Watch out for the cacti, because from 4/15-4/23 BSB will be sharing ONLY park weddings and various park wedding round up’s, in honor of National Parks Week
and today we’re heading to the desert! (Refer to the bottom of this post for ways to get involved this week)
Lauren & Andrew traveled from their native New Zealand to marry in America, with the glorious vistas of Joshua Tree as their backdrop. They started their day getting ready at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, and then they road tripped to Joshua Tree National Park
for their intimate and heartfelt ceremony. It was a windy, frigid day in the desert, but you can’t even tell in these photos. Maybe their love kept them warm? They celebrated with California sparkling wine and cupcakes from a local bakery. This gorgeous elopement was put together and photographed by the incredibly talented Moxie Bright Events
and Westlund Photography
