This DIY Joshua Tree National Park Wedding Showed Off the Natural Beauty of Both the Desert and the Couple

August 3, 2019 | Junebug Weddings

The desert was calling Gabby and Harry, and so they had the most perfect Joshua Tree National Park wedding! The intimate celebration, which began with a ceremony at Indian Cove Amphitheater and ended with a chic dinner party style reception at Colony Palms Hotel, was filled with DIY goodness from top to bottom. The couple didn’t add too much to either space, allowing the natural beauty of the desert to be a star of the day, second only to the bride’s incredible Grace Loves Lace gown, crystal headpiece, and white tassel earrings. Alyssa Marie Evans Photography and second shooter Cori Taylor Photography did a phenomenal job capturing every angle of this one-of-a-kind desert celebration!
