I think Joshua Tree is one of those spots if I went to visit, there would be no returning to the East Coast for me!  When Flashpoint Grafix sent over this desert stunner infused with natural beauty, personality and a killer backdrop, it was love at first sight. A New Creation Flowers & Gifts created amazing single-bloom maid’s bouquets and the bride planned and designed the rest of the ultra-hip 29 Palms Inn soirée.  Meet me in the gallery for so much more.

From Flashpoint GrafixThis couple is from Venice Beach, California — nearly the polar opposite to Twentynine Palms. The ceremony was at the Blessed Sacrament Church, the after-ceremony shoot was at Joshua Tree National Park, and the reception was held at The 29 Palms Inn. Joy has great creative vision. In her planning, she created another world for her guests, using Polaroid snapshots for the guestbook, DIY spanning pendants, a mirror chandelier, pink flamingos and potted cacti for souvenirs. All the out-of-towners got an extra special treat as the sun went down and left behind a clear, star-filled sky — a memory that’s hard to duplicate with so many city lights. Matt is a DJ, so naturally he brought a couple of his team to create the vibe, and he even planned a DJ set for himself in dedication to his new bride.
