We’ve all seen (and loved!) modern Joshua Tree weddings. They’re trendy, clean, and a minimalist’s dream! But what about for the lovers of color? This is the wedding inspo you’ve been looking for! Event designers/florists Shindig Chic and the planners behind Hearthrob Weddings teamed up to create something new and fresh for brides who love the aesthetic of Joshua Tree but want to inject a little color. Through the lens of Mary Costa, the desert came to life in a brand new way Does this sound like your dream wedding? Read on!
Dose of Color
We’re starting where all great weddings do…with a killer flat lay! This invitation suite by Maison Blanche is serving up a large dose of color for guests to revel in. Feeling pressure to pick just one or two colors for your color palette? Don’t! This is proof that you can incorporate many different colors and still look perfectly put together.
Are you as obsessed with this bezel-set ring as we are? *Hint hint* It’s the ‘Caroline’ ring by Single Stone!
As if the desert weren’t beautiful enough on its own, now we have a stunning bride to make it even better! Let’s break down the look:
An understated, strapless dress is the perfect choice for this laidback location. This gown by Alon Livine has the perfect sense of fun and flow to make you feel comfortable, but still like a bride. But if that isn’t quite enough for you, add a crown! This hairpiece by La Soie Bridal is guaranteed to make you both look and feel absolutely regal.
This bouquet by Shindig Chic is a color lover’s absolute dream.
Yes, the groom can be colorful, too! If you’re feeling daring but red isn’t quite your speed, a light blue suit is the way to go. The contrast here is absolutely amazing!
This arch is AMAZING! If you’re looking to amplify your wedding ceremony with a take on modern art, let this woven installation be your guide.
What’s more indicative of a desert than some cute little cacti?! These potted beauties are a simple and sophisticated way to add a floral touch to your wedding ceremony decor (and without breaking the bank)!
One of the things we adore about this is the sheer size of the ceremony arch. Utilizing something that is significantly larger in proportion to the soon-to-be spouses creates a grand and impressive look.
A wedding like this will have any couple smiling ear to ear!
Cacti and Friends
No wedding is complete without a personalized bar! And a bar in the desert means….cute little cacti and themed drinks! Tequila is clearly the spirit of choice, and cocktails made of exotic fruits (like prickly pear!) will make your guests feel right at home.
The neutrals of the landscape play so beautifully with the colors of the reception, don’t ya think?
Vibrant red napkins truly pop against the sweet shade of pink tablecloth. Instead of overwhelming the look with multi-colored glasses, three different shapes of clear glasses tie the look into perfect unison. With a pop of gold from the utensils, of course!
Something we think is super important when planning your wedding is creating a menu that matches your venue to a T. Be sure to incorporate foods that are local to the area around you for the truest experience for both yourself and your guests.
We would love to be in this setting drinking prickly pear margaritas and toasting to our newlywed friends!
This colorful Joshua Tree wedding wouldn’t be complete with a cake to match! This pink masterpiece by Nicole Bakes Cakes rounded out the event in the best way possible.
We hope you’ve felt inspired by this colorful take on a wedding in Joshua Tree, California! Is a minimalist vibe more your style? No worries – we’ve got something for everyone! When in doubt, surf our top trending weddings to help you nail your perfect wedding. Happy planning!
