The iconic Joshua Tree National Park is one grand desert view punctuated by rugged rock formations and dotted cacti. Star-crossed lovers have pitched their big day in a unique landscape, where sophistication is found in simplicity, which doesn’t distract from the beautiful, clean and bright backdrop.

Delicate, flowing table runners blow gently in the wind, held in place by a modest table setting of drinking glasses, carved fruit, small white pebbles, tall glass candles and concrete planters – effortlessly reinforce the desert style. Surprising shape and texture takes the form of a cactus leaf placed on each dinner plate. And an edgy bohemian charm is seen on the seat coverings and the floor rug beside the furniture, inviting guests to mix and mingle comfortably, and watch the stars align. This setting is from the real wedding of Bailey and Josue.
