Joshua Tree Wedding | Alana + Alan

This gorgeous Joshua Tree wedding was one FOR THE BOOKSSSS, let me tell you! After a few postponements, venue changes and redirected plans because of you-know-what, Alana and Alan’s incredible day finally arrived nearly a year and a half later and it was more beautiful than ever expected!

Joshua Tree National Park is one of the most magical places in California and it holds an extra special spot in my heart because my husband and I got married there too! When you arrive in Joshua Tree for the first time, it truly feels like you are on another planet. Not only are the desert plants and giant boulders so incredible to see up close, but there is just a different feeling in the air there. There is a sense of calmness and serenity in the desert that you just can’t find anywhere else.

When I first received an inquiry from Alana and Alan about their Joshua Tree wedding plans, I was over the moon and literally couldn’t say yes fast enough! In fact, when Alana first emailed me, I was out of the country on my honeymoon and I was so excited that I ran to the hotel lobby for some WiFi so I could respond as fast as I could!

After waiting for what felt like an eternity, their ceremony finally took place at the most gorgeous AirBnb property with their closest family members and a few cactuses as witness. After saying their “I-do’s” we hopped in our cars and headed further into the park to explore and take some photos in their favorite places. Their love of rock climbing and bouldering led them to this park so they felt it was the perfect way to honor their relationship that blossomed during their quality time spent there together, and I couldn’t agree more!

I am always looking for any excuse to go back to Joshua Tree, so if you are interested in shooting there at all, please fill out my contact form and I will show the most amazing locations!
