A Joshua Tree Elopement: Jenn + Tom

joshua tree elopement

Jenn + Tom saw a previous elopement I featured here on GWS and wanted to do something similar, but made it totally their own. :) They have family all around the country and thought it would be pretty rad to run off into the desert and get hitched under an Oak Tree :) Then they plan to take these photos + video and go on a trip to visit all their friends and family. So rad.

They got ready together at one of my fave Palm Springs hotels, The Parker and then headed out to a super remote and secluded Oak Tree they had found a few months before. There they met up with the Officiant, Todd of The OC wedding guy and were married. Sounds pretty perfect to me! And there is also a super lovely video. Tom is a musician and wrote the song for the video. Too cool. Congrats you two lovebirds and thanks so much to Nick Radford for the photos + video.
