of their elopement was their first look. I just loved the look on Brandon’s face when he saw her. The love that these two share made it seem like there was no one else in all of Joshua Tree National Park.
The way the sun cast its pretty golden light all over the rocks and the vegetation, the tall Joshua Trees towering around them, their big smiles, and just the way they look into each other’s eyes – made it the most perfect elopement, and I am so blessed that I was able to capture it for them. Enjoy a few of my favorite golden photos from their elopement.
